How To Ship Items Internationally via Shiply

Looking to ship products internationally? Read on. 

When I started working right after finishing college, I have to move from my parent's house in the province to live in Manila where my office is located. By land travel, it will take 14 hours of bus ride and by flight, it is an hour to reach the capital city of the Philippines from our town. It was a sad moment not only because I will now be living independently but I am this sentimental girl who loves to get surrounded by my treasured things in our home like my old piano, my favorite wooden chair and my antique closets handed over by my grandma! That time, I had no choice but leave all these at home because of the outrageous fees, huge inconvenience of processing the request and no assurance of when will these things going to show up in my rented apartment here in Manila. When my favorite uncle migrated to USA, he has so much stuff to give away like his old furniture, bicycle and of course toys for us! Twenty years ago, the shipping charge to send products internationally to the Philippines costs gold so he would only send over a few things that are smaller in size. 

Fast forward to today, shipping items around the world is so easy that I wish I can turn back the time. Shiply, an online platform to move heavy & bulky items is all you need. Recommended by a trusted friend, I checked the website a few days ago because my uncle who is now a New Yorker by citizenship is our all year round Santa. He has finally said yes to send our family a late Christmas gift we all have been dreaming for: a 49" full HD Digital LED TV! I'd love to share to you what I learned about using Shiply below.
