My last eHobby package came yesterday, ordered on the 25th, a big crate-o-mags, not a hitch.

Okay, so I contacted Canada Customs for my package that has been sitting in Mississauga since March 1 (and I paid a crapload of money for expedited shipping!!!!). Turns out that Canada Post receives their packages, and hold them IN CASE customs decides they want to review them. In other words, Canada Post keeps your package in a warehouse to be processed by THEIR customs broker... NOT the CBSA. (Unless the CP broker flags it as restricted materials or something).

In other words, it's not Canada Customs holding the package, it's effin' Canada Post. (And I called, but of course, they're not open yet).

Someone is going to reimburse me for the extra shipping. (grumble grumble)

I don't have anything but good things to say about my local mailman, he always delivers the packages when they arrive. My beef with CP is God Damn Dieppe, New Brunswick!

As you can see from my location, I live in Newfoundland. Every time I have something shipped to me, it travels clear across the country in two or three days then spends upwards of two weeks sitting in God Damn Dieppe, New Brunswick. I'd like to bomb that place off the face of the earth. I could drive there and back a dozen times over in the amount of time my packages end up sitting there.

I do agree that Canada Post can be lacking, but its the cheaper option compared to others. Delivery wise I used to have a shitty contractor, typical being at home all day, not even a door knock, then I get the tag saying undeliverable because I wasn't home.

The worst I've had was picking up a parcel from the post office (because apparently i wasn't home) then 4 weeks later while expecting a different package, getting a notification of failed delivery. I go to the post office, and guy tells me the package has already been picked up, by me. For some Godforsaken reason I got a notice 4 weeks after the first package was delivered. Stupid.

Contractor now is good, he said he came 3 times to my house, once in the morning, once in the afternoon, and one last time before heading back to the post office to drop off the package. I gave him a firm handshake and some coffee for his efforts.


Also, theres quite a bit of Canada post rant threads around, is it possible to merge them all together?

damn. I got home yesterday and open my mail. They dump a book of my buddy inside there, it got stuck inside and it took me almost an hour to took it out. They just can leave a delivery notice card then I will pick it up,. that would a wise way to do than dump those package inside that tiny box. Next time, maybe they dump my PMAG inside there as well which is 10 of them.


The old mail man used to be good but not a new one. The old one, he actually came to my apartment to confirm my COD which I wrote not clear and also even the seller put the wrong address, he still deliver to me since he usually come to my apartment 2 or 3 time per week so my name is in his head already.

Unbelievable. I called Canada Post, who basically said... "Sorry, we can't do anything, call the guy in Hong Kong to send it to you again".

To which I responded... "WTF are you TALKING about???! So even if I manage to get someone to initiate a trace on the package, it's already in Canada... they're not going to resend a new box (of over $200 of merchandise) because Canada Post f@cked up. Get real."

"Sorry, sir-- but they actually paid for the shipping, even though you gave them the money for it, but we can't do anything for YOU. They can file a claim with their local post office, be reimbursed the cash and reship you the item if you so desire."

"So if they've already got my money, what's to stop them from saying 'GFYS' and not bothering to reship?"

"Uh..."

"Exactly."

OH MY GOD Canada Post are morons. I don't know when the term "going postal" meant to go nuts, and go on a killing spree... that would actually mean someone made a physical effort to do something. "Going Postal" should mean "falling asleep on the job" or something more appropriate.

Please note: this is NOT a rant against Ehobby Asia... they received my money and shipped the same day. Had Canada Post done their job correctly, I'd already be rocking my new gear.

/rant.

Well, hopefully you sort the whole deal out, keep good communication with the company. If need be, open a dispute if you paid with paypal, if the time is comming close to the 45 day dispute limit, open a dispute anyways and let them know that you opening a dispute to protect yourself and that you still have faith that they will ship the new items once they have sorted out the issues with their postal office on their side.

My parts have been sitting in mississauga since the 4th, including my metal slide. I hope I get it soon, I would have loved to do my upgrades over the weekend. I really hate customs. Canada post is alright to me most of the time.

I've had a parcel left at my front door, and another one again left at the front door but this one required signature!?!?!? and also one left in my backyard with the gate hanging open. AWESOME! CP rules, I have a new postlady now, seems good thus far.

I must have missed a post here, but why would CP holding it for reiew from their brokerage folks cause a re-send?

My package had international tracking that switched over to Canada Post once it was in Canada, cleared customs and ended up in Ottawa (where I live) but was never sent out for delivery. That was on February 5th, I then contacted the seller and asked them to inquire to Canada Post about the whereabouts of my package. Tuesday (10th of March) I got a letter from CP asking if I had received the package in question or if it had been returned to sender. I check both no boxes and sent it to Canada Post.

Waiting to hear back from them, apparently they are going to investigate/look into it?

Sorry dude, last thime they said that, it just meant "we don't really give a fuck and are trying to delay this as long as possible"
They refused to do anything when the parcel arrived 10 buisness days later than what the tracking number said, even though I paid for priority. That 12 actuall days was enough for the compressed spring in that G&P box I ordered to bend every metal component in it.
