Default Pressies from the UK - how long did yours take?

We know that stuff was posted to us in ChCh from the UK in late November, but it has yet to arrive here.

Anyone else waiting on stuff, or has NZ Post got a vendetta out on just us?

One of the packages has all of our immigration docs in, so I'm starting to get antsy!

Evening. My mum sent us a parcel at the beginning of Dec and it is still not here, so it's not just you so no need to get paranoid just yet.

still waiting on xmas parcel from UK sent end Nov/beg Dec. sure it'll turn up any day soon; guess there's just a backlog. Did you get your immigration docs sent by Airsure? Have you tried tracking them?

Default Re: Pressies from the UK - how long did yours take?

We're still waiting on ours too. One from the western isles and the other from mainland UK. The last one might take bit longer as my brother in law sent it to our old UK address to be forwarded by royal mail because he's too tight to send it direct!! So who knows when that one will arrive. I wouldn't mind but the kids stuff is in that parcel too. What a meanie.

We were sent a load of pressies on the same day from the UK and all arrived here bar a new Sony PSP for my daughter from her grandparents........... its now been 'missing' for weeks.

Was insured and trackable but seems parents have lost the ticket for the delivery....

Someone somewhere would seem to have snaffled a new PSP for free.

I've found the larger parcels take longer - a week was the best for a CD sized parcel whereas a box full of Jaffa Cakes took about 6 or 7 weeks.

2 of ours got here in 4 days, 3 more took 2 weeks. That was around end of November.
Seems to be better going the other way, waited for the recommended postal dates to expire (as we did last year) sent 3 parcels on 12th December. all arrived in the UK by the 18th

Default Re: Pressies from the UK - how long did yours take?

Yeah - same here. We sent ours to the UK a week or so ago, and were sure they'd be late but they've arrived already.

Still no sign of the UK stuff due here though.

Ah well, it'll give us something to look forward to in Jan when we're skint I s'pose!

Thanks for the reminder, I have to go down to Courier Post tomorrow to collect a package. It was posted 3 weeks ago in England.
