I was so impressed with Manila Forwarders, a balikbayan box delivery service that I used here in Mississippi. It is $30 more than UMAC but, I am using the Jumbo box and I noticed that exactly 4 weeks, the box is already in Manila. It will take less than two weeks before delivery but, it is still FAST for me. My mother told me that Manila Forwarders cover the box with a huge plastic cellophane for protection. So far, I am satisfied with their service and the family who is in-charge in receiving the box here in Biloxi-Ocean Springs area is truly TRUSTWORTHY. I highly recommend this company if you want to send a Balikbayan Box to your family back home.
Update: The box did not arrived on this date of the POST.
