Epidemic and fasttech

I guess that is why we can differ… :wink:
I hate long shipping times, and if I can avoid covid, I will.
I am at risk, @BigDisplay and any kind of prevention for me, is for the best at least, for now. :slight_smile:

Yea I remember you told, good to see you still are healthy :crossed_fingers:t2::crossed_fingers:t2::crossed_fingers:t2:

About business shipping times from China i will say, in normal days without a pandemic, i can order goodies on monday, and thursday i get it in Denmark with DHL.
It really can’t be much faster.
Since 2012 I have import ecig gear from China, they are really effective i must admit.
And honestly they are more effective than the old Danish royal mail service PostNord, FlavourArt in Italy, Akkuteile in Germany and not to forget Beyondvape in the States :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

BTW my wife is in risk to, so she had to avoid the damn Corona to (sclerosis)

Stay safe @SmokyBlue :muscle:t2:

DHL is very fast, from China… A friend is sending me something and sent it Thursday and it is to be delivered today, [dhl]. I still have my dhl account, but it has not been used in 2 yrs now. I don’t ship overseas any longer. Super excited for today, first time in many months for me to get anything gear-wise it seems :slight_smile:

Will have to do a write up on what is coming! :smiley:

since covid 19 ive been using the expedited air shipping option for australia with fasttech, usually for around $5 and have been getting orders in 2 and half to 3 weeks for the past couple of months…
Ive had an order with everzon that was shipped in march via epacket with china post and im still waiting for that.
The 17 tracking site hadnt budged since it was marked cleared and awaiting international departure on the 12th march and just recently started showing EXPIRED.
Ive emailed them about 5 times and they kept insisting theyve contacted the shipper and its still awaiting clearance from Guangzhou, because of the backlog the shippers arent updating tracking like they should.
Lo and behold i just checked tracking now and it arrived in sydney a few days ago and is awaiting clearance here. Unbelievable, id written it off.
Though theyd guaranteed a refund on a few occasions and theyve refunded me before when an item didnt show.
So hang tight. thay had literally millions of parcels backlogged.
Id just about given up after 3 months.
It was actually 4 and a half months all up as i ordered on the 31st january but an item was out of stock for over a month

True, i use DHL most of all.

Nice, love to get new gear/toy.
I order this little cutie for my self “Steam Crave Aromamizer Ragnar RDTA 18ml”.
Got it today and tomorrow i have to play with it :scream::hugs:

Ohhh, love the Ragnar so far, your gonna have fun. Probably would be best to go with dual 3.5 to 4mm coils, smaller and you might not have enough wick to get into the ports.

I am now over 2 months waiting on my fasttech order. I will only buy from overseas vendors using DHL, the only reliable carrier although I have not tried Fedex or UPS but they are usually more.

Sounds awesome, i order it with a mesh deck to.

True with DHL, FedEx and UPS are nearly always slower. So ifs possible for me, i pick DHL for sure… It’s depends what i order.
A normal order without any batteries and or liquid its okay with DHL :+1:t2:

Nice :+1:I like the mesh deck better in the Ragnar than in the Plus V2. Overall I am liking the Ragnar better then the V2. The mesh deck can be tricky to wick at first, if you need some help then PM me.

I appreciate you sharing what you know, and your experience!

This whole thing just frustrates the piss out of me, because here’s no justifiable reason why it should take 4 months to get a package. Much less two months in this day and age.

Virus or not, it can’t live on inanimate objects like these for anywhere near this length of time.

You guys (in particular) would get it faster if they just…

Hell, you guys are complaining about a couple of months. I’m waiting on the second half of my order from January. Finally shipped on “May 1”. (and waiting)

Woo-Hoo! My FT order sent May 8 has finally arrived and you won’t believe it, on my birthday too :+1:. First the nicotine reprieve and then this order rocking up. Great birthday indeed. Only took 49 days. Not too bad considering the situation with the “rona” and all that.

Wow, 30 days after the post about being 6 weeks in waiting and my fasttech package finally got delivered. Almost 3 months, craziness

wow, thats pretty good for everzon at this time.
What post option was that buddy? theyve been all over the place with shipping options lately
They use to offer china post epacket which was pretty good but when covid19 hit they switched to singapore post which is backlogged to the shithouse.
Last time i ordered a couple of weeks ago they only had the drain battery special line and DHL.
So unless it was a battery only DHL was available which was something ridiculous like $70 for the order.
I asked why and they offered PostNL which is netherlands post.
I’ve been waiting a couple of weeks just for them to ship an order now.
Theyve been slack updating the account page lately to.
Those Blitz Ghoul are great value arent they?
Im waiting on a Vsticking as well

I used the 4PX option.

The gouhl are great. I like them flavor wise. And they are available at Fasttech at the same price atm.
