    Default Slow Delivery

    I can understand a somewhat slow delivery when an item (a ukulele) is coming from halfway around the world, but Florida to NY takes 12 hours by car. I ordered a Recording King banjo uke from eBay on 11/20. A label wasn't created till a week later, and it's still "In Transit" somewhere. I bought this from leonardos302, in case you want to remember that name.

    I've gotten most of my orders - even from Hawaii - in under a week.

    Whoops! Make that 24 hours driving from Florida.

    Seller is slow to process, how many sales do they have? Probably created the label and it's still sitting around...

    Even the USPS can screw up. Our postman messed me up last week...but I know how hard that job must be so I just wished him a good day.

    I wouldn't sweat it just yet. It's only been 10 days since you ordered, and 4 of those days were a Holiday weekend. Plus you've got weather delays & the Christmas mailing season to contend with now.

    Hi Jerry, I think RafterGirl makes a fair point. I too experienced some out-of-the-ordinary delays due to the intervention of the Holiday weekend; hang in there, it'll be worth the wait!

    Store says they were out the entire Thanksgiving week:
    https://www.ebay.com/str/Leonardos-3...p2047675.l2563
    We will be out of the office for Thanksgiving week and return 11/26. All packages should ship by 11/27. We will be monitoring emails during this time. Happy Thanksgiving!
    So at best it has been on the road for 4 days? Really not that much time.

    I don't see that on the listings so it is understandable you might not have seen that when making the purchase. But did you try to contact the seller before griping here? I'm not trying to be antagonistic. "Just sayin"

    First World problems Jerry. You got what 40-some odd ukes, I think you can keep busy until this one arrives

    Buying from a unknow private seller through ebay will leave you open to these "risks". I feel ya, it's happened to me.

    I appreciate your efforts in trying to bail out the seller, but I get packages almost every day, and nothing takes two weeks to get here, even from China, Japan, and Hawaii.

    I see now that I might get it on Monday. I hope so. Regardless what excuses there might be, it's still taking two weeks to get to me.
