What necessary things to bring in moving to Manila from USA?
Hello! We are moving to Makati from the USA this summer and have a partial shipment we can bring with us. I was wondering if I could have your advice on items I should ship! THANKS!
Eli Curry: Everything is super tiny! Learn to live minimalistic in the PI! Leave it all behind 🤣
Eli Curry: Bring ur clothes, electronics, and important documents. That’s about it to hit the ground running!
Gabriel Brewer: Top of mind, best not to ship electrical appliances that are big and are purely 110volts as we are 220V here in the Philippines. You can just purchase them here as it might just match your cost of bringing it here. Welcome in advance to Manila!
Vincent Boone: Send in the autobot!
Lauryn Powers: Hi Megan,Here you can find fully furnished condos which usually provide almost all the basic needs of the house. All the major furniture, kitchen essentials( cooking and serving dishes), and appliances.All you might need is your personal stuff.
Kaitlyn Howard: and bring your outdoor stuff if you plan on hiking coz it’s cheaper there! $20 for a LifeStraw on Amazon…how i wish it cost that much here..
Jillian Perez: You dont need to bring BIG ELECTRICAL equipments like TV etc cos it will not work and it cost a lot in shipping it in the Philippines because u can buy it our countryJust bring your personal belonging
Miriam Bates: Don’t bring electronics, the electricity here is 220V most of it will not work. Some furniture, clothes. If you have a place where to leave and is without furniture bring that.
Michelle Mckinney: Good luck… you’ll need it. And a lot of patience. I’m outta’ here soon. Dito ko tatlong taon na
Amina Weaver: 1. Do not bring anything that is 110V other than laptops and cell phones. 2. Other than that, stock up heavily on things you love from Wal-Mart/Amazon, since you will not be able to get those items in the Philippines, or they will be double the price. If you don’t have room to bring on the plane, ship them via LBC3. Money, and lots of it. Although cost of living for some things are low, most things such as electricity, imported food, immigration fees, gas, and many other things are quite expensive 4. Think things through twice. Are you aware of the traffic situation in Manila? Be wary of “agents” that will try to “help” you find a place to stay.5. Explore other great areas to live in Southeast Asia, such as Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, South Korea, etc…
Bradley Weber: Bring your sense of humor as well, que the incoming Megan Fox jokes.
