    Any idea how long it might take to ship a container from Trier Germany (near the Luxembourg border) to Dumaguete? Wife’s friend and husband doing it.

    I have no idea about the amount of time it will take.
    If your friend can find someone that ships DOOR TO DOOR they will avoid a lot of hassle with Customs and local shipping companies.
    My neighbor shipped from the UK to Cebu with no problems. Getting the container through customs and to Dauin was a costly nightmare.

    My 40' container took 8 weeks to go from Los Angeles to Cebu. I had to meet the container in person on arrival in Cebu and walk it through customs and then hire another local transport to bring it to port of Sibulan.

    I brought a 20' container from UK 6 years ago. UK shipping agents had a local agent (Goetz) in Manila. I visited them, filled in the forms and they handled the rest, including customs, transhipping the container to Dumaguete, unloading and delivery to Valencia.
    From UK, ship leaves once a month and takes 1 month to Manila. Customs / transhipping to Dumaguete took another 3 weeks.

    I paid the original shipping agent in UK, and they sorted out the rest. I didn't have to pay import duty in Philippines because I did it under my SRRVisa. I believe it was about GBP5000, but I think that included packing up the house in UK . I don't have the paperwork any more, I'm afraid.
