i needed some magnets for my gov so i wen tto heli direct. i get the mags orderd and they have multiple shipping options. i was trying to decide between 1st class and priority. 1st was around 2.50, for(2-5 days) and priority was around 6.50 for (2-3 days). i chose priority because i wanted the mags by mon or tues; after paying my bill, they state my order will arrive in 2-5 days, what. thought i would share that with them you may get 1st class mail after paying priority rates.

When you say "express mail" -- you mean first class ???? In my experience HeliDirect has the fastest order process and shipping in the Biz !!

you have to take into consideration that the 2-5days for 1st class and 2-3days for priority is the TRANSIT time the mail will take once it's shipped from them. The order processing could take extra time therefore making it the 2-5 day time frame.

It's Chevy's Fault!!!!

it shipped today though, so the transit time should be 2-3 days, not 2-5

Maybe if you waited until it actually arrived before you started bitching or had some experience with life you would realize that if they already shipped its not there fault. It now lies with the post office. If you paid for priority and they shipped today you will most likely have in 2-3 days but even the post office says it can take up to 5 days for priority but even if it does take 5 days its still the post office at fault.

I agree you are whining about something that's not even happened yet.

If you selected and paid for Priority Mail, then all is well and you will have the item in 2-3 days.

I don't want to take anything away from Heli-Direct. But dude if you needed the magnets that bad you should've just popped into Radioshack.

helidirect has always been one of the fastest shippers in the business for me, them and readyheli. Just wish heliproz would learn a thing or two from them.

ok,if it is going to take 2-5 days, then guess what, when you select priority mail it should say 2-5 days not 2-3. see, if it might take 2-5 days then it should say up front, by the priority option 2-5 days.
you pretty much are saying that heli direct knows that priority mail takes 2-5 days once they send something out; oh wait then that means they should put the priority option as 2-5 days not 2-3!!
maybe if you had life experiance you would think before you speak

In three years of ordering--- I have found "priority mail has been 1 day minimum- 3 day maximum and "first class mail" has been 2 day minimum and 5 day maximum. The quickest way to aquire parts however is from your LHS-- if your fortuate to have a good one close-by

Priority mail is great. It always arrives a couple days before they say. Also Heli Direct is the best.

Holzback, I know the guys at heli Direct. They will get your order right out. Their inventory management is excellent, if it says in stock 99.99% of the time it is (no one is perfect). Only thing to remember is that it is later in the day here in new england than where you are, so if your order was placed to late to ship same day it will go out the next day.

Your fun starts here!
