Quick question about shipping

Post by Duo » Sat Mar 24, 2007 11:07 pm

Ok.. so I've been surfing HLJ and Rainbow 10 lately and I've noticed that both sites seem to favor different shipping methods...

HLJ seems to like SAL shipping and R10 seems to like EMS...

Can anyone tell me the difference, and which you prefer?

R10 will ship SAL if you ask them too. In fact, I never got the impression they prefer EMS over SAL.

Anyway, EMS is fast and trackable, but it costs a lot. Also, you can get insurance for it.

SAL will typically take 3 weeks or so, and it's not trackable, but it's cheaper. I don't think you can insure SAL packages.

Me, I always use SAL when buying from HLJ or R10. If I wanted something really badly and can't wait, I'll buy from a US retailer.
