    Probably at the covernty hub. Phone them up and get it moving. C&E have wonderful complaints procedures if you're tenacious enough.

    Ive just had a small parcel from the US.

    Posted on the friday afternoon, landed in the UK on Tuesday. Then took 2 weeks for parcelfarce to right to me, although the letter took a week to get to me too

    Parcel delivered 3 1/2 weeks after posting, got clobbered for duty which I expected, but on the box was Parcelfarce 48 hour delivery, tossers
