I sent it through Manila Forwarders and it was my first and last box sent from them. 1/3 of the items in the box were gone! My lessons? Do not put any metal which are numerous. It triggers the custom to open my box probably because of the garden tools that I sent. Anyway, even if I complain, it is still useless! Philippine customs, if you open the box, make sure to seal it back properly because the public will never know who is the culprit! Bravo to UMAC, for 3 years, my boxes arrived safely and in good condition! Manila Forwarders, I have been using your company for a year and sad to say, I had a bad experienced! One box is all it takes! UMAC tracking here: umaccargo.net/tracking/

UMAC Balikbayan Box
I bet some of you are tired hearing about boxes opened by the customs or items lost, right? I was one of the thousands who became a victim of this mishap. I was using Manila Forwarders when I was in Mississippi and UMAC in Florida. It was the box that I sent last September and arrived December which was hugely opened with X on the side!
