    Hey guys, I recently ordered an Acekard 2/2.1 from realhotstuff.com (with free shipping) . They received my payment about a week ago, and my package hasn't arrived. I live near Vancouver, Canada, and was wondering what could be taking so long? Anyone had any experience? Thanks.

    It's going to take more than a single week to reach you.

    IIRC, RHS is located in California, and you're from Canada. It's going to take more than a week to ship it over the border and get it through customs.

    I thought RHS was located on the East Coast of the U.S. or am I thinking of a different store.

    RHS is located in New Jersey. As for shipping from RHS to Canada, it would take about a week maybe 2 at most.

    Ah, I guess I was mistaken. In any event, it will take a while to get to where you are.

    The problem is definitely not RHS, it's your customs department. RHS ships your stuff the following day after payment is made, sometimes the same day, if you pay early in the day. It's definitely your Customs Department slowing up the delivery. They are a top notch seller!

    @everyone: RHS.com ships from New Jersey.

    you would input your tracking number into www.usps.com. they will only track it until it crosses the border. then you should be able to track with your local canadian post. if you don't have a tracking number then you can't find out where it is.

    I ordered from RHS last week and received my order in Colorado in a couple of days. Be patient with the customs time suck.

    it should take about 2 weeks to cross the border. canadian post is notoriously slow at the border. but i would wait up to a month before i started to complain to them about it.

    china to canada might be a little bit faster. for some reason us-to-canada always takes a few weeks. i've seen packages stuck at the border for 2 weeks. trying to recommend a good chinese run shop these days is rather difficult for me. i haven't kept up with it, so perhaps the community can better answer your question.
