am i the only one who gets a tiny bit frustrated having to pay 4 extra bucks to heli direct to get my stuff shipped in a more timely manner? if i dont pay then it takes them an extra couple days everytime, so it makes me think that they just dont even try unless you pay the extra cash. paying for faster shippping is not what really bothers me. it is the fact,that it seems, if you dont pay they make it a point not to ship when they could. i really like hd it is just something that bothers me a bit. with ready heli or other venders it is not an issue, the stuff comes as fast as when i pay hd for it. it is not a big deal it is just one of those things. i know i could not order from them but it is not that big of deal.

most of the time folks dont agree with me, that is fine, i just wanted to let it out.
thanks

paying rush processing i think just pushes you to the front of the line for them packing your box up.

personally i think its more of a "if you like us give us a tip" check box.

i have more complaints with UPS and the postal service.

Who cares... its just money...

that is understandable but, other venders dont have that option and they seem to be able to get stuff out. if i order from ready heli and heli direct at the same time i have to pay an extra four bucks for hd to get the packages same day. other vendors dont have this option and send just as fast.

I agree with the OP. The extra fee for timely shipping is sleezy. Although I am not a fan of the reward points scheme either. Give me a good dependable order/shipping and competive prices forget the rest

What??????????
I've been ordering for years with HD and most of the time my orders are over $100 and I use the free shipping and I always get an email that my order has been processed that day or the next. Most of the time I get my package in 2-3 days at the most. The other day I screwed up and did not change my shipping address to my new one with HD and I still got it in 4 days and that was after it was forwarded by the Post office.

Now here is the kicker, I asked the people at the post office what the real difference is in the shipping and they told me that all packages are handled the same but if there was no room on the truck or plane and you didn't pay the extra it will wait for the next one. This is not HD's fault.

I agree, I think it's only fair to ship the order in the same order it got placed. This is just a way for them to make a few extra bucks at our expense.

May be you are the only one with a "HELI DIRECT VENT"
Thought you invented somthing new (heli direct vent) , but allas no !!
I wish that on this forum people start to post technical facts and not B.S .
As far as I am concerned this subject should have been filled under "of topics" , and the same should go for " Nitro v.s Electric"

Are you talking about 2 day vs 3 day or boxing your order and having the shipper pick it up?

I'm completely with the OP on this also. And whoever coined the term "sleazy" hit the nail on the head. To me its almost like some of the other erroneous charges you see on your utilities bill only not mandatory, problem is, if you want the package in a speedy manner(we all do)you've got to kick in the extra cash so you're pretty well screwed anyway.

I dont care for helidirect and this "expedite" fee is one more reason I dont spend my money there unless I have too.

it's your option so if you don't like it, just don't stick it. They should ship all orders same day, but in case they have hundreds of orders on pile, they need to ship urgent ones like next day shipping first, those people should pick up those fedex overnight, next day first and then pick up your order, in case there are so many your order may not be picked until late of the day and may not be shipped that day. So it's an option you choose to guarantee your order is shipped same day. It's an option and you have the right to choose. so why vent?

Why vent?
Because its just another BS ploy to squeeze money from a customer and I for one dont feel I should have to pay extra to have my goods shipped in the order my purchase was made vs putting someone else ahead of me because they paid extra.
Helidirect can do as they please but they wont be earning my money if they continue with this practice.

i know i could not order from them but it is not that big of deal.
Then why the rant if its not that big of a deal?


Helidirect is awesome!

I've had them rush an overnight order. The package was on my doorstep 22 hours after I clicked submit.
Normal purchases with free shipping and no rush options is always three days from HD to my doorstep.
Either way is your choice!

Like Fusuno said, $4 is just an option. If you do not like it, then do not take that option. No one forces you to pay $4 out of your pocket.

Helidirect is one of the best online shops in my list. They have the top notch customer service.

May vendors guarantee your order ships the same day if you order is received by a certain cutoff time. Just order from one of those vendors.

Yes, if they force you to pay for it, then it's a ploy. If you have options to choose it and you are acknowledged of doing so then it's your choice. I think it's fair enough. Same with insurance, if they ask you to buy insurance, you said yes, then it's your choice, if you said no, then it's also your choice. It's all up to you.

the point is that other venders can do it, so why cant hd, why should i have to pay 4 bucks to motivate them? im sure other venders get just as many orders and they get them out. yes i could not pay the 4 bucks but then that is the difference between getting something on monday or tuesday vs friday or saturday could mean missing the flying weekend. i do like them and it is not such a big deal im going to stop buying from them, i just wanted to see is others felt the same, that is all. it is obvious they to it to make more money for a service that should be free.

The point is, if other vendors do it, then give them your business.
