Worldwide shipping.....what's happening, not much?

Recommended Posts

I had a US Postal service 20lb Medium box turn up from USA today. Roughly 7 weeks transit instead of 2-3

Glad it is here....

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.

and it arrived today so I'm happy. OK so I had to give them a bit more dosh to have it sent by Express which meant it came by air but the regular price would have meant it came by sea.

Seems like Corona has pretty much turned the clock back half a century+.

Yep. It was well boxed too.

Ok folk, update.... my package from Michigan, US arrived today 23rd June.

It arrived at Australia Post on 9th June.... it is AP which held the package up in my instance.

I have my scratchbuilder's jig and also the wire bender, plus three sets of wheel blocks and also three different sized replacement pins.

Pretty happy - just glad it got here.

frats,

Rosco

 Now let’s see how Munter’s come through. 

Sending and receiving seems to be happening for me although mostly delivery times are twice what they were pre covid.....although NZ to Aus to NZ seems to be improving slightly.

 

I have received a body kit purchased from ebay UK on 13April, it arrived 20th June.....I had sort of given up on it so I am happy but....

....a mini drill press I purchased on 17th January has not arrived.....must have been on the ghost ship that sank.

I just had one a bit slower than average - 17 days to NSW from NZ. Still variable to Oz.

Then again, I just had 8 days by Fedex from Spain, whereas I had 14 days to arrival last week from France also by Fedex with completely different routing through Europe, and one went HK, and went Singapore. The Singapore one was the faster at 8 days, despite one courier agency here telling me to avoid Singapore routing if possible as there is a huge backlog there......
Both cases ended up passing through Oz, one through NSW, one through Victoria

Well, surprise, surprise.. my parcel from Carrera arrived 40 minutes ago. Got to say that is damn fast and so much better than what happened with the Slotcar Corner parcel, which eventually arrived (that was not Slotcar Corner's fault, it was the USPS at fault there)

So June 22 posted to completed delivery July 07 a total of ten days, absolutely wow

Well done USPS about time you got your act together, I wonder if that would have anything to do with Insurance Claims lodged against them for non-delivery and not supplying the services to which they have charged for, I know I claimed against them and got my freight charges reimbursed 100%, hopefully lessons learnt at the USPS
