Discuss deliveries.. for example i have so much coming in the mail one of my tracking says "scheduled for delivery today" then says "held at facility"????? I'm guessing i have another package coming so its being held till that other package arrives their so they dont need to make 2 trips??
Im waiting for...

It's just the estimated time, will be before then but will still take some time as Aussie post are SLOW. I've had things arrive from US/UK within days then take almost a week to be processed by Aus Post :(
Damn Aus Post, better not damage my headset too. :P

remember customs have to clear it as well
turns out the hard drive i sent back was the correct one but it was in a different foil wrapper. the description said manufacturer refurbished but i admit i did not see this before. my problem now is that do i trust this drive and/or seller?

if the manufacturer refurbished it it should come in one of their packets with a certification shouldnt it?

do i take the risk and trust this drive in my new ps3?

what to do please?? :E
I'd probably just try and run in via my comp first. See if it connects properly, see if it throws back and errors..

he has the hard drive now so i said that things seem a bit fishy with the wrong label and all that. pending a reply at the moment
Hmm where is the HDD from? Australia or overseas?

wollongong so its australia. its a guy running a business from his house i think.
What I'm waiting for:

2012 New Zealand Warriors NRL Away Jersey
Jurassic Park: The Game (PC DVD) - Deluxe Edition

Also, the box that my Sims 3 Hintbook Box Set came in had a sticker on it that said "Opened by Australia Post for inspection by Quarantine" but they didn't leave a note in the box to say that it had been cleared by Quarantine.
I've had that sticker before as well and no note saying,
"Hai your stuff is cool"

Not really about me recieving something, but me sending out a game. I did not want to make a new thread as it will probably be answered quickly anyways, but how do I go about sending out a game to someone?

Do I go to the post office and send it? Do I buy packaging and drop it off in the red post boxes? How do I go about getting registered post?
you go to the post office and send it. I believe you may be able to pre-buy the packaging but you'd have to drop it off at a post office for it to be registered. Thats as far as i know though.

LOLWUT?

you can buy bags and boxes for dvds or games just go in and look at whats on the shelf. then put the item inside the package. put address on the front and then hand it to the person behind the counter and ask for registered post.

pretty bloody easy mate
I have never sent anything in the post that's why I don't know what to do. :P
Thanks for the help.
Yeah it depends on how you want to send it. Over night/express bags cost the most. Normal bags with tracking, second, without tracking is even cheaper.
You can also buy a padded bag- with or without tracking- that's around the same price OR you can wrap it yourself in a brown paper, address it and then take it in to be weighed and stamped :D

Lots of options but one thing is always certain- Aus Post will try to get the most money out of you as they can as they are still one of the most expensive mailing systems in the world :D Oh we are so lucky.
heres some more details if you dont have a suitable envelope or packaging yourself.

go here to see what australia post offers in terms of parcels. there is a dvd box there:
auspost.com.au/...

then once you choose the item you can go to this other page and calculate the postage between different points. you just need the weight, dimensions and postcodes you are sending between. it will give you all the different options available.

auspost.com.au/...
