yuuki_mafc (1 mês atrás) #24736651I wanted to be humorous to suggest to buy it again and if the first shipment comes, hang on to it until the 2nd one arrives and then sell it for profit lol

Haha. I will probably wait for another month or two, if it still doesn't come by then, maybe I will decide whether I should buy it again. If possible I don't want to have two of the same stuff XD.

BloodyEarth (1 mês atrás) #24724441Proxy refunded me. So far there's no word from Japan Post yet. Don't know whether I should just buy it again or just wait and see whether it will arrive or not. This is hard..

yuuki_mafc (1 mês atrás) #24714568Wow congrats, how were you refunded? Through EMS? or Retailer?

BloodyEarth (1 mês atrás) #24697680Omg, they just refunded me full amount even though I declared undervalue on all of my stuff in that EMS parcel.

yuuki_mafc (1 mês atrás) #24673765Yeah I don't undervalue my stuff, I know the insurance will only refund the declared value so I'd rather take a hit on shipping then lose the goods entirely along with the initial investment...I mean these figures are not cheap, I can't take any risks with'em :|
Looking forward to hearing the good news soon mate

Okeno (1 mês atrás) #24688409I've never had EMS packages "lost in transit" and show up on my door. But I have had two registered packages take 4 months or so and finally show up. It happened this fall.
Maybe it's being misplaced as SAL? I've heard EMS parcel being misplaced as SAL when I was googling. Maybe that's the case. The least I can do right now is to stay positive ~"~

chosokabe_senshu (1 mês atrás) #24621728So far, I havent got any problems with my parcel, aaaaand also hopefully, this wont happen to me. Btw, I'm from Brantford, Ontario.BloodyEarth (1 mês atrás) #24671653Thanks to all the replies. I apologize for not being able to get back to you all each by each due to still mourning over my maybe-lost-parcel but I really do appreciate all the replies. I hope mine turns up at my door soon. Will update if my parcel has any updates.
As for refund, unfortunately, I declared undervalue, therefore, I could only be refunded by the declared value. I guess this is the setback for undervalue, never thought my parcel could go AWOL one day.

I once had my package stuck in customs for a month and a half. Turns out the officers lost the papers I sent them, and instead of calling me, they decided to do absolutely nothing. I waited patiently, but snapped when no updates appeared for a month. After weeks of calling, or rather trying to get through to their "customer service" line, I managed to find out the truth, sent them the papers (again) and get the package within a couple of days. It was an extremely frustrating experience.

Anything that me or my father buy from asia takes forever to arrive (most was 6-7 months). Often, we even forget that we bought it in the first place.

Man, I'm sorry you lost your grail, because Canada Post. It make you think if it's really worth importing stuff at this point.

I've had that happen twice actually, packages that were declared lost and refunded magically appeared months later...I hope yours will too :( it sucks losing out on a grail.

Two International ebay sales arrived France & Spain just before postal strike & 1 new freight forwarder reassign coupled with revised lower limit for Spain's VAT. The $600 French sale went EMS and was stored until end of strike period whereupon it was labeled "undeliverable" and returned to me. France postal didn't even bother informing buyer of package. I emailed buyer re return whereupon he said "didn't know", "please forward" which I did at no charge to him as I had profited well on that sale. Goodbye another $60 shipping it back; crossed the ocean 3 times.

The $500 Spain sale was USPS Priority Mail Int'l. Upon arrival at Customs it sat in storage 5 months somewhere near the inbound airport that receives customs declaration goods. Customs aka Spain opted for a new contractor to forward in- / outbound overseas freight about the time the postal strike ended. Buyer tried to contact Customs but no one knew anything. Seven weeks after tracking said "yeah, still in Barcelona somewhere" I refunded buyer his $500 and waited the requisite xyz days before filing my claim with USPS. Thirty days beyond that USPS sent me a reimbursement check for the $500 + shipping expense. No recall of item anywhere, no one knew where it was. Oh, well. Six weeks later the item reappears in my mailbox. Hadn't been tampered with, no visible signs of overt damage on the package, but labeled as undeliverable even though label was intact and cipherable. ????

Best snafu to date was a lost packet containing 2 35mm color slides of long gone CMStP&P Little Joe electric action shots taken circa 1973 that I had won on ebay. Tracking showed picked up by postal at origin but never made it to local Post Office. I got reimbursed $375, seller got reimbursed same from USPS 30 days later. Five weeks short of 2 years later a plain manila packet appears in my mailbox: no explanations, no apology. It's the 2 slides. All I say is wtf USPS? Glad to get 'em, I guess.

I have good luck when items go to Canada. USPS 1st Class Package to Ontario usually averages 2-4 weeks. Strangely, EMS takes almost as long arriving in Canada as Russian Federation (2 weeks is the norm).

I live in B.C here. My sister had a package coming from East Asia, took Canada Post 7 months to deliver it to our home. It was standard shipping.

yuuki_mafc (1 mês atrás) #24621502Hello Fellow Canadian,
Sorry to hear the unfortunate news...I cringed thinking that it might happen to me too. I live in Mississauga, Ontario and I had pre-ordered a grail myself coming in later this year. I currently have about 3 different EMS packages and 1 SAL package in transit and I do expect them to reach me in a timely manner.
If you can get some sort of monetary compensation via refund/insurance claim do it while you can, there is a cut off time for claims via insurance. You might even luck out and the package reach you at a later date so it'll be a huge win for you.
I'd be interested in hearing a follow up on the situation. Sorry if I'm not quite the answer you were looking for. But all the best anyway

In Mississauga as well, been waiting about 2 months for two of my Sal packages now :( pretty much have given up on it
