    Sorry to hear that mist, I was pretty surprised myself that it arrived here without any delays at customs.

    But as Im waiting for my batts lets say we are in the same boat ;-)

    Usually the Customs open and verify something like 25% of the ordinary packages. Only 1 over 4.

    And if your package does not contain any sort of bill, it will necessarily be stopped because the customs would need to ask you about its price in order to calculate the taxes and duties. Especially when they do not have the slightest idea of what that is.

    This is why I always ask my sellers to include inside and outside the package, any kind of paper that looks like a bill, preferably under 50$, and to label them as "battery chargers" (for devices) and "electric resistance" (for atomizers) or "x flavor" (for e-juice)...This is usually the best way for "no questions asked".

    The reason is simple: An employee at the customs is an employee. When a package arrives, he has to fill a form. And in this form, there are categories...like "electrical", or "food", or "perfume", or "clothes", or "toys"..etc...etc...Then there are range prices. And whatever information he does not find stuck on the external package, makes him open up the package to see if it might be inside. And if inside he still does not find it, then there is a whole procedure that starts.

    So the most important thing for a seller, if he cares for quick deliveries to his customers, is to avoid having the package opened up, at the first place.

    Good and clean packing + external bill stuck on the exterior of the package, including clear identifiable fields and price range, are the best way for success.

    I'm thinking of getting a GGTS but i have some concerns like podder if i pay $211 for a mod i wouldn't want to wait weeks to get it back from repairs if it happens to need it.

    I'm pretty sure i will buy one though because i have read nothing but good things about VaperKing and imeo seems like a person who takes pride in his craftmanship.

    I think you would be making the right choice with a GG. Everyone involved with the GG and its sales takes great pride in this product and the loyal customer following that it has created.
    It's unlikely to need repairs and most can be done yourself as it's designed to be easy to fix by the user if anything does go wrong.
    Additionally, the fact that VaporKings are US based, makes it an even easier decision for you guys over there, I would have thought.......

    It is good to see you my friend. You need to stop by more often. I think the wait is harder on Rob than it is on us. :(:(:(

    It didn't come today but yes he is getting antsy waiting. They will be here soon. Rob ships fast and once they get to him the wait will be a short one to get in our hands. :):):)

    We've got power...I was just checking emails on the iPhone and replied to you from it.

    I know the USPS has slow downs but this is getting rediculous. This is day 10.

    DHL is good...I was just about to set up an international mail forwarding service and order from Cloud9. :)
    But even if this first shipment continued to delay, the next DHL shipment should make it to OK next week, right?
    Gotta keep the fingers crossed...
