Have a  balikbayan box to send to CDO.  Read the experiences of others in a current thread, but am wondering if anyone has had any experience with 'Pinoy Kargo', or 'Forex', two local shippers in our area?  Would like to go with LBC, but they are not local.  Any suggestions ?

Forex has been excellent for me. Door to door, Los Angeles to Danao city Cebu. Boxes have never been opened, smashed a little but good shape. And they do ship direct to Cebu now. Before would have to go to Manila first then Cebu.

I've used Forex in the past to both Cebu, Butuan and Surigao City. No lost boxes and nothing damaged, other than the boxes.

but am wondering if anyone has had any experience with 'Pinoy Kargo'

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO.

 

It took almost seven months for our boxes to finally arrive from PK.  And their "tracking site" has been broken for years.

 

Just do a search on Yelp for other horror stories (13 of them) about PK.

Have had good luck with UMAC Express Cargo over the years when shipping U.S. to So. Leyte.

 

I'm west coast U.S., don't know if they are nationwide or not.

 

They pick up, too. Sweet, when you drive a Civic.

FOREX CARGO

We used to use UMAC from the SE coast of Florida, but LBC became cheaper. We have never had a problem with either.

Same from here in the middle of nowhere Florida.

 

I had deliveries to Santa Rosa Laguna, Sorsogon and Dumaguete. Always less than 2 months.

 

Roger mentioned LBC but I don't think they have a partner office within 50 miles of me.

Don't remember where he is in Florida, but there is an LBC SE area rep. What we do is use the local { Lantana Florida) Philippine grocery in the area. The handle both UMAC and LBC and can quite often get a discount on the LBC. I had a business card for the guy and will see if I can find it. If not I can have my wife get his number so you can call him and see if there is a pickup point near you.

"Forex World" US is the one I used and had no complaints. Door to door, Nothing opened, 2 month shipping time, web tracking status etc. In March mine did go through Manila facility before heading to Cebu.
