The package of sodium cleared russian customs in April 24 and still no update.


My order from Russia cleared customs 3 weeks before yours, also no further update.

I'm considering buying sodium metal from united nuclear, this is taking way too long.


With all of my spare time during Covid I have now made half of the things I ordered.

International Shipping


The DVD set from Canada arrived 3 days
ago. The ammonium dihydrogen phosphate
arrived from Portugal today. Still waiting on
an order from South Korea. Not too bad
considering all were ordered in mid-May and
delays resulting from COVID-19.

The package I shipped to Australia just arrived after only about 4 months... Apparently it looked like it was dropped out of a plane. Maybe that is how they quarantine mail coming from other countries, just drop the package from the plane, so no one on the ground is exposed to the air crew.

I have just received two packages from Chemcraft one order was placed 20 March and the other 20 April. Both were processed promptly then the shipping delays began.....
Both parcels look like they were dragged to Australia from Russia. Despite the external damages to the packaging the contents were extremely well packed and not one of the items had the least bit of damage.
I had totally given up on them so great that they finally showed up 4 and 5 months after the orders were placed.

My package from russia just arrived today.
No tracking information from the time it was in chicago (July 29th) until today.
It was ordered on july 16th.
Mailed July 17th.
12 days from russia wasn't bad.
20 days to get from chicago to colorado was horrible.
Mail is taking 3 times normal (at least).

Delays


Still waiting on a DVD from South Korea
and an electronic converter from China.
Nearly 4 months on the DVD. China has
had delays in everything but for the most
part within reason. I'm in no hurry.

Within the continental USA, and Canada... Deliveries go pretty well. Mail has been delayed a few days, but it ain't bad. Shipments from distant lands, are a different story. Not reliable.

I ordered a small electronics device from China, two or three months ago. Still no delivery. I have little hope that I will ever get it. Ebay seems to be allowing perpetual extensions. Should have been here in a few weeks, now it has been several months, and I still can't file a claim.

Though I have the impression.... express mail still gets through. Hope so. I inadvertently ordered some glasses from what I thought was a local firm. Turns out supply is via China. I will keep you posted.

No problems here. I ordered some Petri dishes from China 15 days ago and they arrived today in the UK. Only plastic 90mm but 10 for £3.



i am wg48 but not on my usual pc hence the temp handle.

Thank goodness for Fleming and the fungi.

Mood: Awaiting a package since 5 months

[*] posted on 4-9-2020 at 06:54


Still waiting for my package from Laborhandel-Krumpholz. It's been exactly 5 months now. Can't get qualitative glassware from any other place for such prices, though, and it seems to be quite a legit shop, many people ordered from him, but then lots of people started getting their packages later and later, and now some people even report getting their package after 1 year of waiting. It's not the shipping, though, it's in the processing state since all the time.

Eh, don't worry, Krumpholz is twice to 3x as expensive as china and usually takes 3-4x as long to deliver.
I don't get why you haven't simply ordered from deschem.

Have you paid by bill or bank transfer beforehand? The latter "speeds" the whole process up to 1-2 months.
I would never recommend to order there again.
And believe me, I'm a lot longer in the hobby chemistry business as you in our country, when times were different and you could get almost whatever you wanted here.
Even thionyl chloride was no issue back then, from INSIDE the country :D

Deschem --> Netherlands in 10 days!

It might not be the best quality, but for Deschem prices I'm fine buying it twice.

Edit: and the Chinese government sponsoring the shipping also helps... a 7 euro piece of glassware with free shipping. It is ridiculous.
