Well, looks like the courier lost my slide topper or it was never shipped. After I put in a request for a refund, the seller finally got off his ass and opened a case with eShipper. Not long after, he issued a refund.

I've been having the worst luck lately with getting stuff delivered at all. I'd order it in the US and have it delivered to MyUSAddress to go pick it up there but they just announced that vaccinated Canadians can return to Canada without isolating or the the Covid hotel starting only on Aug. 9 but the US hasn't said they'd allow Canadians in. Until I hear something, I'll wait and see.

Well, look what just showed up...

So I have been refunded and it now arrives. What do I do now? This is almost $600. It's obviously a screw up by the shipping company but it was late with crap tracking that even the seller couldn't find it. Legally, they can't do anything, but morally? I'll wait and see if he contacts me and see what he says. At that point, I think I'll ask they discount it to their cost and without shipping cost as they can get that back from the shipper.

Ordered a compressor for the Escalade, and going to arrive at my house on tuesday. Arrange to have the dealer do the install, so they can also do a PCM/ECM/TCM update.

Go and look at my order, shows arriving Saturday.

Sometimes I really hate Amazon. Seems like everytime I order something, it gets screwed up somehow..

Ordered an extension cord JUNE 4. It was lost in transit. Amazon sent another one. But the lost one showed up yesterday (that makes 73 days LATE). And to add insult to injury Amazon website says return period already expired! I can use it so I probably will keep it, but as of yet the billing hasn't hit the credit card.

Let them know, they may issue you a credit.

I hate UPS. I had a cluster for my Caprice sent from the US (no choice, none here). Since I still can't drive down across the border to pick it up at my PO box (that's a whole 'nother rant), I had it shipped direct. The cluster cost $100USD. Apart from charging $38USD for shipping from Michigan, at delivery, I also get held up at card scanner point by brown for another $58CAD for taxes ($20) and their brokerage fee ($38) for printing a piece of paper. They all charge a fee and they have no choice for taxes, but UPS is by far the most expensive. USPS/Canada Post charge only $5 + the taxes if any. A lot of times, they let stuff like this go tax free.

Next time I'll insist on USPS even if they aren't the fastest or cheapest. UPS may be the best domestically but they're a bunch of thieves internationally.

If you ever have a package come from overseas and you see it's in ICS Chicago...good luck.

That's USPS customs and is a black hole. Turnaround should be 24-48 hours. My Uncle sent me a legal size envelope and it was there for 14 days. I've seen posts where peoples things have been there for a month or more.

Using a tip I saw posted numerous times, I started a Lost Mail investigation and 4 hours after lodging the request, my envelope moved out of there and less than a day later is in Cleveland.

If you want to get pissed off, Google ICS Chicago South Building and read the reviews.

So my package that is stuck in Memphis... Well its an empty box, and was flagged by FedEx for OS&D (overage, shortage and damage). They dont bother to call anyone, they expect the shipper or receiver to do make the call to find out whats going on.

FedEx Express Expected DEL date: 6/8/2022
Updated Expected DEL date: Unknown

So my Saab continues to sit in the street because I cant get the parts to fix it..
Should have just ordered the eBay no warranty kit.

I've been pretty fortunate, to be home when anything fragile was gonna be delivered. I leave the garage door open, as a sign not to act like nobody's watching. :popo:

It has gotten to the point now that when something is shipped Fed Ex we have to watch all the neighbor's porches for our packages. Several times in the past two years we've had items land anywhere but at our house and no other carrier does this.

Yep, have had Fedex drop off packages at the right address, wrong street but have had other good experiences with them. Usually the same guy and he's OK. I think it's the temps that are jackwagons. Also had drop offs by Amazon at the wrong street. After a couple of lost packages, I think they finally flagged us to ensure they go to the right place.
