Shipping FYI

If you order from HK and the stuff is coming from "different warehouses" get ready to wait. I ordered stuff last week and it has not shipped yet....and will not ship for another 5 days....the reason, the different items I ordered are coming from different warehouses and will all be packed together at a central warehouse.

Next time I order I will keep this in mind.....now I really wish they had more stuff in the US.

They tell you.
Like when I ordered a plane, they told me it was coming from a remote warehouse and it would be days before they had it to put with the rest of the order.

I think you will find JIT items are from there back warehouse and from what i can make out they are at another warehouse,so if you order has something which has a JIT item in it and then yes it will have to go to the main warehouse.

HK do say that JIT items will take longer so just make sure you know that when ordering,when i order JIT items i never order anything else with it because that parcel will then have to travel to there main warehouse,so they can pack the rest of your order with it,if you just order the JIT parcel on it's own then they will ship it straight from that warehouse,which they call the back warehouse.

If i've got the JIT letters the wrong way around or the wrong ones tuff as you get what i mean.

Come on people we can't blame HK if we make the mistakes and don't look before we order.

I thought we couldnt order from multiple warehouses? Are you talking about the JIT items? If so, they say right on them they will take 5-7 days or whatever it is to leave the warehouse. I am assuming thats business days. My JIT items didnt take the full 7 days but I knew I was going to have to wait because it said right in my cart. Hope they get you sorted!

I don't think the OP is blaming HK, rather his purpose was information to let others know about "different warehouses" or JIT items.

To me it's good info, since I've not heard of it....and I've been buying from HK for the last 7 years.
