    No, there's no custom fee. But if you are not lucky to be checked by custom, it would have this fee for clearence.

    Just for suggestion:

    DHL,FEDEX,UPS,TNT,HKEMS--it will take about 2-3days after they left Shenzhen or Hongkong.
    EMS(Chinese)--almost one week.
    Others: from 5-10days.

    Except Britain and Chinese bank holiday.

    ----I worked in logistics industry for more than 5years.

    Yes, the information I was lead to said it was to deliver in a month! However, it arrived two days ago!​

    We can't possibly tell you the answer to that if you don't know how it's being sent! How much did you pay for shipping?

    ^^^ as lovinit states

    if you pay enough you can get same day shipping in the UK
    if you pay enough you can get next day delivery in the EU

    my last China delivery that was "free" shipping

    SHIPPING IS BUILT INTO THE PRICE NOTHING IS FREE !!

    was dispatched China time 16:47pm on Saturday 9th March 2013

    was delivered UK time 14:18pn on Tuesday 12th March 2013

    which is one working day, im not sure you could get special delivery quicker

    My order has been sitting at the airport in China for over amonth wai ting for air space. There is a limit to the number of flights possible and as more orders are being placed with China suppliers the waiting time will, presumably, just get bigger. It doesn't look as though items ship in any particular order. Probably items which don't ship within a couple of days end up at the back of the warehouse until those placed infront have cleared. Shipping by sea may turn out to be quicker than air spending weeks at sea instead of week at an airport.

    most possiblely it's send by china post air mail or hongkong post air mail, chpeapper but will take much longger time
    I suggest you next time to take UPS which cost lower and comparatively quicker

    Hello i have recently signed up to this website.
    I have ordered a pair of trainers from a website called aliexpress. I am not sure how long it takes for things like this to be delivered here to the uk in Ipswich. Could anybody help me at all.

    Thank you

    If I'm not mistaken, there should have been an estimated delivery date at the checkout, or at least received a confirmation receipt? Where are they being delivered from?
