    Well.... will wonders never cease. Arrived home this afternoon and there's a Canada Post vehicle pulling away from my street, and my package from the UK sitting beside the side door on my driveway ! And it never showed up on the tracking site.

    Hang in there folks, yours may suddenly appear out of thin air as well.

    We’ve been getting Sunday package delivery (not regular mail) for months now from Canada Post near Barrie...

    At this point I feel like one of those monkeys in the experiment where they pull the lever hoping for another... update from DHL, lol.

    No shit. I'm still waiting on Customs to get their head out of their ass and fix their paperwork fuck up. Still a hold on the box, for them charging too little hst. I'm agreeing with them, but sometimes you just can't fix stoopit.

    I ordered a set of Alpine MotoSafe earplugs from Alpine Hearing Protection in the Netherlands on May 25th. They just arrived today. Just over 6 weeks for Canada Post.

    On the flip side, I ordered something from Amazon Canada (camera accessory) on July 1 that was shipped from the manufacturer, Nisi, from China, via DHL. It arrived at my door July 6. Amazing. Shipping charge? $zero.

    It took 2 weeks for a piston and cylinder i had work done on from CT to NW ontario. Was shipped priority mail which is a 6-10 day delivery

    So with July 1 and 4 in the mix they met the target. $65USD for shipping is a bit steep though.

    I hate to say it but now only if i could get a rain day or 2 on my days off so i can get into the shop!

    CP has a history of not picking up the Track from overseas shippers
    I started using DHL International. Excellent Tracking History with them
    Amazon UK is good too, but you have to contact them to get the Canada Post Tracking

    My son ordered parts from Houston Texas and it only took 2.5 weeks to get to our door.
    USPS priority was pretty good but I think it comes down to reduced volumes vs 2 months ago.

    I'd agree, with shops opening back up again, there's a lot less amazoning going on.
