Shipping anything from the US is a crapshoot right now.So. ECU shipped there fine, one day turn around and now it's been stuck in US customs in Florida since march 21st. The tuner says we'll give it until the end of this week and if no update/movement he'll open a case. Fuuuuuuck!!! If I didn't have my drz I'd be losing my shit. I am glad I opted to pay for insured return shipping but like any insurance I'd hoped to never have to use it.
I bought a part for my tablesaw from a US vendor on December 26th. I finally received that part yesterday, after buying it for the FOURTH time from a FOURTH vendor. All 3 previous shipments got fucked up in one way or another. One of them got stuck in "return to customer" stage for 4 weeks, and no one could tell either me or the vendor a thing about it.
Strap in and wait - all you can really do. Trying to get your money through insurance may be a nightmare in and of itself, so be ready for that. Some of our local shipping companies only insure brand new items, for which you have receipts. Granted, they'll sell you insurance for anything and everything, but won't actually pay out unless it's new and you have the receipt. A racket, really. Hope it's better on the US side.
