    So, say I had an item shipped from Hong Kong, it left HK on the 24th, if I live in SoCal, when abouts should I expect it?

    I only live 11 hours from SoCal, and I've been waiting 4 weeks for some shit to get here from Hong Kong.

    you got tonnes of variables to consider, which makes pegging your delivery's timetable down.

    j have had items shipped from HK reach me in 4 days, or 3 weeks.

    If you order anything from Japan or anywhere from the far-east, it's best to go EMS. Yes, it's more expensive, but no later than two weeks will you get your package. Sometimes even less than a week! Say they ship it out Monday, you could receive it following Wednesday or Friday.
    EMS is your friend. :)

    In about 10-14 days. Maybe earlier, depending on the service. Even express when used for international takes up to a week.

    Checked the usps tracking ish. Reason I asked was that, earlier, it simply stated that it had left Hong Kong on the 24th. Its been updated, said it hit Santa Clarita on the 26th and is in transit to its destination.

    Brea ain't too far from Santa Clarita, so guess I'll get it today.

    Thanks a lot for your responses gang.
