    Does anybody know how long it takes for a shipment of transformers to get to California? I ordered some a week ago and they aren't here.

    Thanks

    Did they email you saying the packaged was shipped? If they didn't email you that, then it's not shipped yet. And if it is, you can usually track your package by logging in to their site.

    Fedex Ground transferred to USPS, shipped from Pennsylvania (unless there's a second warehouse?).

    So figure a cross-country drive... Plus sorting time, etc... You're looking at about 8 days transit, not to mention any delays and such.

    For me, I live in San Diego. Once you get shipping confirmation, it usually takes a week for delivery if you choose the cheapest shipping method. HTS shipped FedEx Smart post on my last order.

    Yup, I'm in the Inland Empire and once the shipping notice is sent, it takes about a week (usually a little less) for my stuff to get here. I've noticed stuff from Hasbro tends to beat the ETA by about a day quite often.

    Yea, and that transfer to USPS can take some time. I had a package arrive at the Fedex sorting facility 20 minutes from my house and take another 4-5 days since it was transferred to USPS.

    i don't know why people can't just overestimate shipping time and then be "pleasantly surprised" when it arrives a few days early instead of ordering and 2 days later dying to know who stole their package.

    i always allot 2 1/2 weeks for anything i order from HTS/BBTS/TFSource, etc and when it shows up 8 days later and well within my allotment, i don't have anything to worry about.

    some people actually count weekends as part of the time it takes to get to them; as in HTS says a week, and they ordered on Thursday...so Friday, Saturday, Sunday....wut? my order isn't at my Door on Thursday?

    HTS may not be speed demons with shipping, but in the end, (imo) they are pretty damn reliable.
    take comfort in that at least.

    thanks. Now I'm not so worried except for the fact they may not find my house out in the country 4 miles from town
