any problems with deliveries from japan 15 Years, 8 Months ago Karma: 0  
hi all,
anybody recently had delays, parcels not tuning up from japan. The reason i ask is that i am expecting a "10 mini lp cd delivery" from cdjapan. They were sent 23/07/08 and as yet not arrived they were sent "registered air mail"{which is tracked until leaving japan}i have used this service loads of times and the parcels have been here within 7/8 days.

I have just emailed cdjapan with my concerns and awaiting their reply.

Are there any problems that other people have had or having.

thanks...mark in plymouth u.k.

Hi Mark,

I've had some delays too but mine has been shipped SAL so it's hard to say - SAL is hit and miss.

All of my deliveries from cdjapan/hmv japan & any ebayers, have all arrived within 4-5 days through EMS. However, customs quite often stop them and it can take them up to 2 weeks to communicate with you and hold you to ransom for the tax.

If posting from Japan, ALWAYS EMS as you can track to your door via parcelforce in UK.

On a customs note, I was charged 7.50 tax on 2 discs of combined value 19.00, and to add insult to injury, the admin cost for telling me this thru parcelforce was 15.00! Ouch!

Customs is a lottery most of the times. Fortunately for me with EMS in about 120 parcels only one time had it stopped and the contents was the DEVO promo box and about another 10 individual mini lps.

But the only taked the invoice from the slip bag and charged the taxes, no further charges (the only bad is that charged for the product + the shipping cost), delays, or something.

The ones that charged me for admin cost were ALWAYS DHL, Fedex, and similars and as in your case they were high charges enven for a 2 albums shipping priced at only $30.

MHCP-1002 : 2006-06-07

Recorded in early July 1973 this album took nearly a year to make it to streets.

One of the most elaborate record covers ever produced and probably the most elaborate so far to make it to mini LP release. It is nearly impossible to capture the splendour of this on a web site but we shall try...
