So, you want to send a "balikbayan box" to the Philippines but you don't know where to buy the box?
Don't worry, we got you covered. Below are links to places where you can purchase a box
for use in sending your "balikbayan box" to the Philippines. Links are noted if purchase is done
online only or in store near you. By the way, most of these places are not associated with us in any way.
Maharlikan Forwarder uses 28x18x18 as our large (standard) size box.
We also offer shipping for a smaller 24x18x18 size box for a little less.
Consider buying double-walled boxes for maximum protection during transit. Otherwise, you must double your box (putting 1 box inside another). Do this if you will be using a single-walled box just to make sure your box won't open during transit. Pack tightly and tape your box properly. Make sure none of your items can be move out of place inside the box.
If you want to purchase boxes from Maharlikan Forwarder, you must ask the agent near you. Call toll free, (877) 533-2228. If you are outside our area of service, you can purchase your box here online. We have also listed several national store chains where you can purchase your boxes directly in stores near you.
