yeah im not worried about my packages getting stolen. ive never had an issue with packages not arriving even when i've send presents like a watch or some gold to family. these packages are mostly welding equipment and some clothes plus there's tracking on them and I bought insurance in case they get lost
up to 3 months is a heck of a long time though.... I wonder if express shipping would reduce that to 2-4 weeks it wasn't too much more. I figured I'd first try it with standard china post to see how long it takes. I've sent a lot of packages from us to and from Poland but this will be my first from china.
Yeah I'm expecting it go to through customs. Back in the day you could ship anything even cars without much inspection. Not anymore though. It's not even like drugs and guns they're after so much it's more people trying to skirt paying VAT at least from my experience.
