Ordered Books from Amazon Shipped by JAC

Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

So, having my free time occupied by reading lots of different e-books, well mostly, personal development and positive thinking type. I want to own a paperback version of those books that I deemed to be very useful so that I can share it at home. But after my last traumatic experience of ordering online, see my previous post here, I need to find a way of bringing my ordered books to safety :). I learned from reading forums here and there that some are using a reroute system.  So using our favorite search engine, here’s what I think to be a likely candidate:

1. Johnny Air Cargo

2. Manila Forwarder

3. Pobox.ph

4. MyUS.com

5. Xend Express

After reading and analyzing each, I decided to give Johnny Air Cargo (JAC) a try. Since they’ve been operating since 2006 and are still active so I guess they are doing a great job, ne? Hehe. So reading from another blog and verifying in JAC location, I emailed Miss Analyn Diego:

Hello!!

I’m going to order books from Amazon.com and I’m thinking of using Johnny Air Cargo to ship my orders here in Philippines.

What steps should I do? Where do I register?

Thank you.

Surprisingly, she got on me very fast and she replied back this:

Dear (My Name),

There. So I made my purchased at Amazon and ordered these 4 books:

2 of : The Ultimate Secrets of Total Self-Confidence (Revised)

1 of : The Secret of the Soul: Using Out-of-Body Experiences to Understand Our True Nature

1 of : Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self

Ohh, those books sound weird right? Heheh, we’ll I’m weird so there’s nothing unusual on those books  :). The first one, is about personal development and I ordered two because I’m going to give one as a gift to one of my friend. The 2nd and 3rd book is about OBE and Lucid Dreaming. I’ll talk more about those topics later and maybe post some reviews on those books. And by the way, those books are over $25 so shipping is free :).

So those orders was shipped on November 10, 2009.  Using tracking on Amazon it arrived at JAC warehouse on November 15. It was then shipped by JAC from New York to Philippines on November 19. I picked it up then on SM Megamall on November 24. The books are sealed in a hard plastic and put inside of a Amazon box and weight 3 lbs. When I arrived on SM Megamall, I picked it up in its original Amazon box without any sign of tampering. That’s nice eh? I then pay their service and shipping free of around 1300 pesos since it weights 3 lbs. The fee is based on weight by the way.

Overall, I’m happy with JAC service :). I got my books unharmed and I have dealed with their very friendly agents. Oh, even the staffs of JAC at SM Megamall are very accomodating.

I would definitely use their service again in the near future. Ciao! 🙂
