How Long are Sex Doll Shipping Times During Coronavirus (COVID-19 Pandemic 2020)?

How Long are Sex Doll Shipping Times During Coronavirus (COVID-19 Pandemic 2020)?

Are you currently worried about shipping times during the novel coronavirus pandemic? We decided to make this article for you.

 

As a sex doll company who has been through the pandemic for the last eight weeks, we have enough information to clearly explain how supply chains are affected and how long you should expect to wait for you sex doll from the moment you order.

 

In summary, shipping times for sex dolls during the coronavirus are usually between 1-3 weeks long. If you add the 1 week production time for your custom sex doll, the overall expected wait time for your order during the pandemic is 2-4 weeks long.

 

To find out more about how supply chains have been affected and how this affects you, as well as for some of our real examples, keep reading this article.

 

Reduction in Flights

Due to the coronvirus, there has been a huge reduction in international flights. This has created a supply deficit in regards to the demand for international shipping.

 

From the financial times: "Air freight capacity, meanwhile, has suffered severely from the cancellation of passenger flights. “What people often overlook is it’s passengers upstairs and freight below,” Prof Wilding says. “That has meant a ramping up of the cost of air freight.”"

 

This means that the prices for international shipping have increased by an average of 2.2x the regular price.

 

These prices are expected to be maintained for at least a year while the pandemic slows down around the world. All sex doll distributors have increased their prices to be able to maintain a profit during the pandemic, however, to stay competitive, the profit margins have gone down drastically in the industry.

 

As a consumer, you can expect to pay more than you usually would for a sex doll and discounts will not be as attractive as they usually are.

 

From a shipping time perspective, due to the decrease in flights, there has been a slight increase to the average shipping time for international purchases of sex dolls.

 

Before the pandemic, the average shipping time was approximately one week. Now due to the reduction in flights, the average shipping time is two weeks, which means double what you would expect in the pre-COVID era.

 

However, two weeks does not seem like a high number. There are many factors for that:

 

  1. Delivery is an essential service. This means that governments have done their best to maintain transportation across the world to ensure that supply chain impacts are minimal.
  2. Transportation goes to the highest bidder. For shipping companies, if you are willing to pay the exorbitant shipping prices, then they will ship your product on the first available flight.
  3. A lot of countries are opening back up which means that there will be a lot more workers available. Shipping times should only go down with time as things slowly but surely go back to normal.

 

Production Times

Production times are mostly unaffected. This is because most factories are in Asia where the coronavirus response was effective and quick. The pandemic has slowed down drastically and factories are operating with social distancing rules but are able to produce almost as quickly as before the virus erupted.

 

Before the virus, the average production time was two days. Now the average production time is five business days. Here at Sex Doll Queen, we have always promised a production time of approximately one week and therefore this part of our business has been mostly unaffected.

 

Can Coronavirus Be Transmitted Through Sex Dolls?

This is one burning question that we have decided to include as part of our article on the coronavirus shipping times. We find that the question is highly relevant to any discussion regarding the impact of coronavirus on the sex doll industry.

 

The short answer is no, the chances of catching coronavirus from a sex doll are minimal. You have a much higher chance of catching the virus from the delivery man than the product itself. As long as you apply appropriate social distancing measures, you should not come in contact with the virus.

 

According to this study by researchers at the National Institutes of Health, Princeton, and the University of California, Los Angeles, the COVID-19 remained virulent on surfaces for a lengthy period: from up to 24 hours on cardboard to up to two or three days on plastic and stainless steel.

 

For sex dolls with shipping times of over a week, this means that the chances of finding traces of coronavirus on the product itself is virtually zero.

 

Can My Doll Be Damaged from Long Periods in Delivery?

Storage is a very important question for most sex doll enthusiasts, if your sex doll is stuck for 2-3 weeks, then she is basically being stored. Does this mean that there is a potential damage to the doll?

 

The answer is no. The manufacturers of sex dolls make sure that the sex doll is appropriately protected in the packaging and that there are no pressures on the joints. There is always appropriate padding around the doll to preserve the skin and prevent heavy pressure. She could stay for months in the box without any potential damage.
