Does anyone know the difference between the two companys they use and why they may use one for some and not another? Wonder if the quicker one is more expensive for them or just a better run copmany compared to the Deutche post.

Man, I ordered the Spider-Man trilogy ($40AUD delivered) from amazon.co.uk last Wednesday, and it stated that it ships within 5-6 days.

Received an email on Friday saying it had dispatched.

Well, it arrived on my doorstep here in Melbourne this morning.

I have always enjoyed a fantastic service from amazon.co.uk, but this set a new record for me.

I am waiting on items that were dispatched on the 15, 16 and the 18 of June no sign of them , and yet an order that i placed on the 22/06 arrived yesterday all via those bloody Germans.

Interesting , on the paperwork stuck on the box of my latest order , it had a date of the 24/06 as despatch hmm something is going on , plus i have had sets sealed and unsealed ,boxed and unboxed all in the same orders.

Just signed up to AmazonUK. Can you only buy from AmazonUK directly, as opposed to other new/used sellers? The other ones i tried said they wouldn't ship to my address.

Asked this in another thread, but no response as yet.

I don't understand why, and every single order I have made with ama UK in the past 10 years has taken no more than 7-8 days (5 business) to arrive to me.

what would determine which service I wonder?

Likewise, I am a regular purchaser and have never waited more than 10 days. My last order was posted on the 26th June and arrived today - 5 discs. Although I am an amazon.com buyer also, it has to be a "special" title for me to warrant the "way worse" US postage times.

Once in Australia who delivers it to your door? If not home will they leave it or pick up from depot/post office?
Mine didn't arrive yesterday which was the "expected" delivery date. Shipped on the 16th June.

lets just add this here - since its about UK delivery and times....


MYMEMORY.COM - sent 24 June UK - arrived Sydney 2 June. Thats about average and the same for my Amazon UK deliveries.


As for the 'packaging' - a parcel pack envelope with padding - and then additional bubblewrap around the cover itself. Can't complain for the FREE shipping.

You can also add to that dvd.co.uk. All my orders which shipped on a Monday arrived the following Monday via Royal Mail. They also have a flat fee for postage of $2 (AUD) per disc. It's a pretty good deal.
