I am thinking about using Walkthrough or Express Tier to jump all tiers that are awaiting to be opened within a month.

I have used Express many times but I never used WalkThrough.   My understanding is that FMV value is 3%.  The minimum fee is $150 and $5000 maximum.

My book is about $650 so it should be $19.50 but that would jump to $150 minimum fee for using WalkThrough Tier.  If I have $6000 value book, it will be $180 fee.

Anything under $5000 will be automatically to $150 minimum fee.   Just check.   More likely that I will use Express Tier.

Thanks. I just want to make sure I understand what you are saying. It doesn't say delivered. It says "arrived at post office". Is that what you mean?

Your package is within CGC confines right now so your fears can be alleviated. However, it's been taking them three weeks to open packages so feel free to maintain annoyance at the lack of movement for weeks to come.

Cool. I was actually fully expecting this reading what people were posting. I was thinking this would be on top of the three weeks it takes them open packages. My plan is to forget these books exist. Of course like most of plans I expect it to fail miserably.

I have 49 prescreen moderns stuck and received since 1/27, so I called cgc today. They didn't seem to know why there hasn't been any movement. They said they would email me back on what's going on but never got an email.

I have an invoice submitted same day, same tier of service. Still sitting at SFG. 
wonder how much of a gap in time there will be between the two.

Customer service has been less than helpful lately.

Can you upgrade to fast track after the item is received?

In rare cases they will accommodate you. But, the clock is reset to when you make the change. At least that’s how it worked for me in the past.

I’m actually considering not having my presser send in my books right now.  It’s already costly for me for 25 moderns without Fast Track.  These wait times are disgusting. :ohnoez:

Even walkthrough is taking longer then  they are saying.  Maybe we need a new tier. Super walkthrough lol min fee $300 max 3% fmv.

Or they can introduce a new Super Duper Walkthru Variant Edition tier for a mere $3k minimum price tag, where the CGC employee flies out to your house to pick up the book, and then hand delivers it back to you fully graded/encapsulated before midnight that same day. Either that or the CGC graders show up at your house with the encapsulation equipment to grade the books in your garage, while you drink your coffee in the kitchen. "Hey guys are you done yet, I need to go out and pick-up some groceries?" "Just about, but the lighting in your garage sucks. Do you have some more lamps so we can spot these defects better?" "Sorry, that's all I have. Just do your best. If you can't see the creases, then maybe there are none."

You still need 3 graders though. That's where uncle Mike and his bowling buddy come in.
