i have noticed that just like see if you can bring a pet from some countries to the usa its very very very hard .... guess the shippers don't want the hassle of dealing with having to follow the rules

Cool site, Atlas quoted me $9,000 usd for a 20' container, the site you posted from Northern CA to Manila same size container $2,300

 

Big difference, not 100% sure why. Not quite door to door, they will pick up the container at my house but you have to get your stuff at the port in Manila or Cebu.

I looked at from the Port of Tacoma to Cebu for a high-cube 40' can and is was $2,816, pretty good price actually. From the Port of Tacoma to where I am in Alaska I pay around $4,000+ per dry 40' can and that is with a long term contract and shipping over 400 per year.

Maybe that is because their program is assuming that you are shipping a container "by sea" FROM the US.

Exactly my point. It wouldn't cost anywhere near that, above the $2,300 USD, to get the container to its final destination.

I just have a few items I want to ship over and a friend also was looking at splitting it. At $2,300 I am willing to split that and ship my 14' sea kayak plus my tool chests and 20 or so boxes, but to split $9K there just is no way to justify shipping y things.

Has anyone picked up a container at a Philippine port and paid the fees? Wondering what that might actually cost?

We paid $3400 to ship a 40' container from loading point in Florida to the port of Cebu.

 

Many will tell you that you need a Customs Broker to clear shipments through Customs at the port, but we acted as our own broker and saved quite a bit of money. At that time (2012) the rate we were quoted for a broker was 120,000 pesos and all the fees cost us right around 46,000 pesos. We have a stack of receipts that is almost one half inch thick. It was time consuming, but saved us 74,000 pesos. There was an attempt to get a few extra pesos by an inspector who said that if they inspected the container it would cost money to get a crew to unload and reload the container and take extra time. My wife said we have time, if you want to inspect it go ahead, He didn't feel like doing the extra work so he released it just by opening the doors and looking inside.

The standard rate was suppose to be 1.000 peso a foot we got a 40 footer of household stuff out of Cebu for 82,000 peso... I just shipped a car last year and it was 2,300 us from HTX in Long beach California to manila all straight forward but once it gets here hold on to your wallet tight no one signs for free and it takes lots of signers to get cargo released

depends on what is in it and who your wife knows that can help you with the paperwork
