I know how you feel. But u should have paid for overnite service to guarantee proper arrival time. Ground shipping sucks from them.

I received a package that came from Virginia via priority mail and it took only 2 days! Not bad for all the way across the US!
Depends on the speed you select.

My last package sent usps took 2 weeks to go from fla. to ga., watched it with tracking go to atlanta then memphis then atlanta then memphis then fla. with attempted delivery in fla. then to here.

And it had the correct adress on the box.

Nobody can beat the price and efficiency of USPS first class mail. You can send a little package across the country for about $1.30 in 3 days. Try that with UPS or FedEX.

USPS
The safest way sending a package is through USPS and a few bucks more add a confirmation tracking. Confirmed package gets handled with extra care and gets scanned separately from the rest which can get tracked... I've been to a lot of Postal Distribution centers and they keep the confirmed package on a locked area which only authorized mail handlers can access.

Cheaper than FedEx or UPS for sure!

The further your destination for shipment is from the origin within the US, the faster Priority Mail becomes because after a certain distance they have to put it on a plane. Try ordering something from CA when you live in VA like I do. It'll arrive in two days. Effectively it's like Blue Label. FEDEX and UPS have nothing for the money that will touch what you can ship at that speed for $4.95 .

DR.Ben
when i order from amainhobbies.com it alway`s takes a week from cali to michigan.
when i order from cncheli.com which is also in cali, i get it two day`s.
they both ship usps.
i do agree with the distance and plane comment though.
i wonder if cncheli.com pay`s alittle more for shipping than amainhobbies.com does, this could explain the difference in arrival time`s.
when i first started ordering from helidirect.com out of boston, i would get my part`s in three day`s. after the 4th order they all have been comeing in about 6 day`s.
i wonder once you have ordered from some of these companies a few time`s they no longer treat you as a valued NEW customer?

I agree with Dr.Ben, I ordered a trk from California and some wheels and tires from the east coast, I still waiting for the trk while the wheels and tires got here 2 days ago; AND I order the trk before the tires! Also holidays and weather affects too. And not to mention when you buy from some one and have to cross your fingers and hope that they send it in a timely manner and don't be driving around with the stuff you paid for in the back seat or trunk for while!

I dont suffer from mental iIlness, I actually enjoy mine!

Maybe it's the weather?
I have had parts send over from the US before and found in general them to be twice as quick as our own local postage.
But this time I have one coming which cost me US $89,-.
It took "three" days just to get to the international airport in San Francisco ????
This time they are as good(bad) as our own national postage service LOL

Maybe your package was "intercepted."

I like USPS Priority alot. Sent a package to a guy in HI last week. Dropped it off at the post office Thursday around 2pm and the guy in HI had it on Friday by 4pm.

I think the plane they put the package on must have been sitting ready to go behind the post office???
