Response to Hannants order officially MIA.

a year from a London bookshop and a N of London hobby shop. ALL arrive within 5-10 days via cheapest 'fast' post. Never surface/slow boat. And it's been that way for many yrs. Zero lost. Zero damaged. Thank you Royal Mail and US Post! How much of that 5-10 days is spent sitting in US Customs, I don't know. Those UK pkgs are seldom sent via trackable post.

Have never ordered from Hannants tho.

My WNW pkgs from NZ usually get to LAX in 2-3 days (thank you NZ Post!) and they usually sit in LAX Customs, awaiting release, for 2-4 days. Never wks! Some of the four day waits may have been due to a weekend arrival. Does US Customs postal pkg inspection work Sat/Sun?

Pretty much the same story for many pkgs/yr sent by Japanese onlines, but those usually only spend 1-3 days going thru US Customs!

Just lucky I guess. Perhaps my name is on a list for quick, no hassle, spl service! I am a very nice guy after all!

My postman, for ten yrs, also hides pkgs, out of sight, behind the ft porch bench if he doesn't catch me at home. Not that he really has to. Little foot traffic out ft, no crime in the area, a sign on the ft gate to keep cold callers/salemen/church people away, etc.
