How long should it take for a pair of shoes to arrive from Total Cycling (Northern Ireland) to the east coast? I ponied up for the DHL shipping option over the parcel option.

Thanks,

-Jeff

It took less than a week for a Look frame to get to Hawaii.
I used the parcel Force method

Jeff i've ordered twice from T.C, both times DHL. they backordered my wifes shoes the first time but never told me, and it took 2 weeks. the second time they had everything and I got the order in 4 days,maybe 3. you will get your stuff though.I was a little freaked about ordering overseas, but they are legit.
Thanks - let's hope the shoes are in stock. (nm)jtferraro

... depending on the day you ordered (weekend or holiday)... three days (it should breeze through customs)...

Be the bike.

I ordered very late on a Sunday, about 7:30-8:00AM Monday Ireland time. My Look HSC3 fork arrived 11:00AM Wednesday here in California.
Impressive.Going forward,TC sounds like a great place to shop.nmjtferraro

The place is legit and all the parcels I've gotten from them are packed together with great care and padding so stuff doesn't get damaged. Shipping sometimes is quick but other times may take rather long (that's just life in mail-order land if can't accept that buy from a LBS instead). Therefore personally I never spring for the DHL rate. However, my last order was shipped by DHL nevertheless...maybe because he felt guilty that it took so long:)
Thanks for all the replies, everyone! =) (nm)jtferraro

Same with me: I ordered shoes/pedals on Tuesday and had them on the bike by Saturday afternoon. This was using the Parcel Force shipping option, which I think was a total cost of $16.

These guys have awesome prices, great service, and the products that I've ordered are all real and legit.

At first I was a bit suspicious ordering from an overseas mail-order place, via the internet, that was offering such low, low prices.... Sounded too good to be true. But took a chance and everything turned out perfect.... Will definitely order from them again.

ditto the above positive experiences with TC. Somehow, they are faster shippers than the domestic on-line shops.
second thatSao

I've gotten something in a few days and I just received something (bunch of chorus gear) that took about 9 days. If you call, they'll tell you what's in stock. 3 or 4 orders and no problems at all.
