A forty foot container will run you around $7,000 to get to Oklahoma, maybe $5,800 to a port on the West Coast.  A twenty footer will run maybe five hundred less to the port.

 

You will need a U.S. broker as well that will set you back around $800 or so and pay duties if any on the contents.  Lots of paperwork on both ends, export license from the Philippines, no license needed in the U.S., just a broker and a bond to cover any taxes or duties.

Who did you use and what was the cost to get stuff to Cebu,? I assume from Los Angeles harbor to Cebu.

I shipped from the U.S. to Cebu in 2012.  The forwarder I used in the Philippines was Goetz.  They have an office in Manila and Cebu.  It was the best experience I've had in the Philippines, tho I was expecting disaster!  I'm sure they could handle everything for you.  Here is their info.:

I just got a quote on a 20ft container, Cebu to Miami, FL.     $12,000.00!

 

And that does not include DTHC, duties and taxes, inspection fee(if any), port storage, demurrage, handling of bulky items(e.g. piano), third party(e.g. electrician)

 

I figure he has over 100% profit built into that quote.
