Are you referring to shipping from the UK to the US? I've been buying stuff there all month, and it takes about three weeks to get here posted Royal Mail...

I've shipped over many things form US to olland, it totally depeneds on shipper and type of shipment. Sometimes I ordered things on saturday and Thuesday it arrived, that is really fast. And sometimes I had to wait for about 4 -6 weeks.
I have good experience with USPS, it's not expensive and fast.

If the package is shipped USPS Priority Global, it will generally take 4-7 days for most packages, regardless of size.

The package I sent Jez was, how shall we put it...at no expense to him, so was shipped at the parcel rate to save a bit more cash. Who'd of thunk it would take almost 2 months :shock:

Just glad Jez's Trimble did not decompose while waiting for the proper steerer! :lol:

cheers,

rody
