CBCS Graded

Just got an email from customer service saying all 3 of my orders are in the "pre-grade stage".

So, basically, they have just been received right? I sent the earliest order back in December 2021, but based on this thread, CBCS is just now getting to October orders of 2021? Is that correct?

So 34 weeks ago? I should see some movement soon, right?

CBCS royally fumbled the ball CGC handed to them these last two plus years. I wouldn't be surprised at all if the guys behind them, EGS, PGX, etc. Start passing them.

CBCS needs a sugar daddy like CGC got.

They've definitely fumbled the ball more than Brett Favre.

After 2 years it's about time to stop with the words of "Here's what's going to happen" and to start doing and get it done. And I don't mean instituting another Express or Super Express or Super Duper Express. Thank you sir, may I have another.

Customer Service, Standard TAT addressing, Clear and Concise information from the company (including dashboards), Pressing less than 2 years TAT
Then go with the Express services; not vice versa.

So far, way ahead of my last submissions....obviously not economical on a giant order, but so far so good


Update- order went into grading, completed and shipped...this is actually quicker than the 3 weeks quoted for express plus and sig verification...
Worth it for my piece of mind, but it's not my business so I can see where it would not make sense financially.

Exactly.#soon just doesn't cut it. Unless CBCS start to deliver they will slip into irrelevance. Upset customers and the competition aren't the problem, CBCS is their own worst enemy.

Right...
That will never happen. EGS & PGX could merge and that still won't happen..

They are all over the map with what is getting graded. My order, that didn’t arrive in Texas from the defunct Canadian hub, went into grading late last month. (They sat in Canada for 2.5 months.) If you look at people’s reports here you can see there’s no real pattern.

CGC Economy (Vintage) now at 10 months and counting. Still "Scheduled for grading". No press, no screen, just grading.

CBCS has gotten back four of five Expanded (Vintage) orders in that same time period, the fifth is at Grading now.

To give further color on overall TAT's that include pressing, just saw status change (in Bold) when checking Invoice hyperlink in dashboard. These two submissions moved to Grading on 6/23 and 6/24 of 2022. Looks like Expanded/Vintage moving a little faster in the Pressing Room than Modern but the same in Grading Room.

Delivered to CBCS on June 8th 2021 in two separate boxes. (All standard, w/out any FAST P's and one with VSP added).

5 of the 11 had press completed within 43wks,
1 of the 11 had press completed in 44wks,
1 of the 11 had press completed in 45wks,
1 of the 11 had press completed in 49wks,
1 of the 11 had press completed in <50wks.
2 still in pressing room (most likely completed, just not updated to grading yet)

Just received two emails from CBCS that my Vintage order and my Modern order (4 books in each all with Press Screening) have been graded and will be put in cases and 'will only be here a short time before it ships out!'

My invoice went from processing to grading on July 14th. Then went to Heatseal on July 20th. Now the invoice says grading again.

Books received in Oakville June 10, 2021.

The end is near! (Hopefully).

This is exactly what happened to me. I thought when it went from Grading to HeatSeal that it was being put in cases. So the next email I was expecting was that they would be ready to go. I hope the end is near too. It has been a year and two months total. We shall see!
