I received a letter in the mail a week later and they told me that I would be receiving a cheque for the amount/declared value (filled out on the custom form) for the item. Less than a week later I received a cheque for the item that was lost from Canada Post.

I hope this helps. The 75 days is a really long wait though.
great info... I am definitely filing this thread away for future ref.

Things do take a while to clear customs occasionally. I could be in the US in about 2 hours on the highway, but expect that things shipped to me will take 2-3 weeks on average, sometimes a week, sometimes 4-5 weeks. It's pretty random.

Lightbulb!! mama! just what I needed!

now I feel like I can ship with confidence- thanks all!
