- Delays are expected around the following dates. Last 2 weeks of December and 1st week of January as all companies try to adjust to the high traffic of the season (Christmas). End of January / Beginning of February as the Chinese celebrate New Year and factories close. European products will take longer to be received during the summer months. They take vacation time seriously in Europe and production stops for 3-4 weeks in most cases. Please plan ahead and take these dates into consideration when placing an order. We will be happy to check if you have any questions.
- ETA or Estimated Time of Arrival is a good faith estimate provided by the importer / manufacturer. Several parties are involved in the production and distribution of the items we sell. Factories, international freight companies and domestic ones might experience delays due to many factors. US Customs might hold a load for inspections. Always keep in mind that an ETA is just an estimate (90% of the times is accurate).
