While quarantine measures are more relaxed than they used to be, staying at home as much as possible is still the smart thing to do. So despite that a lot of us are itching to head back home and reunite with family and friends, it’s best to keep that trip on hold for now. But fret not — two of the country’s leading bus lines, Victory Liner and Bicol Isarog, have joined forces to help bring our loved ones closer to us.
You may have already heard about Victory Liner’s Drop & Go service, which has been a particularly big help in recent months, allowing families to send each other essentials and care packages amid the COVID-19 pandemic. While this cargo padala service was initially limited to Central and Northern Luzon, Victory Liner’s partnership now allows us to send packages from Baguio all the way to Bicol, and back — a milestone for this heritage company.
Even better news: This terminal-to-terminal cargo service to Bicol includes several pick-up and drop-off points, in order to better serve those living in Pangasinan and Tarlac. Curious about where they are? Read on to find out more!
Cargo delivery to Bicol from Bicol and vice versa — everything you need to know
In collaboration with Bicol Isarog’s Cargo Padala Express offering, Victory Liner’s Drop & Go service now extends to the Bicol Region. Originating in Baguio, Sison in Pangasinan, and Tarlac City, the terminal-to-terminal cargo service directly connects to its Southern endpoints in Camarines Sur and Albay. And of course, deliveries may also be made from Bicol to Baguio — so Bicolanos can send love back to Baguio, too!

- Sison Bus Stop, Sison, Pangasinan

How to send your cargo
Another thing we love about Victory Liner’s cargo delivery to Bicol? It’s as simple as 1, 2, 3! In just a few easy steps, you can send some love over to your family and friends in Camarines Sur and Albay. Here’s all you need to do:
- Make sure your parcel is properly packed. Documents must be placed in a sealed brown envelope, while goods (especially perishable items) should ideally be placed in crates or styrofoam containers. The names of the sender and receiver must be included as well.
- Head to the appropriate drop-off terminal and proceed to the Drop & Go office.
- Fill out the freight form. Don’t forget to include the contact numbers of both the sender and receiver!
- Have your cargo inspected and weighed in order to determine the cost for delivery. Take note that illegal, dangerous, poisonous, or live goods are not allowed onboard. Find the full list of prohibited cargo here.
- Pay the necessary cargo delivery fee.
- Have your cargo delivered!
Once your parcel is ready for pick-up at your chosen destination, you’ll receive an SMS from Victory Liner. So, be sure to keep your lines open! Recipients may pick up the packages at the necessary terminal when most convenient to them; pick-ups may be done daily between 8am and 5pm. Both the sender and receiver may rest assured that their parcels will be well-taken care of until they are released.
Why choose Victory Liner for cargo delivery to Bicol?
It’s a totally valid question. With other courier options for sending packages across Luzon, it’s easy to wonder what exactly sets Victory Liner’s Drop & Go service apart from them. But once you find out, choosing this cargo delivery service will practically be a no-brainer!
Their delivery fees are easy on the wallet
First, let’s start with what’s most likely on your mind: price. Victory Liner’s cargo delivery to Bicol is very budget-friendly, even compared with the fees of door-to-door courier services. Prices start as low as ₱150 for deliveries to Naga and ₱180 for packages headed to Legazpi; exact prices will vary depending on your destination, as well as the size and monetary value of your package. One thing’s for sure: Your money will go a long way by opting for cargo delivery to Bicol with Victory Liner — both literally and figuratively!
This service is perfect for both personal and business deliveries
Sending a package to a loved one? Sourcing materials for your online business? Delivering products to customers? Victory Liner’s got you covered! Their cargo delivery from Baguio to Bicol (and vice versa) is an ideal choice, whether you’re sending over a single item or handling a bulky delivery. (Ten orders of ube jam, please!)
Packages are always handled with care
Second, Victory Liner promises that your packages are always handled with utmost care — just as any sender would lovingly put together a package for a family member, or an online seller would wrap a parcel for a buyer. Basically, Victory Liner acts as an extension of the sender, making sure that the item being sent remains in good condition by the time it is picked up by the recipient.
Delivery is speedy
We get it — it’s always exciting to receive packages, especially when they’re from someone special. (Oh, and when they contain delicious goods, too!) With Victory Liner’s cargo padala collaboration with Bicol Isarog, you can expect your packages to make it to your chosen destination in just four to five days!
What’s more, the heritage company will continue to open up new routes to meet all our cargo delivery needs as the months pass. This August, they are set to launch their Tuguegarao and Masbate cargo routes, connecting the Cagayan Valley with Bicol! In the midst of the ongoing pandemic, we’re glad to know that companies like Victory Liner are still continuing to service their clients’ needs — whether or not they find themselves on board their buses.
Besides their terminal-to-terminal cargo service to Bicol and other areas around Luzon, Victory Liner has also come up with helpful solutions amid the quarantine. These include renting out buses to companies to help shuttle their employees to and from work and paving the way for safe and efficient public transportation within Zambales. We look forward to what more the bus line has in store for us, especially during these challenging times!
