    Hi to all!

    I was just wondering, how much is the shipping cost of items from the states to our country, say for example, Mag wheels, 18" plus tires, 4pcs.

    Anyone? Thank you!

    if you use a balikbayan box (like rey langit's) around US$40-65 ang isang box door-to-door delivery. and a box can probably contain 2 mag wheels.

    it takes 2-3 months to reach philippine shores.

    yup, balikbayan box, mas mura. punuin mo na rin ng mga damit pampasalubong sa mga kamag-anak mo

    ganun ginagawa ng sis-in-law ko. hindi nga lang parts ng sasakyan like mags

    pwede siguro. basta magkasya sa loob ng balikbayan box. but i know they also have an option for bulky (irregularly sized objects), pricier nga lang yun.

    any point from USA. hanap ka lang ng mapagtatanungang pinoy sa area nyo kung san sila nagpapadala ng balikbayan box. usually, alam nila yan

    Paps, may nakita ako Johnny Cargo sa Megamall but im not sure yet kung how much ang price nila.

    Anyway, somebody told me 1 month daw ang shipping?

    sana mabili ko na mags na yun.

    Kakasya ang 18" wheels sa balikbayan box (2/box) pero dapat walang tires na naka-mount. Big risk of bengkong though kasi hindi ka makakalagay ng sufficient padding around dahil exact lang ang box.

    Better if you ship it as odd-sized cargo with tires mounted. Your supplier will ship it with a piece of cardboard sa harap at sa likod at naka strap. The cardboard will protect the face from scratches and the tires will protect the rim from bengkong.

    Typical charge ng shipper for odd-sizes is $18-19/cubic foot. Johnny Air specializes in air cargo but I know they do have seafreight as well. Make sure it's going by seafreight kasi baka mahimatay ka sa presyo kung via airfreight.
