I don't use HK very much, so not a lot of experience of how long things take. I ordered a pair of folding prop blades from the EU warehouse and was informed the order had shipped on 3rd June, 17 days ago. The carrier was stated as BPOST, which I think is Belgian Post? There's no tracking unfortunately and nothing has arrived.

Is 17+ days a normal delivery time from EU warehouse?

Thanks,

Tim.

That was not my experience, 4 days was more usual. However, my latest order from HK landed in UK on 3rd of June & seems to have disappeared. Perhaps the issue is with UK customs.

My recent small order took around 25 days to arrive. A week after I placed the first order, I ordered something else. Both orders arrived on the same day... In the past, orders have taken from a few days to nearly four weeks.

According to my Royal Mail driver son-in-law one of the effects of Covid-19 has been a huge increase in the volume of parcel mail with people shopping on line. He says the volume is at near Christmas levels and has been for a couple of months. Doubtless Europe is similar so expect delayed deliveries.

Within the UK at least, mail delivery vans, postal and inter depot delivery is being done by one person per van.

Where before there were 2 posties in a vehicle, there is just one, at least doubling the postal time on foot.

Since March, every single order to my own door, UK and overseas, has arrived ok
