Depends on how they shipped it.
if it was by post it could take up to 4 weeks.

Did they give you a tracking number.

When i bought my prop from the USA ebay motors it took exactly two weeks from me paying to it landing on my doorstep. That was using the US postal service. I dont know what the Canadian post is like.

Thats a little pricey from what I have learned over the last few weeks, a few of you inquired about shipping with us and we learned the hard way that we were to expensive.

regular post tells us it can take up to 4 weeks, Purolator is faster.

but we have now found UPS to be the fastest and cheapest..

( sorry for the high rates thats what we were quoted at the time and have now learned differently ---- you know who you are )

Usually pay around £50 for 5/10 day airmail, Usps are probably the cheapest.

$300 sounds like $200 to $250 too much,

I pain $100 for the prop on ebay motors and including the shipping and the vat when it got to the uk shore, stands me in at less than £80!!

It depends how its being shipped.
USPS overground usually takes 3 weeks
TNT can take as little as four days

My props usually arrive within 3 weeks
and cost for shipping is about $70

propeller shipping cost

Just received today my fifth propeller from RON HILL (3 blades Hoss style 14.5x 28) the shipping cost from L.A. to France by USPS is 60 US $ and it take 8-10 days (flat rate) to be at my door (for me it was exactly 8 days). For a lighting ET four blades the shipping cost is a little bit higher do to the fact this prop is heavier. USPS is a good way to work, very good price, and you have also a track number. I don't understand what they are doing during 4 weeks to send a prop from canada by regular post

I totally agree with you about the US Postal Service. Whenever I get anything from the States the first thing I ask the retailer is if they will use USPS - I try to insist because they are by far the cheapest. Also I have had many parcels from there over the years and not once have I been bothered by customs (hope nobody from HMC&E is viewer!) however any parcel by FedEx (pensive) or UPS (sidedown) automatically incur duty etc because the carrier has to pay it first.
