Lost my shipments during the Global Pandemic and it's really turn to headache
I been living in Germany for long time and ordered gears from all around the Europe for many years and there wasn't any problems. In beginning of January i moved to US (wasn't good time for it) but anyway, since i moved to US i keep placing orders from my EU sources and probably that was the mistake, since during the next 4 month i lost about half of everything that i paid for, another half took 3-4 month to receive. In June i decide to try to order from US sources (much more expensive, but if it's safe, then it's alright) and during the June and July i placed 5 orders and lost 2 of them and first of all I'm loosing the money again (some shops simply not covering shipments, if there is no seizing letter from custom) and it's for sure not safe to keep doing the same things, so i decide to take a break.
Now i nearly run out of my gear and planning to place another order through US source.
The question that i want to ask is not about source, cause there is a tonnes of sources. The question is, if anyone have the same situation?
