Recommended Posts

Today Curef's IPS car arrived  posted from OZ on march 12.

And on top of everything else i was surprised to pay 11euros /parcel to UK instead of 6,50 before .

My package from Germany arrived today, it took 4 weeks, a bit slow, but given covid-19, and NZ post saying there is no service from Germany, I'm pretty happy. Gives me hope that my decals from Spain may yet turn up.

I am wanting some decals from Spain but decided to hold of on my order until things settled down.

Bit more confident about ordering from the UK and the US now that I was a month ago.

Armchair have a Scaley Camaro on special at the moment that I've not been able to find anywhere in NZ and so I've hit the go button on it today. It's only over the ditch so let's see how this goes.

Local couriers have also been under considerable pressure. This Revell Cortina I couriered to a customer last week came under considerable pressure too.

My qld to vic order took 8 days, so that's back to 'normal'.

From Bruce - which cars did you get :)

Well finally got notification that my parcel that was dispatched via USPS Priority Mail International on 28 March 2020 has finally arrived in Sydney on the 28 May 2020 and is awaiting clearance. A smidge over two months, certainly wouldn't call this Priority Mail... bloody China and their virus.

Woohoo!! Thanks Steve at Slot Car Corner.

Hey DM, for me i got two Porsche Carrera 6's, the black 62 Corvette, the yellow e-type and d124 basf bmw m1. Piggy backed onto my order my friend got a Porsche Carrera 6, white and red road 62 Corvette and the d124 Nurburgring bmw m1. I received from Qld last week via Mark at ozslotcars on eBay the blue 62 Corvette and wow it's fun at 14v, real proof you don't need huge power to enjoy your track time. Eventually I'll be able to race her against her stable mates.

Positive news from you Johnno, it's concerning to see so many orders taking longer than normal but still in what i would call 'reasonable' time, ie 1 month, yet mine is now at 10 weeks.

Your parcel could arrive any day. My parcel was redirected via sea freight, the same thing might be happening with your parcel.

It probably sat at the USPS air freight terminal for four to eight weeks before it got redirected by the lazy USPS.

Last package from Chico, California arrived last week after 4 weeks.

Two weeks to Auckland then another two weeks to me.

Had an order from Pendleslot sent on the 15th of May and arrived on the 30th. 

Also an order from Olifer posted on the 22nd of May and arrived on the 2nd of June. 

Hit for me and a miss for others it seems. Now let’s see how Munter’s come through.

Just received a parcel from California that was sent USPS about 7 weeks ago. According to the tracking, it was stuck in LA for about 6 of those weeks. Guess I am lucky it came at all considering the challenges at the moment.

79 days since the last tracking update and it has finally reached Sydney, what a relief! It's not the waiting, it's the uncertainty. I'm highly unlikely to be ordering or selling internationally until full resumption of air travel after this experience, so that's a win for the domestic market.

Hopefully things will get back to normal soon.   

I sent 2 airmail (letter sized) items to the UK on 27th  March and 1 has arrived .. on the 1st June. The other one is gone , somewhere ! As it was caught up in the first of the Covid 19 lockdowns we experienced at the start of April it seems it may be buried in a ton of other backlog post, hopefully to arrive soon. <_<

I am currently tracking a parcel I posted to SA on the 10th . Lets see how long it will take AustPost to get the item there.  Remembering that they are still under Covid 19 rules.

I placed an order for a scratchbuiilders jig from Michigan... it was picked up pretty pronto by USPost..... I have been tracking it... went well, until it got to the international dispatch area... and it's been stuck "in transit" since arriving there on 20 May.... may be here by Christmas.... this year....

Parcel from UK arrived in around 10 days this week.

I still have 3 parcels sent to Europe and US that will likely be 90 days.

I suspect we won't be sending much to the US after USPS doubled the shipping cost into USA which will mean AusPost NZPost will double prices to US.

My order from the states  arrived after 3 weeks the postage had increased by £6-45 when i ordered it, and i was quite pleased it got here as it had also passed through our B  customs who stuck another £17-50p on it for VAT and handling charge , ouch.

I was pleased to hear from a customer in the UK  who received a package yesterday (15June) that I sent on May 4.....is that six weeks?

 

It was a valuable one too so was pretty happy that it has arrived.

Waiting I can put up with, John... it's the uncertainty of "if" it will get here.... and like your UK package, this one is expensive too....
