It seems my lucky days are over.

I just need somewhere to rant because this situation is ridiculous and not something I needed on a Monday dajfajljg

For some reason, the Nijisanji Kuzuha nendoroid is classified as "restricted commodity" by someone from the customs office (why? because he has guns?? I don't know, it's the only reason I can think of), and now... I have to go all the way to the other side of town that's even FURTHER away than the post office (at the airport!!!) to pick him up. The sole reason I have been using DHL is due to the fact that it's convenient and is delivered directly to my house. But it seems that's no longer the case, and I'm going to have to start picking it up from now on??

Now don't get me wrong, I am COMPLETELY fine with paying customs. That's not an issue for me at all. My issue is the fact that I chose a convenient shipping method, only for it to not be so convenient anymore and for me to have to go all the way to the middle of nowhere to pick up my shit. And they're requiring so many documents too, what the fuck. And they're only keeping it for 6 days, after which I'm going to need to start paying to have it stored there. And they're gonna charge me $300 to have it returned (which, oh hell no, I'm not returning that shipment). At least with EMS through the post office, I could keep my item there for as long as I need to. Now, I'm gonna have to find a way to get there somehow today because there's no way I'm free within the other days of the week.

This is such a hassle. I'm just so mad and stressed right now because this never happened before, and because this is just so much more of a horrible situation than if I had my item delivered through EMS. I would have been completely fine if they had an online method or something set up for payment, but they don't - I have to go to the office physically and do all this physically and I'm just why did you inform me of this now, I literally cannot take a leave off work skgslghslkgh

I'm very worried now that I'm going to have to cancel all my other orders. I don't know why somehow I was hit with customs now of all times, when all my other much more expensive shipments were fine. Is it because that nendoroid has weapons??? Why him specifically? I also had Nobara in there, and yet she wasn't listed as a "restricted commodity". Are nendoroids just... offensive to this country or something??? SOMEONE MAKE IT MAKE SENSE SJKGHSJKGHSJHGJLSHGSLJGH

Yes i'm just typing out my panicked feelings right now don't mind me

S-Dawg1 month ago#103350813Customs are the worst, like, with a country full of illegal drugs and guns y'all worried about my 'plastic figure' and have to rip my shit up, keep it for 10+ days and charge me 30% + handling fees? Human embodiment of an anal fissure is what they are...
Honestly this is the only valid response

Gooey1 month ago#103331272For some reason I got really lucky and EMS only charged me customs on around %15 of my orders xD

I'm not really worried about the amount (customs here is 10% of the item total - not including shipping, but you get charged over $50), more about... the trip. It's literally 2 hours away OTL At least the post office is only (lmao "only") an hour away from my house, so the trip back and forth takes two hours. This one will take four. It's really rough ToT;;;;

dankprin1 month ago#103330775i feel you dude (when it comes to dhl issues). for some reason dhl can’t recognise my address through proxy shipping as of a week ago, which has never been an issue. there’s no explanation i can find, and i’m not sure if it affects my address when purchasing on other sites too, which is a worry -__-‘ ordered some christmas presents, so either everyone gets them 2-3 months late with surface shipping, or i pay extra and use fedex, which i have 0 experience with. idk if i should contact customer support to see why my address doesn’t exist, or to just wait it out and get charged weekly storage until it’s back.
your problems with them seem 200 times worse though, so i wish you luck! i’ve been having to cancel some ebay orders due to the sudden shut-off of japan post to australia, i hope your nendoroid and other orders don’t suffer the same fate!

Ahhh, thank you so much ;v; I don't think my problem is worse than yours though. I hope you get the problems with your address checked out and solved ;;'

Atsunome1 month ago#103330781It’s weird that they would classify it like that. I doubt it’s the fact the Nendoroid has guns, I was able to get both Homura (ITEM #75488) and Mami (ITEM #75590) delivered fine even with their many weapons.
Apparently, according to my dad's experience, we're 90% sure it's the cause. When his previous workplace had some pens with "gunmetal" components shipped, it was held by customs - because of the word 'gun' (even if it's obvious gunmetal has nothing to do with guns, but apparently customs just HAD to make sure). They probably looked up the description for Nijisanji, saw the word "submachine guns" and freaked out OTL

indian_summer221 month ago#103330719Usually customs and DHL are two separate things:One belongs to the government, the other is a private company. DHL deals with the customs office for you but if customs require more information or documents, DHL has to comply with that (=ask you to provide these).
Dont worry about the randomness though. At least here in Germany it seems to be like that as well. Probably depends on the mood of the respective officer. Might happen to any package really.


I'm beginning to think that's the case. I'm not mad at DHL at all, their customer service have been nothing but helpful and their driver assigned to me is a sweet old guy who takes good care of my packages. It's just that if they could make this so that I don't have to drive 2 hours to the middle of nowhere to get my package and require me to present 9000 documents (one of which I had to bother AmiAmi for, and they're only going to be able to send it to me within 1-2 days - not ideal, because I really wished I could have picked it up today, but it seems that's not gonna happen), that would be great.

I just. Wonder what could have set them off on Nijisanji specifically. The DHL agent said that it's him specifically that's a "restricted commodity". Not the Koto Nobara scale, not anything else in that package, but him. I just wonder WHY. Are nendoroids offensive? Are his guns offensive? WHYYYYY. gajglahgg they were probably "warning" me with the "repacked by DHL" tape from my last package to not buy so much shit and I didn't take the warning? Lmao I don't even know. I just hope I'll be able to pick it up this Saturday because this shit's ridiculous.
