The CBCS Canada is at this point little more than a forwarding service. They'll receive the packages and gather enough to send a tote down to Dallas for a fee ( $X per package) and that's about it for their part on the receiving side.


If the package isn't opened, how do they know the difference between a customer submission and a delivery intended for the Oakville office? Should I have included something on the package to indicate it was a submission?

only deliveries to the Oakville office are submissions - it's a forwarding service run out of a warehouse, no other offices of business other than receive and forward. If it says CBCS Canada then it gets sent to Dallas

Thanks for the update Kat. I will be checking your updates to see the progress. I will be making my very first submissions soon so I'm super excited to get my grading virginity popped. Really excited to see the Oakville office operational and there's actually people working there even if it's super slow.

I'm looking at the submission form, is it $34 CAD to fedex back 7 books to you? Any other hidden charges I need to be concerned about?

Most likely it's in "Labels", Open the Invoice for your order it will tell you there.

Thanks but I opened the invoice - i.e. clicked on the link from the dashboard - and it still says "Grading" on the right, "Processing" at the upper left.

Rev 1. - I opened the pdf and it did say "Labels" so thanks for your tip.

it seems there is a bottleneck in production. last few orders I sent went from "grading complete" to "labels" to "shipped" within 2-7 days. @Elvinv post once your order has shipped so I have an idea of how long I'm waiting.

Anyone have an idea how long after your submission is delivered by USPS to Dallas (4/23) until your dashboard shows they have it?

I just get nervous when the tracking says “left with individual at address” and I wait for an update. 🤣🤣

Cgc has a tracker feature that shows if your package was delivered or not . Last time I checked it wasn't working lol

We've probably discussed this before but do you think that we'll see a drop in grading submissions after the market hype dies down ??🤔

I got an email today stating they received my second batch of books that I sent on March 30th. Just two days shy of thirty days.

Still waiting to see what's going on with the first batch I sent back in February

no extra fees when going through CBCS Canada - all the customs or brokerage stuff goes away!
Not sure on the return charges - for me CanPar is the cheaper option and of course I try to do batches in multiples of 5 to "reduce" the per book shipping - 7 books is same as 10!

My last order went ShipToCanada on March 11th. Based on the previous ShipToCanada time of roughly 2 months, that would put us at inside of 2 weeks before I see those glorious books. Gosh, I am excited.

All I know is it's kind of ridiculous at this point
Invoice says submitted
Dashboard says processing
Email said last week it was being finalized

At this stage I find it hard to believe anything

Processing is not a status. It will say Processing from the time its Received to the point of Shipped.

HELLS YES!! 6-1/2 weeks of worrying and BAM!!!

[We are happy to notify you that your CBCS submission has been received by the CBCS Receiving Department

We will send you email updates as the order moves along through the process.]


So, shipping to CBCS Canada takes approx 6.5 weeks to get to the processing stage once they receive it in Ontario. Honestly a huge worrying weight was just lifted off my shoulders today. It's a good day now, lol.

TIME TO SHIP MORE!! WOOO!!!

Feels like I've been stuck in labels for weeks....Order from December 30th.

Another Order sent to CBCS Canada on March 27th still "Submitted"...

Both via Canada...

It seems that ShipToCanada is currently a 2 month process. Have any Canadian slabbers sent direct to Dallas recently? Do you get your books back any faster?

this is the first time it said processing, before it stated grading for 3 weeks

Every day I log into my dashboard to see if the "processing" status has changed since they've received my books, and it hasn't since February 4th.

Today, just for fun, I clicked the link to the order which expands the list of books submitted, and I noticed the books have changed from being "Received" to "Grading"!

I have no idea WHEN this took place.

Regardless, I'm happy to see movement
