I've never had a problem with them at all. I always do the cheapest shipping with them. And it's always at my door in 2 days. Sorry. Call Greg he will make it right.

Lots of good clear, concise shipping info there. Ordering "before 5 PM" does not guarantee same day shipping. If your order arrives without adequate time to process and pack before the FedEx truck arrives, it doesn't make it on the truck. Note that FedEx comes to them, they don't take the packages to FedEx.

Vendors don't make money on shipping. The shipper does.

How does a package arrive at an intermediate destination before the actual local time? Easy. It is called a schedule. Shipping these days is not haphazard, it is a well orchestrated process. Shippers know where their stuff is and when it will arrive. Note also that even if your package arrives at the local shipping agent's office a day or two early, they won't necessarily deliver it a day or two early.

I watched a package sit at the local UPS office for two days because it "wasn't scheduled to be delivered until Friday."

You weren't ripped off. Your order simply arrived too late to be fulfilled and make it to the truck that day.

Maybe you should run your own retail business and ship world-wide and see if you can do better.

Very well said.

I think this might be the problem the op is referring too.

Just saying.

depends on who and what day you overlook the operation, some days they can be a fine tuned machine, more often than not , the left hand dont know what the right hand is doing,
i guess what i was getting at is , maybe heli direct should give the apox times for delivery before you choose your shipping option, amain does it , so that way when i pay 30 bucks for shipping ,i know what im paying for, just wanted to see if i was out of my mind with how things are going or if it were just me,. altho you pose a good arguement dksemale , it seems like the best option now is to use amain , and forget about HD,, it also seems like defective things come out of HD alot

I thought I was alone on this issue with hd. At times they seem to choose which carrier for me when I clearly input what I want. This has screwed me up a few times even as far as having to take a day off of work only to find out at end of day my package would be rescheduled for another day."R.I.P Roman" Citizen 0094 in the Nation
