How to Ship Items to Holy Cross

By November 25, 2014 February 12th, 2018 No Comments

Great news!  I’ve finally discovered a way of shipping items to Holy Cross that is reliable, quick and does not result in having to pay large amounts of duty at our end.  We recommend Belize Freight.

Here’s how it works:

1) Find out if Belize Freight schedule pick-ups in your area.  If they don’t pick-up from you city, don’t worry – you can ship to their main warehouse in Miami, or order online and deliver to their warehouse.  Pick-up is from your door, you’ll just need to wait for them to arrive on the day they have set. CANADA – sorry, I don’t know any shipping options, other than to order online and send to these folk.
2) Call 832-403-1627, which is the main office. They will give you the number for your local representative. (There is an email address on the website, but emails can go unanswered – much better to call).
3). Call your local representative, who will give you all the details for your area. He or She will need to know the dimensions of the box and a rough description of the goods that are inside. Your representative will help you calculate the  cubic footage of your packages. (You will be charged by the cubic foot, not by the weight).
4). When you pack, use good quality boxes or barrel, as the good will be handled many times during shipping.
5) To find out what Holy Cross needs, view on wishlist or email me at volunteerbelize@gmail.com.  The wishlist is updated monthly and kept fairly short for simplicity, so if you have something to donate and you don’t see it on the wishlist we probably do need it – just email me to check.
6). Pack and ship to us!  Read these instructions from Belize Freight. Our school address is
Holy Cross Anglican Primary School
San Pedro
Ambergris Caye
Belize
Phone: +501-226-2346
Email Linda Carter at holycrossschool2002@outlook.com
NOTE: Inside the box, with all the donated goods, please include a check for $10, which covers the cost of transporting from the mainland of Belize to our school. Make the check out to Holy Cross Anglican School. Include your name and email so we can let you know everything arrived safely.
That’s pretty much it. Happy Shipping!
