    Damage report for Insurance claim - Laptop & Ipad in Durban area

    @Midnights_Ghost is correct. Confirm from your insurance if they will accept one from the above companies and they will do it for around R200. I know Matrix warehouse done a PC for me a few years ago for that price and they took a day.

    PM me. Might be able to get a hold of somebody at Gearbest to try help and resolve the issue. It is unfortunate that you are facing an issue and that is why I do advise as per the first post on this thread to never pay any other way except Paypal. Credit card would have been decent as well as...

    Sharp tools can be difficult to ship. For example, no knives can be shipped with Aramex/DHL. Buffalo will ship it though. Most likely was delayed due to stock issues and now problematic due to Corona.

    As far as I am aware, Coronavirus is the cause. Plus the backlog at Buffalo logistics seems to be bad so I believe GearBest/Banggood will continue once it stabilizes again and shipments are quick.

    Difficult to do using any online retail store. If you need, PM me and I can make a plan. Shipped items with batteries recently with no major issues. Just have to find a seller in China who has it and my forwarding company will handle the rest (after Chinese new years tho).

    I am not sure if they forcefully apply this rule. I am sure many people have imported more then 3 items for last year. I think they randomly give some people trouble though. In theory, they should have reset the counter.

    I have been to customs many times. They don't physically walk through the premises as they are many warehouses full of items. The items just go through the paperwork for customs clearance and at that point, Customs can decide to stop an item. I have cleared items at customs myself and the...

    Awesome. Happy that CBCU has released it. Don't see why they would have an issue with it. I got 2 packages that are showing "In Transit" but no email from Fastway in regards to delivery. Not sure where it is and if it will deliver. But sometimes it delivers and the site is not even updated.

    That is very odd for earphones. Was it sent with Buffalo or a different courier? I remember a while back where a shipment from Buffalo was details but then sorted out after a few days. With a courier, I would contact them to push for feedback as it should not a major issue. Do also confirm with...
