Q: What is the fastest way to get something delivered from Canada to China?

I lost a part from something and need a replacement fast. What is the fastest way of getting something to China. Regular mail should be up to 10 days anywhere else in the world. Expresspost/ courier should be 5 days, but not to my experience in China and this isn't fast enough. I need something yesterday. It's health related. What would you use?

Ups says they have three day air but they would probably get delayed five days

So your best bet would probably be to bribe someone witch I do not condone

Carry it on the plane with you.. or your friend.

 

If it's "health related", and urgent... I'd seriously consider looking at other countries around you to get what you need, and go to get them. HK or Thailand if you're lucky.. or go east to Taiwan or Japan - even South Korea.

 

I can't think of any other options that can get something from any country overseas in past Chinese customs in less than the 5 days you're talking about!

American Express or DHL to Hong Kong.  Go to Hong kong and pick it up.  I used to do that to renew my travel visa.   3 day turnaround, which means you can probably get it delivered next day.

well, he needed it 3 years ago yesterday... is that grammatically correct sentence? or should I say, He needed it yesterday, 3 years ago... though, none of the two sounds right.

As a fellow Canadian, I would like to wish well. 

 

As other have recommended, try UPS, Fedex, etc...

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
