So this is my problem I bought a watch from the bay and yes its a G in case anyone wonders
I bought it from Singapore and the seller offered as an option Fedex expedited shipment. According to the info on the sellers listing the delivery time is supposed to be 3-4 working days with that option thats why I choosed that option in the first place rather then regular shipment that will take 2 weeks. I payed $28 for FedEx instead of regular $18 for standard registered airmail. The seller got my payment yesterday and sent my watch out the same day(eg yesterday by now). Now I have recieved a tracking nr and according to the time of arrival info on that tracking page the estimated time of arrival is Monday 31'th July at 6 PM(18.00) CET(I am in Sweden).
This scares the .... out of me!:-S
Thats 7 days and the major problem for me is that I am travelling abroad at that day. At 18.00 I will be at Arlanda Airport and my flight leaves at 18.55 CET. Thats only 55 minutes later and I will already have passed the security checkpoints at 18.00 and waiting for my flight. I so much wanted to use the watch while on vacation and there will be no one home to take the delievry nor answering any calls!. I will not be back untill August 15 or so.
So how do I solve this
How often is the Time of arrival incorrect and the delivery will be earlier?
In worst case scenario do you think it Is possible to arrange to have the courier deliver the package to me at the airport in the check in terminal rather then my home address that is written on the package?
I think I will be able to receive it there about 16.30-17.00 CET.
I have never had delivery with FedEx before or any other courier service. Will there be any extra charges that I have to pay directly to the delivery guy?
How often do you have to pay custom and tax?
Will that be in the form of a bill sent home?
I know in Sweden the tax is 25% on the value+shipping then additional 2-4% on top of that as toll. But in the regular custom when not using FedEx that have their own custom department for fast process there is an inofficiall rule not to charge such fees on packages below 200 sek or about $30 so I had
the seller label the package as $28 value and gift(in reality I payed $93 total). Hopefully I will not have to pay any customs or tax!.
But my biggest concern is now the delivery problems!
I am shitting in my pants soon over this!
I just noticed the current status that it had been picked up and is now at Singapore SG!. It was picked up 01.57 AM but dont know whos time that is if it is CET or Singaporean time!.
