How to Send Cargo from Abu Dhabi to Manila via LBC?

Filipino Way - Balikbayan Box

When Filipinos heard this word ''Balikbayan Box''. Pinoys tend to get excited easily. And Expecting something from it.


Wonder why? Of course, Overseas Filipino Workers or OFW are get used to or a taking advantage of buying such sale items and will be kept it in that box for a couple months. And when the month of December is approaching, Its time for the box to be sent out in the Philippines. Filipinos tend to send one month before Christmas since this is how Filipino give gifts to everyone. A Filipino tradition that's been doing ever since. Filipino way indeed.


Before working as an OFW. I am receiving such "Steyts Side" from my relatives or friends in the USA.
However, more likely, regardless if it is from the US or abroad. Filipinos tend to say it as "Steyt Side" - (State Side) since its imported from abroad.

The feeling of happiness when someone gave you some imported stuff?  Regardless if it is toothpaste or "Toblerone", Filipinos will appreciate it as this is just once in a while. Some Pinoys will even post it on social media. For others, its kinda weird, but for Filipinos, Who cares? It is just-so-you-know thing, And we are happy about it.


When I started working in the UAE. I promised myself that I will be sending out some stuff from my Family.
Easy? Not really. I need to wait for a sale of the groceries and buy promotional goods. And having a budget for these can be a bit skeptical since I need to do the budgeting of my allowance and other miscellaneous expenses.

It will take even months to full the box. But eventually when its time to seal the box?
Regardless of not having these stuff on your end,  the happiness that you felt thus your Family is overwhelmed and excited to receive these stuff. It is Priceless. 


I recently purchased a Smart TV. I send it thru LBC Express.

Since I send a balikbayan box before with them. My aunt received the box in a good condition. No spillage of liquid items inside. Everything is in good condition. After that, I am confident to choose this courier again.  So I did not hesitate to call their contact center and ask what are the promo offers that they have.


Since I'm in the UAE, The contact number of lbc is 800 522111- Toll-Free

The agent advised me that if the screen size starts at 48 to 50 inches. The charge includes the crating will be AED630 or $172 currently exchange rate at the moment.

Its affordable compared to other courrier that I recently inquired before.

Booking an appointment via there contact center is very easy. However, you can also schedule a pick up via online. For me, I highly recommend calling there call center for its easy and hassle-free. The agent will ask your specific location,  after which the agent will check the availability of delivery team to pick up the box. 

Call Center timings are open from 8 AM till 12 Midnight.


In my case, the scheduled pick up of delivery was the following day. So it was quick.

You will pay upfront for the delivery team and they will be providing the receipt for the transaction and the reference number will be issued for tracking afterward.


As far as I notice, they update the tracking number, three days after accepting the box. 

And it took exactly 47 days to arrived in my hometown in the Philippines.
