They can hold them for a couple of days at times. Usually, it takes longer if the sender declares it as a gift or understates the value. Then they research the items for their actual value so they can levy the correct customs fees on it. And with how CP works, there's a good chance you'll have the parts in your hands before the CP site gets updated.
just as I read this, i refreshed my cp page and it shows that it's been delivered! woot woot, fresh wood for me k

Yea I was extremely impressed by their speed and service in general, not a single missing item even tho it was all sent out the day after I paid, and I ordered over 25 items!!

Yea I think as long as you're truthful, for the most part, about what is coming in the customs people will be a lot easier on you.

Well I figure I'd post my own Customs problem. I ordered a digital camera from a store down in the States. The tracking number states "Into Foreign Customs, May 23, 2008, 8:34 am, CANADA" and "Your item is being processed by customs in CANADA". That is the last I've heard about my camera....

Damnit Customs its a CAMERA not a fake grenade or mags, move it along!

Double check the canadapost website. Sometimes they stop tracking at that point on the US side. The cdn side might give more details. That was my experience, hope it helps!

Do you mean input the american tracking number into Canada Post? I didn't even know you could do that.

Well it arrived at VILLE ST-LAURENT, QC for review by customs on the 23rd (no offense but you french are slow :-P) and was released yesterday for processing by Canada Post. Means it should be here Monday.

I guess I cant complain too much, my aunt had her entire order of her store's inventory delayed at the border for 2 months before they let it through!

Customs through the Quebec side depot is notorious to be about 1 week to 1 month slower than the rest of Canada.

try walking through airport customs with a complete mech box!!!

So i buy a CA Sportsline m4 from Las Vegas, leave the plastic body, strip the rest and pack it in my luggage (totally legal)

But wait! I forgot something! LOL...:

wow, i couldnt believe my dumb ass forgot to pack it in my luggage...sure enough its on my carry on. I noticed quickly, pulled it out and put it in the tray.
No sooner did it go in the X-Ray (and I shat a brick) the alarm went off and I got rushed by 4 security guards.

So they took me aside, threatening some nasty stuff... I pleaded my case saying its just a gearbox, it CANT do anythign at all, it just looks a bit suspect due to the trigger. It can not even work without a battery..etc.

sure enough, they get the airport police over (im like 20 minutes late for my flight now lol) Cop takes one look at it, tells the security guys they did a good job and this is just airsoft and totally legal to transport...looks at me has a smirk on his face and tells me to get on my way...

I was so happy to have a knowledgeable officer, man after that i felt 20 lbs lighter...seems i shat a brick.

blast, im looking for the pics...cant find em, will post when i can...
My asshole buddies took like 10 pics of me dealing with a swarm of security guards and that oh so nice officer...

what a day.

You can do it with any tracking numbers. For example when ordering from Asia you can put China EMS or Hong Kong Post tracking numbers into Canada Post tracking and it'll work. The to and from country both track it.
