Well, it probably has to change delivery services too because i highly doubt the USPS (United States Postal Service) is going to deliver a package in Canada.

You know yer better off having someone you know or a relative that resides in the US to get what you need and not worry bout The US Customs, you can jus simply come over the border and bring it back wit you wit less problems.

If you got insurance on it, I wouldn't worry about it. Probably just delayed.

I just orderd soemhting through usps. It was sent on october 12, and its now novemebr 2, im starting to get a little worried. It was sent to Canada on plane fom chicago and it took 14 days to get to vancouver, the status now says it just at customs as 29th of october and to get form the airport in vancouver to the actual customs place it took 3 days! i just wanted to know if anybody whos shipped or recieved items across the border has ever had an experience like this, what did you do? Im really getting worried, i paid over 1000 dollars.
