    Shipping Method Safety and Time

    I was wondering what the safety and the speed of the following shipping methods are from Japan to America.

    EMS
    SAL
    Air
    Sea

    I know sea is the cheapest, but is it safe and is it going to take like months??? Thanks!

    It takes ~ 2 months for the items to be shipped for the sea but cheapest. EMS takes about 3-5 days and safest since it gives you tracking code. Most expensive but is not once it gets up to a certain weight. Then, it's same as airmail or even better.

    If you are shipping expensive stuff, then send it by EMS or have insurance on it.

    SAL takes longer than air mail, doesn't it? (At least, according to the services I use.) It usually takes a few weeks... a little under a month. In terms of safety, I've used it many times before and it's worked out fine, but it could depend on where you're buying from and where it's being shipped to.
