    Made a purchase off that big auction site. Paid immediately, via PayPal. Next day, got an emal stating "Your item has been shipped" on June 5. OK, so far, so good. This package is (supposedly) going from Long Beach, California to N.J.
    After a couple of days, I take a peek at the "tracking" info, which tells me nothing.

    After a week of being "in transit to the next destination", I get another notice that it has arrived in the Los Angeles processing facility (!) . Here`s the most recent update:

    Strange things happen sometimes, not only with USPS. I would like to consider not to be too concerned until another week has went by.

    Piney Flats is 15 miles from Bristol. Our mail leaves here and goes to Knoxville (100 miles away!) and then back.

    Is that USPS?
    They put it in the wrong bin.

    I've had packages bounce between facilities for a week then finally delivered. No reason.

    I've had packages go on US tour and then disappear never to be seen again.

    Wait and watch and wonder and be ready to file a claim.

    Distance in SOCAL is measured in time, not miles.

    USPS tracking is THE WORST. I have had packages show no movement for days (last known location hours or a day's transit away) and then get a knock on the door an hour later. I've had stuff mysteriously "disappear" from the system and then arrive weeks later--once even after Ebay and USPS settled the claim for a "lost" package with me and the seller--we ended up splitting the refund :thumbsup:

    I am currently awaiting a package that got shipped via that idiotic partnership between FedEx and USPS--ships via FedEx and gets transferred to the USPS for local delivery. Made it over 3/4 of the way across the CONUS via FedEx within 48 hrs. Transferred to USPS and it has taken days to show any movement from the transfer location, and the expected delivery date has been extended--at this point, I could have walked there and back.

    EDIT/ADDITION--and now who claims responsibility for damages (if any)?

    Hey
    Probably setting in a trailer/lot somewhere.
    I had a tuner from Washington State take like 2weeks in transit to show up in ks. I finally found a guy at the p.o. tell me the real deal. The seller shipped it cheap so there is no priority given . Basically he told me to cool my jets it will get here when it gets here. It did, eventually. Eric

    Update:
    Contacted seller, asked him to please check the status. Heard back from him, said he called the Post Office, but they didn`t have an answer for him. Wonderful....

    The item is currently in transit to the next facility as of June 13, 2018.
