Did they say how long they are suspended for?

I ordered something from Masterton on Monday evening, it was shipped on Tuesday via NZ Couriers and arrived today (Wednesday) in Whanganui.

 

All good in the lower North Island, is this actually an Auckland problem?

Auckland has been okay for the last few weeks, and even longer with other carriers like NZ Couriers

 

It's just the very odd item I am finding gets held up a bit at east tamaki, some come very quickly and others will sit for an extra week and come when another item is sent

 

 

 

International is another story. Still have items waiting for cargo space since Feb/March

I feel your pain!

 

Anyone had any experience submitting a lost item thing via eBay? It's starting to look like I'll go down that road - or do I just do a chargeback via my bank?

On the 15th May I ordered new spectacle lens from SpecSavers. I was told that it would take 3 to 5 weeks for them to be made and come from Melbourne. This was due entirely, according to SpecSavers, to the couriers on both sides of the Tasman. Previously, 2 years ago, it only took approximately 2 weeks. We are coming upto 4 weeks this coming Monday.

 

Jez I miss my transition lens. 😎

Had an order from Computer Lounge (Auckland) picked up from them by Courier Post last Friday morning, and delivered to my hand in Wellington at 6pm on Saturday. (Tracking said it had been with the courier since 10am, so it was a reasonably long shift for the driver.). I didn't ask for or pay for Saturday delivery either, so it was a nice surprise!

Last month my young daughter had a delivery take 11 days to get from Auckland to Wellington, with NZ Couriers. She was getting very anxious!

My wife had stuff from Aus delivered during level 4 - their lockdown was a little more relaxed than ours!

@xpd - I ordered some bike parts on 29 May, using Aus Post "Standard International Service" started in Sydney 1 June, arrived Auckland 10 June, and delivered in Taranaki on 11 June.

 

I must be one of the lucky ones.

Cleared and awaiting international departure

 

Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

 

 

 

Come on FFS..... almost a month for a plane to taxi down a runway.....  funny thing is, could probably re-order the items and they'll arrive here within days.

Not Courier Post (obviously), but I have a laser that has been stuck in Moscow since 30/4/20. The vendor (Endurance Lasers) kindly sent me another, this time shipped via DHL. That one got to Sydney in a couple of days, and has been stuck there a couple of days, awaiting Customs clearance. Dunno what that is about... awaiting an explanation from DHL.

 

And a PandaPi PCB that stuck in The Netherlands for about 2 weeks, but is now on the way to NZ. :)

OMFG!!!!

 

Your delivery has landed
Arrived in New Zealand
 In transit
   (removed)
Sent with Tracked Airmail under 2kg
Once it’s cleared customs (if required), it’ll be on board with the local carrier.

 

 

 

Question is.... wtf did I order :D
