Update: All of the above information that I posted was relayed to Canada Post via their toll free number, they created a SERVICE TICKET number and said that they will be retrieving the package FROM their Mississauga warehouse AGAIN and will attempt to deliver by 6 pm today.... lets see how this one pans out... Posties stutter when caught in their own BS....

They really need to get their shit together.
It says that some times, the people delivering it might have forgotten to scan it. But customs check take long periods of time depending on whats in it. I've had a box of mags and random parts sit in customs for 2 months...

Is the Vancouver Customs office generally slower than Mississauga? I have a package sitting in there for well over a week now witch is strange considering I have NEVER had a package route through Vancouver. Not panicking just curious is all.

No, usually when you order something from the other side of the country and it lands in Vancouver, they don't bother to scan it when they load it on the train.

I notice packages from mainland China or Macau end up in Vancouver first, although it may say it is being reviewed by customs, chances are that it is already en route to you as they don't usually state that they release it.

Thankfully people have made this thread to satisfy our unique venting needs.

I've been in a constant battle to get my parcels delivered (Of which there seems to be a lot in the last few months with Christmas and online purchases).

Fort McMurray is cold. I get this. Ice and snow can be dangerous. This I also understand. What I fail to comprehend is the inability for Canada Post to find my address and delivery my parcel under the following conditions:
  • Cleared and salted my walkway.
  • Addressed all my packages to the correct basement suite designation used to successfully deliver my mail countless times before - "B" and as an extra step "Rear Entrance" listed every time.
  • House number clearly visible
  • Someone is home at ALL times
  • The upstairs tenant is home near all the time (Pregnant) and knows where I live.
  • Purolator (Canada Post owned as I understand it), DHL, and Greyhound do all right.
Have I ever received a DNC (Delivery Notification)? No sir, I have not. It comes in the mail at sporadic intervals. My local Mac-store outlet does not allow me to pick it up without this, as they are incompetent despite Canada Post assuring me I may do this. I have resorted to phoning for DNC numbers and this seems to work most of the time.

Well I decided to take matters in my own hands and ship a package to myself with VERY clear instructions on how that little brown box will make it to my door. Such things as “Rear Entrance” and little helpful things like a map and a step by step guide to get to my house were put on the package. Lots of highlighter green was used. Arrows, oh were there arrows…

I thought it was fairly clever but I failed to realize that the box was the exact same size as the parcel box in my mailbox thing (CMU?). I face palmed pretty hardcore when I opened that door up and saw it sitting quite snug in there. Took a lot of work to get it out unfortunately. Well played Canada Post, well played.

Oh well, I’ve got a complaint in to them and I hope I never have to find a package requiring a signature left on my neighbors porch again or else I might waste a large amount of money on a HUGE box that they cannot possibly fit inside that CMU.

Hope you enjoyed my read as much as I enjoyed getting paid hourly to write it.

Wow, I've seen something Absolutely weird with Can post !
So, I accept a trade for a gun with someone......
He sends his gun to me, I do the same.
Now, I actually am a tracking freak, I check like every hour !
Now, my gun is supposed to get to him on the 24th, good !
But, as I check, I see this on the tracking details :

2011/02/23 AM SAINTE-MARIE Attempted delivery. Notice card left indicating where item can be picked up.
06:59 SAINTE-MARIE Item out for delivery
2011/02/22 19:05 QUEBEC Item processed at postal facility
14:54 SAINTE-MARIE Item accepted at the Post Office

As you see, my package went from Ste-Marie, to Quebec city, back to ste-marie, then, today, to me !
What The fuck, Canada Post ??? Really ?
So I sent I don't know how many excuses to my trader, like, I knew Canada post was shitty, but not like that !
O_O, I'll be going to bed angry now !!
