    Its been 2 weeks and 2 days since my Dvds (below customs limit) were dispatched from dvd pacific to the uk via international surface.
    NOTHING HAS SHOWN UP
    Does it normally take that long? DVDPacific dont want to send a replacement yet and now that they have my money, frankly dont want to know..

    Never use surface mail - its far too varied. The 2 times i used it - 1 parcel took 7 days the other took 3 weeks. It just depends on what fishing boat they go on :D .
    Also if the parcels are over the limit they may be held up in customs - even if they are under the limit but are a big parcel they will be checked over.
    Always use the Airmail option takes around 5 -7 days.

    So what ar you saying that theres more of a chance that my DVDs will never show up with surface mail? That is outrageous! I am ****** with DVDPacific.

    Also I did NOT go over customs limit nor are any of the parcels large.
    IM SICK OF ONLINE COMPANIES SCREWING US OVER

    It can take up to eight weeks to arrive by surface mail, depending of course if they put it on the correct boat

    IT CERTAINLY DOES NOT say anything about 8 weeks on DVDPacifics website under that shipping option.
    I think this is terribly misleading and will certainly be complaining about this crap.

    I relate to my experience of the usage of ordering items via surface mail, and as good as any company is, or the carriers they use, I'm afraid to say these things happen from time to time.

    Indeed if you care to look at Royal Mail's website on the usage of surface mail..outward, (eight weeks) you will see that this is in fact a reality, at times.

    On occasion I've waited 18 weeks for delivery on items sent to me by surface, newspapers etc, one in particular that would have put Jules Verne to shame.
    :D

    Its really nothing to do with dvdpacific you picked the cheap shipping option you have to wait for it to arrive, once royal mail decide to deliver it :D .
    Also on dvdpacific's site details on there Lost disc policy are....
    You should read the site as its all there for you :lesson:
    So you only have to wait 45 days till you can claim a replacement.
    Remember if you are unsure about what shipping to use with a online store ask on this forum and we will give you plenty of advice.
