CP isn't directly the problem. The problem is they contract out parcel delivery to the lowest bidder, and those companies have basically zero accountability.

My comment was in response to Submachinehead's situation. who's problem was more than likely do to an incompetent Canada Post Employee ie delivered it to the wrong address and someone accepted the package or it was scanned as delivered on the truck but never really left the truck lol or whatever the case may be.

But you're right...Canada Post is not really the problem with the original situation here. The problems likely occurred prior to the package arriving in the hands of CP.

What did you order? There's a chance you could have ordered something restricted and instead of burning it the decided to return to sender.

Ehobby will give you a complete refund.

I had the same thing happen with a package from uncompany a few years ago. Followed the status until it said it was out for delivery but never showed up. Later that day it was marked refused at the door and sent back to HK. I know I didn't refuse it because I was the only one home. I called them and they said there was nothing they could do as it was already on it's way back to HK. When I had uncompany reship it (at my cost) I had them print out my address so it took up an entire 8x11 sheet of paper and tape it to the front of the box. it showed up a week later with the huge address page on it.

I ordered some mags from Ehobby and got them within 6 days. That being said, it was a good thing I was at home at the time because CP just knocked on my door and left the package on the ground. I opened the door and saw the postal worker walking towards his van. He didn't even bother to verify if anyone was home or not, just left the package in front of the door. If I wasn't home, someone could have just come by and grabbed it.

I've had many of the problems here happen to me as well. Packages left outside on the ground. Tracking says out for delivery, no one shows up, package marked for pickup, post office losses package even though their own computer tells them they have it.

I'm so tired of the delivery guy not even trying to make the delivery or even leaving a notice. Twice this winter I received my package only because the post guy got his shitty little post van stuck in the snow out front of my house trying to leave without even making a reasonable effort to knock on my door, and twice I got out of bed ran down and pushed him out. My dumb ass should have just grabbed the package and left him there. :banghead:

haha that's actually kinda funny. If it helps any, I'm betting even a douche like that would feel stupid after treating a customer like crap and then accepting help from him later on.

A money order of mine was lost for about 10 or so weeks last year.

Every time I think of it, that G-Mod video on youtube plays in my head. The one where they stick a rocket to the horse statue's ass and it takes off into the sky on a random course and then sets into a redundant oval flightpath.

I dont think I ordered anything restricted because it had cleared the customs.... But if it could help you, I ordered a G&P crane stock (+9.6v battery) , a G&P assembly switch and a magpul PTS pistol grip.....

If ever I missed a package, it would be held at a post office for pickup for like 1 week and a notice will be posted by the CP guy noting a failed delivery on my door though usually they're just too lazy to even knock on the door and just post the damn notice or leave the package with out a signature, even if requested (now if only they did that with stuff needing COD, I'd be happier). I'm finding it weird even for CP to have totally bypassed that step. With your case, I'm not sure if a delivery issue needs to be raised from either you as the receiver or by EHobby as the shipper, you'll have to contact Post about that. Sorry to hear about these troubles man, I know some of your pain. I also bought off EHobby a few days before Christmas and paid extra for Xpress shipping. Didn't get my package in for just over a month, about a week after I emailed EHobby to raise start an issue case on my package. Wasn't anything big or restrictive either (G36 hand guard, some BBs, and a battery).
