Has Anybody from the U.K ordered one of these from Mark in the U.S? I was wondering how long they take to arrive as Mark E-mailed me saying it had been sent on the 31st of May but it still hasn't arrived!!! Smile Smile Smile

I'd e-mail Mark back to check on it. I've sent stuff to the UK and it's gotten there in 3-5 days (Global Priority). Ask Mark how he sent it.

The Sight Unseen Case is a great prop.

Then again, using surface mail, it takes as much as 3 months to get items to Australia from the US by mail.

Best,

I sent Ian Rowland a package and it took 6 weeks!! Which reminds me, I need to email him and ask him what he tought of the material!

I myself need to get me a Sight Unseen, but it will have to wait. =(

When sending from the US to other countries, be sure to specify delicvery by Air Parcel Post. Otherwise it can go by ship and take for blinkin' ever. And the cost difference in miniscule.

I've frequently sent packages to the UK and Australia in less time than it takes to get a similar package delivered to New York. Which says something about mail routing through New York.

HI,
Yes the difference is small however, if the parcel has anything with metal in it and it is going to the UK air mail then it will be scanned and opened by customs. they then charge about £10.00 to open and reseal it
+ vat 17.5% on the value of the goods and if its costly some import duty! oh yes and the post man wont give you the goods until you cough up the cash.
So think before you order.
also although it can take up to 9 weeks
for surface mail normaly it only takes 2-3 weeks I have never waited longer than 5 and that was because of christmas.

How can I find Mark to buy one?

Is there any UK dealer carrying it as that would make things easier?

thanks

I have exactly the same problem. My card was debited on the 31st May but have still not received it.

I have contacted Mark, but not received a reply.

I'm not absolutely certain but I believe Mark is still on the road. If so, he has limited opportunities to check and reply to email.

Also, I've noticed that mail within the US has been a lot slower at times recently, I'd presume overseas is likewise affected. A package Bob Cassidy sent me took a week and a half that should normally have taken 2-3; I sent a package to a customer in CA and two weeks later he had yet to receive it.

I received my SUCII on Friday, guess it took the long route too. Seems like ages since I ordered it but it finally managed to walk to the UK!

If it helps at all I can guarantee that will love it when it finally does arrive.

Hope it gets here soon

Mark has been on the road, lecturing in the West and the East. Just attended PEA's MOM in Virginia. He will be catching up shortly. I can personally assure you that Mark is very diligent about filling orders as promptly as possible.

I also received mine at the weekend, and am very pleased with it.

It was also extremely convenient that I told the missus it was 'about $10', as the USPS customs sticker had it valued at $10 too. Exceptional mindreading on my part I think Smile
