I hope it works out for you that way. I've been in ShipToCanada mode for 7 weeks now. It was four weeks ago that they confirmed my mailing address and said it would be shipped that day or the next.

Hey everyone, I hope someone with a similar order can give a rough timeline of their process.

I sent an order that was received by CBCS Sept. 23rd, 2021 and shows on my dashboard as received by siad date.

7 books total, all VSP with 2 expanded and 5 modern.

I’ve read here that some orders are processing for about a year before grading but my invoice still only reads as received.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

@Buckets - Here is an excerpt from my posts that most matches yours:

Delivered to CBCS 9/20/21
#-----7374-MD - 8 comics Grade only/No Press - Completed/Ready for Pickup 9/12, In Labels 9/2, In Grading 7/16, Received - Total Grade only TAT = <51 wks or 244 Business days.


Yours has VSP, and the current estimate for VSP is 28 business days or 5 1/2 weeks, but I believe that the stated estimates are in excess of actual times, so I would guess that your submission will be completed prior to the end of October.

@WMorse Hadn't seen that before. Here's what's bonkers. According to the tracker, my February 2022 order has been verified and graded and is in the "production and processing" stage. My late November 2021 order is still in the "verification and grading" stage.

These two books were sent in once before and both were rejected.
Pressed them and re-submitted and voila.....

I will be re-submitting most of the 10 rejected books (after another press)....

That is super fast!!!!
They were just delivered 7 days ago and already in Heat Seal....

I have a June order that would be ahead of this one, but I slid in a 1974 book that has slowed that whole order... Oh well. It was worth it. It's Action 432 1st Bronze Age app of Silver age Toy Man.

Overall, the train is moving much faster... woo-woo-wooooo lol....

Add my voice to this forum.

Submission Date - 8/28/21
Services - Grading and VSP
Era - Modern

In Processing and Received for about a year. My assumption at the moment is that they have lost my comic book. There can be no excuse for the type of delays that this service is experiencing.

Requests for status emails go unanswered. Knowing what we now know, why would anyone ever submit to CBCS again? I know I will never use this service again and I will caution against its use to anyone who asks my opinion.

FINALLY!

Just received:

Your following CBCS submissions have been shipped:

Your submission has been shipped through your carrier of choice.



I'm somewhat disappointed in some of the grades... especially considering they pressed all 8 of my books, but I am happy to see they are finally making the trek home!

Order made: November 11, 2021

Order arrives at Canadian Hub (RIP): November 19, 2021
Order Arrives in Texas: February 1, 2022

Modern part of order entered grading June 29,2022. So, I would say I am a bit surprised based on the info here I really wasn't expecting anything moving on to grading until the late summer or fall.Not sure what is going to happen with shipping when this is all done what with no hub up here anymore. I will not pay them one cent more than I already have.


Moved to slabbing. No idea how long this has been taking lol. While not happy with the TATs I have to say I likely won't be waiting as long as I anticipated.


Moderns in QC and vintage in shipping.


Ship to Canada status now so an indeterminate amount of time later they may actually ship out. Yay!


Got a call from CBCS a few minutes ago to confirm which address to ship to. So I guess they will ship out today or tomorrow. That light is getting much brighter. While I am critical of the TATs right now all and all my order didn't take as long as I expected. For those who's book are in shipping my books have been there for about 3 weeks so hopefully that gives you guys some hope of movement soon. YMMV


Got the shipping notification. Pleased with the grading on my books, all moderns, all not pressed as I don't care so much about squeezing every last cent out of the books. My Friend's book are the GA's
