CURRENT SHIPPING to the UK - 9th April 2020
Hi,

Can anyone tell me what the quickest, and most reliable Shipping Option to the UK is at the moment, and HOW LONG it takes on average? - Just standard items - no liquids, external or internal batts, etc.

Some of my orders from Jan and Feb using 'Fastech' free option / Hong Kong post still haven't arrived.

I know that flights from China across many of the shippers have been greatly reduced lately, but hopefully that will improve in the coming weeks now that gradual lifts on movement and e-commerce lockdowns are starting to be made in China (although whether that is such a good idea right now, I'm not sure. :-/).

Anyway...
Any feedback about orders shipped to the Uk in the last 3 weeks or so, which shipping you used, and how long to door, would be great. Cheers.

Not in the UK but I'm giving DHL a go (I definitely exceeded max weight/dimensions for epacket) so I'll report back on what that's like to the US

Had two packets arrive at the local depot this morning, about 17 days using e-packet

Another one's been stuck at North West Midlands MC for over a week now

Yep, Singapore Post to the UK for me too.

One came through ten days ago, and another is also heading my way right now.

Supposedly my 2 packages were shipped on March 9th to the US via USPS Express Packet and in a months time I have not received one update. My advice to anyone contemplating ordering from FastTech in the US is probably not to make any orders from China at all til everything is back to normal.

Thanks a lot for your feedback everyone. I think I'll leave it, or perhaps just put in a teeny-tiny order of 'can do without for 6 months' items.

Cheers all, & keep safe.
