it means just what is says, handed to customs.

GreenBean 04-29-2013 01:18 AM

It means the last recorded, and therefore, reported info is the item is in the hands of US Customs.

Mid-morning time for the info suggests their usual lack of communicating & updating the system.

tbf, I would wait for more updates and not panic yet

I would not worry about it right now. Usually will be in customs for a few days.
Next posting will probably read:

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA NEW YORK Despatch from customs.

Gamefreak 04-29-2013 02:16 AM

Everything gets handed over to customs. what it needs to say next is custom cleared or something of that nature. If it doesnt then.... yeah

yotano211 04-29-2013 02:32 AM

But with US customs in NY, I dont think it will get updated until it arrives in your city. NY has a rep for not updating tracking info very well.

dreamzilla 04-29-2013 10:25 AM

thanks but heres the info on the package i actually received ....notice the difference

I would just give it a couple days and not worry about it too much. It is not like there is much you can do in either case other than speculate. That is unless you expect the FBI to come beating down your door :pop2:

I have constant shipments to the US and parcels either just go through the customs (as I think, no check at all, just scan through the machines), or pending to be checked by customs (they may open the packages).

So your parcel should be randomly picked and awaiting customs to check.
As it's small one it should have no problems and usually my parcels go through it in about 2-4 days in similar cases as yours.

AuctionsDenied 04-29-2013 09:43 PM

Where is the package going? What State?

rsot 04-30-2013 05:22 AM

Wait 72-120 hours for an update - if no status change by then...your item has been seized and is gone. - too soon to judge.

Sandy D 04-30-2013 08:00 AM

Best to listen to those who ACTUALLY do import items and not those who have not purchased any imported items either at all or in many years.

Listening to someone who just repeats what others have said can get you in a spot, so make sure when you are advised on something like this the poster has actually done some "recent" importing.

Good luck, I hope it works out for you.

dreamzilla 04-30-2013 11:54 AM

@AuctionsDenied ...its going to Buffalo , never had an issue with ems before , status is the same since last friday ( the 26th)

dreamzilla 04-30-2013 11:56 AM

@yotano211 ...yeah its been there for a few days and nothing today, but same shipper/ seller sent it in 2 small boxes , got the one saturday , the other got yanked..im going to give it another day or 2 and if nothing then its gone

yotano211 04-30-2013 05:37 PM

If you got one then the other one is not far behind. They both say the same name and are going to the same address. Maybe both packages came into customs on different airplanes. I have gotten the same results with shipments from Taiwan with EMS and DHL. My ems things go through San Fransisco.

The last time I purchased from China, my order was broken up into 3 shipments.

The longest I have had something in customs was for 1 1/2 weeks.

I have had one package kept in customs, which were scarves, (non-vero) generic and customs sent me a notice to pay clothing tariffs. I let the package go because the amount was almost twice the amount I paid for the items.

Anyway, if they keep the package, they will notify you.

Hopes this helps

dreamzilla 05-05-2013 10:20 PM

hey guys thanks for all the help and input....its been about 9 days and if its not here by the end of the week im gonna chalk it up to a loss...i did notify my supplier and my supplier is going to re send items back out ...bought through dhgate so i know they want their money and i cant release funds until i am satisfied.

but i think its toast ( package at least)

GreenBean 05-06-2013 01:49 AM

@dreamzilla

Sometimes even 9 days is too early.

But that would be your choice, of course.

Part of doing business.

Just wondering if you ever received the shipment or did customs notify you?

dreamzilla 05-15-2013 10:14 AM

@AuctionsDenied ...never got it , now waiting for a letter to show up lol

BigCJ 05-15-2013 11:06 AM

Same here with one package. I'm expecting a letter as well.

Wasn't vero, bootlegs, nothing high risk at all and only 2 pieces.

Went to Cincinnati, then New york, then MEXICO, then stated that
it went to the wrong HUB, then went BACK to New york, then BACK to mexico, handed to customs and then confiscated...

From what I hear, mexico customs are horrid and will take almost anything.
