Re: JediDrew problem
My permanent addy is in California, my residence is in Edmonton Canada now -
Shipping is a roller coaster - sometimes takes me 4 days to get 4 boxs at 75lbs a pop, sometimes take me 4 weeks to get a stick of ram.
The main problem I tend to run into is customs - IN LARGE TYPE ON MOST ALL SHIPPING DOCUMENTS, IT SAYS IN VERY CLEAR, LARGE TYPE: Customs inspections may incure 10-14 days inspection times.
Obviously that is overkill to protect their butts - but, as its clearly stated - they have the right to hump your packages for 10-14 days before its "cleared".
And I can get "tracking" on most anything to anywhere for budget pricing - the kicker is its only good with-in your borders, lol. I mean if I pay 30cents to track memory being shipped post - it only gives me all the pertinent info up until it reaches the border. Again - obviously you can pay more for it to "go the distance".
IMO - the post drags its feet. If your not in a hurry and want to save pennies and all parties are in aggreement - it really is a good system.
Fed-Ex is cool - tends to be a lot more for me here, but definitly one of those "Get what ya pay for" shippers.
UPS is frightening. Using UPS is like winning 3 dollars on a 5 dollar bet. You always feel like you got cheated somewhere.
