    How long does it take you to get orders from B&H in Boston? I lived there a long time, then lived in NJ (only took a day there). Just curious. Thanks.
     
  2. If I order by 3 or 4 PM, I generally have it in 1-2 days, w/ standard UPS shipping. It comes out of their Brooklyn warehouse I believe. I'm about 25 miles west of Boston (so closer to Brooklyn), but don't think that would it make a huge diff.

    Did you mean Brookline?
     
  4. He means that 25 miles west of Boston is closer to Brooklyn than Boston.

    I would say it depends how far the UPS shipping center is in relation to you.

    When I lived in Chestnut Hill, it would sometimes take an extra day to receive a package.

    UPS ground shouldn't take more than 3 business days from New York to Boston. (but it could)
     
  5. Yes, thanks Dan...I'm also the next town (Ashland, MA)over from a truck dispatch/distribution point and, 2 towns over from a major regional hub (Shrewsbury, MA). So all those factors probably contribute.

    Back in the 80s and 90s I ran through Ashland once a year.

    Generally B&H takes 2 days if ordered before 3 or 4.
     
  8. I'm about 50 miles south of Boston and my B&H orders have never taken more than two days to arrive.
     
  9. I did too (FUH), and we currently live in Holliston. :smile: As Chris said, generally 1-2 days with standard UPS ground.

    Been said, in fact I once ordered 2 day air and it took longer than standard UPS normally does from there.
