40 Days and Counting

Normally I have no problems with orders from HK. I've been a satisfied customer for years. This time I'm getting frustrated. I placed an order on May 22, that was given to Malaysia Post two days later. On June 16 Malaysia Post reported the package on it's way to New Jersey. That's 23 days just to put the package on a plane! Today is July 1, and the package has yet to reach the shores of the US. The US Postal Service Says that the foreign carrier has notified it of the pending shipment. So where is the package?

What is really strange is that on another forum a person ordered the same item I'm waiting on. He ordered his on May 20, and Malaysia Post says the same thing about his package. hobby King what is going on?

Malaysia POS has proven to be a nightmare of inefficiency.My last package was shipped fast enough from HK but between MPOS and customs it was nearly 4 weeks before I saw my package .
I noted that Swiss Post was an option on my last order (20- 1/10 scale slick tire/wheels for touring cars ) and it only took about 10 days from order to doorstep.

Malaysia POS is just a waste of time & space.

Good way to destroy your reputation HK, and they are STILL using MY.

Same here ...

Same problem here,

I have the same problem, ordered on May 14th, shipped May 23rd, still nothing delivered, contacted support at HK and they told me to wait some more... 39 business days which comes to July 11th... Hopefully thy are correct and I will receive it by this Friday.

If not received, I will recontact HK Support and request a refund as I have now purchased replacement items from other vendors and worst case I will initiate a dispute via Paypal...

HK really need to get a dependable shipping service, even if it is a bit more expensive.

just my experience,

39 business days is July 17 for me. I need my components. I will be OK with reshipping as long as Malaysia Post has nothing to do with it.

Mine was paid for and shipped May 21 and USPS still shows "origin post is preparing shipment". Malaysian pos shows that it was shipped to the US on 6/14. When I said something to the HK rep about using Malaysian post, she told me that I should order through my local warehouse.
