    Re: We're Importers - How we work with Shipping Delays

    We have one big box stuck with USPS. It left on 2 March and should of been here a week later. USPS has stuff all contact details, if I lodge a 'claim' it says "please wait 30 days". NZ Post can't help as it's left LA but is not in NZ. There are a LOT of small Honda orders in this box (15 odd), which I hope you have all been alerted to! If you haven't - sorry! Really trying to work all angles to find out why it's held up and where it is!

    21 days, and it's gotten cleared with Customs finally! For crying out loud!

    Hey ya'all - I've got near 30 PM's to catch up on. We had our leave over Anzac and Easter but I also had to take 3 days personal grievance leave last week =[ Back at the helm, so we're on it now!

    Re: We're Importers - How we work with Shipping Delays

    I think most of ya'all know that Xmas / Thanks Giving / Winter holidays in the Northern Hemisphere / New Years is a crazy time to be shipping round the world! So we'll be keeping a close eye on orders and timing, especially custom items, to ensure we're under no illusions as to the wait times (if any) when ordering. As at the 1st Dec, boxes are taking a week longer than typical - mainly because of either the brand or inland shipping, to get to us in LA. Orders are 3-4 days longer ex Japan also! So if you are treating yourself this year and want stuff before Xmas, now's the time. Orders after the 10th run the risk of really, really being stalled!

    Re: We're Importers - How we work with Shipping Delays

    Brands that are currently very slow:

    Blox (low stock on most items, no stock on acccessories and intake bits)
    Function7 - 1-2 month lead time
    Innovative Mounts - same as F7

    The trend is, US brands are quite to very slow at the moment.

    The other brands are generally ok - high stock and quick delivery.

    Most Japanese brands have geared up for the new race and show season and are well stocked now.

    Try to plan well ahead in either case if looking at parts from Japan or the US

    Re: We're Importers - How we work with Shipping Delays

    Good news - talking to Brent from NZ Post at end of month to discuss new container options from Japan. We're always pushed outside our ETD window ex Japan and he's going to throw some options at us. What this might mean is that if you want a hood shipped right now, you can get it on the ocean without having to pay over $1000 in one-off-shipping. Fingers crossed this can iron out a big shipping kink!

    Re: We're Importers - How we work with Shipping Delays

    K-Tuned were recently robbed 2 weeks out from Sema and have only made the announcement recently. What does this mean? Not a lot, customers here are covered, but it does mean that the timing and financial ramifications are flowing down to dealers, us included. No one down-under can help K-Tuned really, and we cover you - not them - in such an event. For future orders, give them a bit of time, and we will be overly prudent in ensuring items are stocked and / or ready.

    Secondly, J's Racing have been incredibly slow. They were in Taiwan last month, and I believe Hisaaki has been in the USA for 2-3 weeks now. Near a month down, out of two. You can follow him on Facebook if you must! But, as he is the only international sales 'filter', orders are slow slow!
