I just got a viber message from SC. They gave me a 15% off voucher for my next shipment with them, since my last one has been “preparing for shipment” for 2 or 3 weeks now.

after the last order I had with Shipping Cart which took close to 2 months to get here, I tried another consolidator. 

the thing with Shipping Cart is they're based in California, so whatever you buy, may 9 or 10% sales tax pa yata.  I tried out Kango kasi their warehouse is in Delaware and walang sales tax.  Panalo itong Kango...  their fees is lower than shipping cart.  I used them to ship the Lenovo Duet I ordered.  Dumating sa warehouse nila ng July 14 or 15 yata, dumating sa PHL July 25, released a few days later kasi they were disinfecting their office pa daw.

My items that arrived in their warehouse last july 28 naka upload na sa cart. I guess madami lang talaga silang backlog during the lockdown?

I'm trying Kango as well. Maganda nga yung tax-free status nila lalo na kung walang tax refund facility yung seller. 

Yung package ko, within 3-days lumabas na sa cart. After entering the declared value of the item, pwedeng i-select ang ship-out date depending on the next available date tapos within a day or two, nakatanggap ako ng invoice tapos shipped-out na yung package kahit hindi ko pa nababayaran yung shipping fee. Basta bayaran ko dapat before final delivery para walang delay. $18.50 ang minimum charge nila para sa consolidated packages. Ngayon in-transit na yung package.

Anyway, ang concern ko lang ngayon, nakatanggap ako ng email sa kanila:

Dear valued customer:

This is to notify that we will only allow PICK UP of package at our local office in Timog (address 89 Timog Avenue Brgy. South Triangle QC) until we are able to address our manpower issues.

We are asking for your kind consideration and understanding at this time.

Kindly call our hotline at 8-7152646 for any concerns and pick up schedule, you may also contact us thru our Facebook page – Kango Express Ph, Instragram – kangoexpressph

Thank you and stay safe.

Kango Express Management

Mukhang suspended ang door-to-door delivery nila. Hopefully by the time dumating yung akin, meron na ulit. Buti na lang, small item worth $25 lang muna pinaship ko sa Kango para subukan sila.

Yung kangoexpress.com website po ba not secured? Issue po ba yun?

Yung ilang reviews sa facebook parang di maganda. May ilan nawawalan ng packages. Try ko na lang din siguro.

oo nga, i had to pick up my item sa office nila sa Timog, buti malapit lang ako.  mukhang may positive case sila either sa warehouse or sa delivery team nila.

in my case, since ung binili ko is $200, the $20 I saved on sales tax, napunta na sa shipping costs sa Kango.

Anybody know if LBC or other couriers offer a pickup service and they can ship to places outside Metro Manila like Iloilo? Couldn't find it on the LBC website because nag-eerror yung site nila. Lalamove only delivers within Metro Manila. Gusto ko sana yung parang Grab Delivery na they'll pick up the item and send/deliver it to anywhere in the Metro except I need the item shipped to Iloilo. Thanks!

Did they have a more expensive rate for the laptop like SC's special handling rate?

I see. thanks. I'll just assume same rate as with SC for estimates. Wala kasing nakalagay na rates for special handling.

just to give you an idea... nung December, I shipped a Samsung Tablet S6 using Shipping Cart. Cost was $42.25

for the Lenovo Duet this time around  and a tempered glass protector using Kango, I paid $29.65

My first package has been “preparing for shipment” for more than 2 weeks now. SC says it could take up to 18 days from upload but could still arrive by the estimated date. My estimated date is August 10 but I’m not too confident. They did give me. 15% off voucher for the month of September, but it has to be 6lbs or more.

^SC is heavily backlogged at the moment.

I remember years ago  when Shippingcart was not as popular as it is today, an item will appear in the cart within 24-48 hours and air cargo transit times to my doorstep only took 3-5 days.
