Aliyah Tip : Surprising Things about Deliveries

Things are different in Israel.  Even deliveries!   For example, if you buy something and arrange for delivery on a given day and it is 6:00 pm and they did not show up yet, do not despair.  They likely will be there before bedtime!

Let's say you are expecting Fed Ex. You can actually call and get the delivery driver's cell and find out when he is expected.

In some locations the house number markings are hard to find or non-existent.  To reduce the confusion, quite often the delivery person will call and ask you to stand at the street next to your home.

It's such a warm sunny day it's almost like spring!

Aliyah Tip : Shipping Issues with BBQ's and Bikes

Recently two new policies were past regarding the shipping of BBQ's and bikes:
BBQ : Israeli Customs is now requiring a "Teken" (Approval from Ministry of Standards) or a "Ptor" (Exemption from the approval) for ALL gas grills (Bar-b-ques) imported, even as personal import. Any import shipment containing a gas grill will be pulled for inspection, and the grill will be held by customs until the approval or exemption is issued. Of course, charges for the inspection/ removal, and storage of the gas grill will be billed to the owner of the goods. 

Bike : The Ashdod Customs House has decided to inspect any import shipment with a bicycle, to ensure that the bicycle is not motorized. Motorized bicycles require approval from Ministry of transportation. Charges for the inspection are billed to the owner of the goods. This only affects shipments arriving to Ashdod (for now). 

Efforts are being make to revoke these rulings, but until that happens, you may want to consider leaving your BBQ and bike(s) behind.
