You are right - they won't release it before the letter has been sent out. The trick is - via internet you know when it got on the way. To pay for it - all you need is the tracking number.

So the question is - will they actually release letters - or do they wait for them. So far the package seems stuck in customs for >12 hours. They tend to be faster. If they reckon to let them stuck there and only release letters once the strike is over, then we are busted.

You can't pay before it's in there system. Will check later tonight and update you. If customs is not affected by the strike it should be out of there at least by noon.

PS: I just checked the parcelforce website. According to the website parcelforce is 'not affected' by the strike and will work normally. Off course they warn that they expect bigger than usual business which impacts them indirectly. As said before - watch the tracking website and try to phone in to them once it indicates that the package has left customs.

Mine is just "awaiting customs charges" and has been for the past 24 hours. I'll keep an eye on it.

Seems we might be out of luck after all :( There is a possibility that customs won't let the stuff through as they 'can't inform us' of the charges due to the strike. If this is correct, then we have to wait until the strike is over.

So much for Parcelforce claiming they are 'unaffected'. Maybe for parcels without not going through customs. 24+ hours is way to long for customs to figure out how much we owe them.

It's just more practise at waiting for us my friend. I'm just going to browse the pictures sub-forum to see if anyone has thrown us a bone.

Got one of my two boxes! :) Hate it when the boxes are separated like this, but at least I got the better box. Has at least one of the two new sets in this box :D

All I can say about the Tavern set is AMAZING!!! :) The detail put into all the little pieces to help dress the tavern set is fantastic.

WIll have to do some set ups this weekend to show the pieces off :) Just have to work around the mother and sister in law visiting ;)

How are you doing with your package? Mine arrived at the local depot on the 8th Oct, but I STILL haven't received a letter stating how I pay the customn charge and rip-off handling fee.

I got my payment notice on Thrusday (after work) and forgot to pay so far as I'm not around anyhow ...

My advice to you:

Go to the parcelforce website. Enter the tracking number from DF.

On the next page you will see a parcel number.

This is the number you need to get the parcel, to pay for it etc. This number is different !! to the USPS number.

Try to phpne the local depot and get an operator. Alternativly if the depot is close - druve there. You can pay and pick up directly. Have some proof of identity with you. They might want the letter - but with a proof of identity as well as the parcel number you should be fine.

No option for me - 1 1/2 hour drive ... Otherwise I would just pick it up as my wife is working now as well. Is great for spending - but bad to get the stuff delivered.

Thod

PS: if your depot is Medway then the number to phone is 08700 844527 - open 8-19.00 during the week, 8-12.30 on saturdays. Telephone 24 hours a day.

Any progress? I picked up my package today from the local post office. First time I managed to get it delivered there straight away instead of my home first.

Hope your package also has made some progress.

Thod (et al)

I finally managed to pick up the order from the local depot last Friday. It was a bit of a saga, which I won't bore you with, but both new sets are fantastic (as are the open water tile freebies).

Very pleased overall.
