I know that its does not sit in NB you MORON! I am saying its takes 2
days to get to NB from across the country and then 5-7 to get to NL
( that is delivered to the door)
The American example for your information was 5-7 day delivery ( I
know because I was there and assisted in placing the order)
Canada Post is a waste of taxpayers money, contract it out for those
that use it!
Oh and BTW I have paid for overnight several times and not once did it
arrive on time and guess what NO REFUND from Canada Post just excuses.
The only thing that they can deliver is junk mail for which they get
paid a fortune from the marketing firms....
Most ground courier services are the same as you are stating for Canada
Post. If you order a package via Purolator ground or UPS Ground from
Ontario, BC etc it typically arrives in New Brunswick within 2 days,
often within 24 hours. It then usually takes 3 to 5 business days to
make it from NB to St. John's. Purolator Air takes 1 day from Ontario, 2
days (typical) from BC. Air service via Canada Post (XpressPost) is 1-2
business days between major centres in Canada, for example Toronto to
St. John's is 1 day but Vancouver to St. John's is 2. I order a lot of
stuff from all over the country for my business so I have a lot of
experience with shipping options. Also things generally take an extra
day or so with all options in the winter months due to weather delays.
BTW if you use Canada Post XpressPost service, the stated delivery time
is guaranteed. Ie., if the stated delivery time on the website (lookup
using postal codes) is 2 business days and it takes 3, then call their
1-800 number and they will either issue a refund or give you a free
XpressPost mailer for next time. I've done this many times and have
never had to argue to get it.
Like anything, you get what you pay for. There is nothing fast about
'Expedited Parcel'. It is a ground service and Newfoundland is always at
the far end of any estimated delivery times due to our geography. If you
want something fast, pay the premium for air shipping and you shouldn't
have any trouble getting it within 1-2 business days between major
centres in Canada. Add at least 2 days if you are shipping to/from a
