DHL

By

Verified Buyer


There are some interesting comments regarding DHL from other Canadian customers. The online advisory showed that DHL would be contacting me regarding duties and additional charges. They are not as fast as FedEx in that regard. When nobody had called me by mid-morning I found the right section of their Website and paid these charges online, which released the package. I think FedEx does a better job on the admin end...FedEx phones promptly to arrange for payment. But if using DHL as a shipping co makes it more worthwhile for StewMac to offer StewMax to Canadian customers, I will get used to it now that I know the onus is on me to find out about any extra charges and duties payable. Thanks for making StewMax available to Canadian customers.

Fed Ex is the fastest

By


Since I have been doing business with Stewmac I have used Fed Ex, place and order at 3:30 pm and it's in my hand the next day usually by 11:00 am. The only ploblem with Fed Ex is their tracking it's not up to date I have received delivery and the tracking show it hasn't arrived in Ottawa.

Best Shipping Time Yet

By

Verified Buyer


I bought the Stewmax because it was cheaper than the postage for a Nut and Saddle Vise to Canada and any future shipping would be free. My order was shipped Mar 24/19 and was received Mar 28/19. This was shipped via Stewmax Standard so I was not expecting it for at least two weeks so when it came this fast I was pleasantly surprised to say the least. It came via Fed Ex . If my future orders come this fast I will give another glowing review. This has been the fastest shipping I have ever received from the States bar none. Totally Impressed.

The STEWMAX free shipping initiative is an excellent one and well worth the cost for the luthier and repairer.

Ordered 3 parcels since stewmax. First one ordered Jan 29 - Received Feb 28. Second one ordered Feb 4 - Received March 5th. I thought they were lost it took so long. Parcel 3 Sunday February 24th - I wanted it faster than a month so I payed the expedited $26 . It got processed late on Tuesday the 26th, not Monday. It's late evening March 5th and I still don't have it ,as I've just found out DHL needs the customs/duties payed before leaving Ontario (where it arrives form the states). Why it took them until today to notify me of this (4 days in Ontario) is unacceptable, when all the times I've ordered from Stewmac (prior to Stewmax) the Item has arrived at my workplace in the noted time and I've payed the fees right at the door. Stewmac had a great thing going with their prior shippers. Why they are dealing with DHL especially for the more expensive expedited is a wrong move, (at least on the Canadian end) especially if you are in a time crunch.

Response from StewMac


Hi Jamie,

Thank you for your review and feedback. We are sorry to hear that your deliveries since joining StewMAX have been problematic. We do use various shipping methods according to the size of the package and destination, as we do for non-StewMAX packages as well.

Here is some more information about our shipping providers to Canada specifically:

“StewMAX Standard” free shipping is very similar to the International Airmail choice we have always offered to Canada. 90% of these packages arrive within 2 weeks, though some may take longer. If the package is particularly heavy, we may use FedEx Economy, which delivers within 5 days. Regarding “StewMAX Expedited”, we recently began testing DHL as an express option to Canada. The feedback you provided is very helpful to us for this test. We are monitoring this service closely to make sure it meets our expectations and yours.

Thanks for extending this service to Canadian customers. It is very good value. I would say that it has already paid for itself the first day.

less expensive than shipping!

less expensive than shipping!
Why not? It's paid in one order! (at least for canadian customer)
I would prefer that the shipping would be with USPS instead of DHL as it's complicated. In a remote location like me, they use contractor to do their delivery, and they won't come to my door, I have to go meet them in the village. Even more if I paid the extra for fast delivery, it's not faster, just more expensive.
It's not StewMac fault so I gonna give 5 stars!

Response from StewMac


We are glad you like StewMAX, but are sorry that you had to pick up your package, rather than it arriving at your door. We will inquire about that with DHL, as that is not supposed to happen. We use various methods for shipping to Canada including USPS, FedEx and DHL, depending on the package size and destination location.

Dan erlwine is a creative master overcoming disasters

To learn how well reasoned and rational Dan's techniques that are being used is reassuring, aside from being informative, and help sustain the drive to keep a basket-case old Tele alive ( or any guitar, for that matter). He is a quintessential artist, procurator, and should be considered for the Rock and Roll Music Hall of Fame. Besides him, the inventory at Stew-Mac is insurmountable with some much more ingeniously diverse materials and tools of the trade.
