Some of our friends encouraged us to visit different shipping companies here in our place and asked if they offer auto shipping that is practical and of course, one that we could afford too. We knew that this would be another additional expense if we decided to buy our van in Manila. We inquired several shipping offices and been informed of the price which is quiet bigger that what we expected. Another thing we should consider is the safety of our unit. Since shipping company here accepts cars, vans, trucks and pick-ups for transport, but it would be loaded together with other things like vegetables, furniture, dry goods and many others.
This gave us second thoughts and we agreed to find one good unit only here in our place. Thanks to the help of our friends, we have now our second hand van that is not only cheap but also works very, very well. Maybe in the future, if we decide to buy a car or a van in Manila, we have to consider a land trip that will take us around four days of travel. That is one exciting thing to do!
