I have had some recent inquiries about what kind of package and mail forwarding service to use for those moving to the Philippines or those expats already residing here. I highly recommend using MyUS.com. MyUS.com has been helping shoppers and business owners alike shop without borders since 1997. They are the first, largest and most trusted leader today in package forwarding, servicing over 100,000 customers in over 200 countries. The company prides themselves on employing experts in international shipping logistics, package consolidation, export compliance and customs documentation.
My asawa and I moved to the Philippines back in July 2009. In order to "save" money, I decided not to use any mailing forwarding service at the time. In retrospect, that probably wasn't my smartest decision. Don't worry, I've made plenty more since then. We had no mail delivery in Guimaras where we first moved to (and don't have any in our new home at a subdivision outside of Iloilo City) but did occasionally receive important mail that was delayed for months and was delivered by an official from our barangay.
On different occasions our mail has gone to businesses in the Metro Manila area that someone in that company was kind enough to use their own postage and forward to us. Who knows what mail we might have missed that has gone to other unknown destinations in the Philippines? I never received my last W-2 from my former employer that was sent to the Philippines twice. I had to delay filing my income tax return and fortunately I reached someone in the company that sent me a copy via email.
But, Dave, I'm going to do everything online. I don't need a mail and package forwarding service once I move to the Philippines. Well, I think it's something you should consider. I try to do everything online, too, but sometimes I need papers from the States. I've missed important documents from my former employer and the IRS because I didn't have a forwarding service. I honestly think that it would be wise to check out MyUS.com and the services they offer.
