I HAVE AND ACCOUNT WITH UPS, AND SOMETIMES IT TAKES A DAY OR TWO, TO GET YOUR PACKAGE INTO THE COMPUTER. BUT BY THURSDAY, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE THIS "TRACKING NUMBER",THRU UPS. I ALWAYS REQUEST A "TRACKING NUMBER" AS YOU DID, TO MAKE SURE, THE THE UNIT IS "ON ITS WAY"...YOU CAN CALL UPS, ALSO. IF THEY DO NOT HAVE THE NUMBER, THEN CALL THE "SELLER",AGAIN, AND CHECK TO SEE IF YOU HAVE THE CORRECT UPS NUMBER, FROM HIM.....
I have seen those types of status updates before. It means that UPS has picked up your package, but no routing information has been updated beyond that. Sounds like your unit is being delivered via UPS ground. What is the typical delivery time from your seller to your house? Cross country (Seattle to NYC) could be up to 9 days. If you are really nervous, contact the seller again ... otherwise it should sort itself out in two days or so.
I have had that happen several times. Once because the seller dropped the item off at a kinkos or Mail Boxes Etc., to be packed by them, and they entered the UPS billing info, but took a while to actually pack it up and ship it. So that could be it, and I have had several packages that miss the scan thingy, whether it's at a transfer station, or just the pick-up spot, but they usually show up on time. The first situation, though, it should up a week late, because MBE didn't pack the thing and held it for a week or something. Go to the UPS tracking page and either call or email them your question. Once I checked and it said my package was in Indiana or something, been there a couple of days, so I sent UPS an email, and asked, "How come my package has been stuck in Indian for the last three days?", and the package showed up that afternoon, before they got back to me. And then I looked like a dumb A$$ because the reply said, "Uh, it's already delivered." I'd Call UPS and also the seller, they should be more than willing to work with you
I've had something like this occur twice - once with UPS, and the item had been sent to the wrong place, dropped, and largely destroyed by the time it got to me. Once with FEDEX, and the item was lost in their dist facility - where it sat for 3 days.
You should call them and ask them what's going on.
