Remember, I am in Brazil - I've just buy some parts from MACs and it was send for an address in Miami, because a friend o'mine is there (Hotel). How long it will take to arrive in Miami? They used "Rush" shipping. I am afraid, he will be there just until
Aug 16th, then he left the hotel.
I am not sure what is meant by "rush shipping" it could mean that MAC's expedited their handling and sent the parts by normal mail, which could take days. Or it might mean the sent it as quickly as over night which is expensive.
See if there is a USPS tracking number It might give you an arrival target.
Also make sure the hotel knows that it is coming
Macs used to take 3-5 days just to pull the order. If they sent it by UPS standard ground, it could take six days after that to reach the hotel. If you requested "USPS Priority Mail" or some premium shipping, it should take about three days to get to the hotel. How long it sits there is any one's guess.
I quit ordering from Macs because it took 10-14 days (counting the weekends) to get anything from them. Hopefully, the new owners have made an attempt to shave some days off of that.
Did you explain to Mac;s that it HAD to arrive before the 16th? I work for a company that supplys old Buick parts all over the world and we often have overseas customers call with an address in the US and they time of their stay. We ship in what ever method that makes the deadline, even if we only have a 24 hour warning.
Bottom line get a tracking number! If they have not shipped then impress upon them that the delivery is time sensitive.
My experience with having parts sent to a hotel in USA for a guest to pick up is -if the party is not a guest at the time of parts arrival they will send it back to the sender the next time the mail service deliverers there.
I finally got tracking numbers and I also realized they sent by UPS last week, and both scheduled delivery is in our
guess period in Hotel, let's cross fingers! Thank you all.
We have never had a package returned from a hotel.
We make sure the guests name and arrival date are on the outside of the package. Yes we have had some hotels pigeonhole the package, but when we supply our customer with a tracking number and a proof of delivery the package has magically shown up although one hotel manager did allude to the termination of employment of an employee.
