I'm waiting for a package that was supposedly sent surface mail from Canada about 8 weeks ago - anyone ever had experience with surface mail, and if so, how long should I expect to wait?

Cheers.

it is like an unpredictable beast: I had parcels/letters that arrived within 4 days (to mexico, australia i.e.) BUT also AIR MAIL ones that needed up to three months. you never know. there are plenty of reasons for a delay or fast delivery...

It usually takes 4-6 weeks, but can go up to 8 weeks... like Dennis says, it's really unpredictable.

Unpredictable definatly, it took 10 weeks for a demo to reach Israhell.

On the other hand, last friday I sent a tape in France and the guy got it Tuesday..! I was impressed.

Cool, thanks for the responses - I think I'll give it 'til 10 weeks then assume the guy has ripped me off, as he's not appeared particularly trustworthy so far (i.e. we both agreed to send AIR mail etc)...

I waited close to 3 months on Riotor stuff sent from the Mounties. It got here alright but I though it was lost for a while for sure.

That's one of the best things that ever happened recently. Waiting three months for a package, or never seeing the light of it, isn't exactly the dream of European traders and customers...
I guess it's the same the opposite way, of course...

If you're in Australia, Canada to AU by surface is a 3 month wait...

It really depends. I had surface ones to arrive within 4 days and one single air mail letter that needed 3 months. But ususally you have to wait. Most of the time we will get confirmation after 2-4 weeks (bigger boxes over 2 KG we cannot send as air-mail)...

It is like a lottery - as well as if the package arrives in good condition or worse.
