It does seem to be random (edit:well checking parcel value perhaps), did everyone get theirs via Swisspost or by another shipper?

Before you think its because its arriving at a EU courier, and then being delivered into the country.

HMRC can see the origin country of the parcel pretty easily. The courier bringing it in doesn't mean anything. It just depends if your parcel is checked for its value which should be declared on the parcel.

Ah thanks for clarifying, that makes sense. :)
 
I always get a friend in the US to add stuff onto his RightStuf orders for me, then he ships them to me himself. That way I get a package from his home address with a handwritten label marked as a gift, rather than a package from RightStuf inc.
 
It's Servant X Service. Trust it to get caught in the gears and cogs of post office bureacracy! This one got shipping confirmation on the 9th. I have two others that were apparently dispatched on the 15th. One is still at Elk Grove, destined for the USPS, while other was passed onto Swisspost and is apparently in transit.
 
Man mine's taking forever to arrive. I didn't expect it to move quick over the xmas stretch but now we are 10+ days into the new year I expect some movement. Seems like it left Switzerland and entered Germany, and then the Germans are just sitting on it, when I'd expect it to simply continue on.
 
Same here, second order is cleared by customs since January 4th, but customs is slow as snails here :) So for that second order i'll have customs fees to pay, which i actually calculated in when placing the order.

But what is worse is that my first order is actually lost. Now in communication with TRSI to fill in a claims form for Asendia as the package never got further than Elk Grove Village since December 16th.
Then it's just a case of a new shipment or refund.
 
The path there shipping takes sure is weird.

Starts in the US
Then to the Netherlands (I assume Nl is meant to be NL otherwise it was in Nicaragua :))
To Switzerland
To Germany

At what point should I assume I've been hit by customs or not I'm wondering?
 
I know Rightstuf is a legit and trustworthy company but they are messing me around something fierce.

I opened a support case about the missing parcel and after a few weeks I was told the replacements were prepping and would be sent shortly. A week later my case is closed with no word things have been sent. I've spent a few days trying to contact them about this and finally got a tracking number, except this number says what ever was sent is on it's way to Chile. They are making enquiries with Assendia, with any luck it's an error on the shipping companies end supplying a wrong tacking number. That or someone in Chile is now getting my order in addition to whomever now has the one that went missing in Germany . :mad:

I hate when that happens. My madman order went to someone in US. Just keep harassing them till they fix their issues.
