  • Most Unusual Service

    I have become an authorized "balikbayan" box shipping agent. Look that one up for the most unusual service I have ever offered to add income to the facility.

    How interesting!!! Do you only have Filipino customers who procure these from you? Do you also take care of the shipping of the boxes? Would be interested in hearing how high the demand is for this service!

      Currently the only customers we have are shipping to the Phillipines and demand is sufficient to fill a 40 foot container at least once a month. The company that does the shipping rents a total of eight 10x15 spaces and an office from us. They handle all the serious work, I merely dispense boxes and put some in their units that are dropped off here locally. The lady in charge of this operation has said they may expand shipping to other countries and that would be fine with me, more boxes, more storage spaces needed equals more money for me. I am fortunate that the facility has a large warehouse area and a loading dock capable of handling the containers otherwise it would not be feasible to offer this service.
