    Hey all,

    I recently bought a bass from a reputable seller in Poland and I've been tracking the UPS shipping number .... for the last few days the status has been "Held in Warehouse" and when I dig a bit deeper the UPS app shows

    6/12 = Warehouse scan
    6/13 = Warehouse scan



    Do any of you have experience with this status? This is the first bass I'm buying from an overseas seller and I've never seen "Held in Warehouse" as a UPS status before.

    Anybody know if this is normal or how long this could be tied up? - Thanks

    If it was shipped non-priority, there can be relatively long gaps in the tracking progress. Also tracking descriptions seem to vary by country. It might be too soon to panic. :)

    I suspect it's at a UPS cross-dock in Warsaw waiting for enough other packages going to the destination country to fill a skid.

    Did the seller correctly fill out all the necessary paperwork and include them with the package?

    Yes, he's sold dozens of basses including internationally ... I checked out his references and I've been speaking with him for months too. He's a good guy and it's not him, It's a UPS thing .....I'm a patient man and I have a couple of other basses to keep me playing while I'm waiting :)..... I JUST WANT IT ALREADY and because I've never seen that UPS status before it's making me (slightly) nervous ..... I'll reach out to UPS tomorrow if there's still no movement.

    I'd wait until end of day Monday. If still no progress, then I'd start worrying.

    When I shipped something to a buyer in India, it took six weeks for it to arrive. Once the package hit India (in about a week) there were no tracking updates at all. Lucky for me the buyer was cool about it.

    I'd contact UPS - it does seem a bit odd to have it scanned 3 days in a row.
    Hopefully it's just some sort of computer glitch, but it'd do no harm to let them know you're aware it's just sitting there.
