long shipping times

Postby jswag5 » Thu Sep 16, 2010 1:21 pm



i ordered myself a water pump rebuild kit from germany about 2 weeks ago and am still waiting for its arrival, has anyone else ordered anything from outside the states lately that is taking forever to arrive, and if so about how long did it take.

the only reason i ordered from germany is because the kit contains all the parts needed for a water pump rebuild and i figured paying shipping for one item would be cheaper that paying shipping for several smaller items.
if i knew it would take this long i probably would have went ahead and bought individual parts and paid extra shipping.

I've ordered stuff from Europe, and have also sent things to Europe. It really seems hit-or-miss. I've had a box sent priority to England that took 3 weeks to get there. Spain and Italy are TERRIBLE, I have had items take literally months to be delivered. I can't say for Germany, I haven't sent or received anything from that country.
