Quezon City Central Post Office

I received a notice during Holy Week that I have a parcel to claim from the Quezon City Central Post Office. I assumed it was the package which my very good friend from Qatar sent to us. Since it's a holiday, I was able to pick up the parcel earlier today after lunch. 

Considering the location and because I don't really know how to get there, I rode a taxi cab. There are available directions over the net when I searched for it last night but I find it too complicated. Haha ok that was my excuse because it's really HOT and I don't want to transfer rides. 

How to get there:
From Welcome Rotonda: Ride an FX/PUJ to Agham Road. Get off at Agham road and ride a tricycle. Tell the driver to drop you at the Post Office. Tricycle fare costs P20.

The building looked like a normal government building but it's really OLD. Some parts of the ceiling are falling off, dusts everywhere, and from its look outside, it doesn't look like an office but an abandoned building. There are several counters and when I arrived, only the window 37 has a line of people.

I proceeded to Window 37 for the validation and to present my I.D. After the validation, you will then transfer to Window 36 adjacent to Window 37 for the payment. You will pay P50 and after the payment, you can now claim your parcel at window 39. All the steps went smoothly, as in! I think it took me only 10 minutes to claim the parcel and before he handed it to me, he inspected the details written and opened it before giving it to me. I think it is the SOP that the details should match the contents of the parcel.

I will not disclose ALL the contents of the package but it is in good condition and not damaged, stored well I think, and wrapped tight. The little girl is very happy with her chocolates; they didn't melt at all, soft but not melted.

Despite the office' appearance, I COMMEND them for being so organized. The employees are warm and smiling - yes they are old but not grumpy.

  1. First time I heard a nice experience from picking up a package at a Philippine Post Office, so far! Well,good that you didn't encounter any hassles. The last time I shipped a gift package to a friend, she got so pissed. And that was the last time I ever shipped something to the Phils. hehehe!

    1. Yes I'm very glad I didn't experience anything bad in claiming my parcel. Maybe it's a case to case basis also.

  2. I expected you to have a horrific experience, but it's good that things turned out great. I hope all other post offices' staff are as organized and friendly.

    1. I don't know too. It's actually my first time but there are other services that you can make the delivery straight from your home. I guess it's cheaper to go to the post office to claim something.

  10. Honestly I thought you will be having a horrible experience with post office. Good thing you didn't have hardtime claiming your parcel. How I wish all government offices will be like that.

  11. God bless that officer. We regularly send balikbayan box with big holes at the side, or broken, and/or missing items.
