Its a terrible feeling when you get that letter through the door... I know exactly how you feel. I had over an ounce of mushies from Europe seized this year. Thankfully just a warning was given. But I'd be lying if I said I didn't shit myself.
No, just a letter from customs, no warnings or threats, dont think its worth their time for smaller amounts, I only ever worry that my address could have a mark beside it but dont even think that happens
Someone else is waiting for EU orders marked as sent on 08.11?
I'm waiting for an order placed on 06.11 and marked as sent on 08.11 and still nothing (today is 17.11), usually lands in 7-8 days.
Not having the tracking number (I asked RB, they said will send it Monday (yesterday), but this didn't happened) makes me nervous as this was my most expensive purchase and I really hope that the package was not seized.
If anyone else is waiting (for EU orders) please share your experience here.
For RB: If you read this, please send me the tracking code, thanks.
I'm in the South east Mediterranean, and had fluctuating delivery times, varying from 35+ days, down to most recently 5-8 days. RB is a bit slow at replying sometimes, but has always came through with a tracking number.. eventually.
I've also never had a order go missing, ( touch wood ) had a few signed for by different people.
RB is the most consistent vendor I've purchased from IMHO.
My last 2 orders have been seized both on a Thursday this is the day the dog is in the mail centre. Its pot luck when it will reach the mail center as the post is all over the place with lockdown. I tried to order on a Thursday to avoid this but unfortunately that one landed on a Thursday again the following week and was also seized.
But, only now I have noticed that in fact, the status is:
Updated on: Thursday 12 November 02:30am Item Leaving the UK LANGLEY HWDC
Thursday 12 November 01:18am Item Received by Royal Mail LANGLEY HWDC
So according to the status above, the parcel was with customs only for 1 hour and then the status changed to "Item leaving the UK", maybe will land soon or is just (even if it is odd) waiting for the next plane, who knows...
Bit strange that it was kept one hour.... They might have rolled one to try :) I do not know in which country you live but post in mine start to be affected again due to volume of orders vs. Lack of resources... Still hoping it could land...
All my previous order had a gap of maximum 5 hours between received at LANGLEY HWDC and Item leaving the UK, so looks ok this, what is concerning me: why it's stuck since 12nov with the status Leaving the UK. For me this looks odd and may be that the custom are doing extra checks, brrr my poor weed =)
RB is always good for a re ship and has sorted both of the orders that were seized. As for leaving UK it does not hit customs till it comes to Ireland. It's the risk you take ordering from here man. Hopefully it comes for you. Best of luck.
Got a love letter dated on the 12.11. Could have been a bad day for it. I got letter and am hoping the re-ship will get past this time. Lots of orders made and this is the first issue. Hope all works out for you!
