The Shipping Container has Arrived!

Finally! This shipping container, which left at the end of October, has arrived at the Kahama District Hospital! You can imagine our frustration at the container being delayed for so long at the port in Dar-es-Salaam, especially when the port and storage costs were rising daily! 

Thanks to the joint efforts of our agent Emmanuel, and Barry T. here in Canada, who put us in touch with Max who was able to visit the port on a regular basis, a large proportion of the accumulated fees were waived and we were able to have the container released. 
A great reminder of the amazing support we have received over the years from Big Steel Box, Penticton.

The motorbike wasn't a part of the shipment! 

Thank you so much to everyone who donated resources, funds, time and skills towards filling and shipping our fifth forty-foot shipping container! 

We had already decided not to ship anymore containers for the foreseeable future, and given the angst of this experience it was a great decision!

  5. Based on my experience the most reliable packers and movers in India is Agarwal Packers and Movers I had recently taken their service and they really provided a hassle free moving. Well that was my experience but before select any packers and movers do check their website and other details because many packer and movers company wont tell you all the hidden charges make sure the company is verified or not.
