I am now a huge fan of going with the DHL shipping option.  Ties arrived 11 days after ordering.  icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gifThe only problem is that DHL delivered them as I was leaving for the day, and I won't be back in the office to see them until Thursday.  ffffuuuu.gif

+1000

 

It is the only way to go in my opinion, effective from both a time and cost perspective.

What options do people in US use for shipping? Or do you just wait the 3 weeks?

 

Mine shipped today. So, early July? Bummer.

 

Edit: Holy shit. I should read the post above mine. Sorry guys. Well, thanks! :-D

The only time I've ever gotten a customs bill was when I used DHL.

Customs have been hit or miss on my deliveries which have all been via DHL.  It hasn't happened very often and the assessments have not been large, essentially sales tax size.  Not a big deal in my opinion.

Another vote for DHL shipping. I selected the cheapest/3 week method for my first purchase, but have used DHL on all subsequent orders. Definitely worth the extra $10 or so, and no customs bill so far, knock on wood. laugh.gif

From my experience as well as other accounts I've read in this thread, the standard shipping usually doesn't take the full 3 weeks--more like 2. The one time I used it, transit time was 12 days. Still, that felt like an eternity waiting for my first Hobers and stalking this thread every day. tongue.gif
