Rant

Fedex has struck again


Well, it had to happen. I have been buying and selling on RCg for almost 3 years now, and have been very lucky in that nothing I bought has been damaged. Well, I bought a 3dhs Aspera here on the forums, and it finally arrived today. I must say that it took longer than USPS or UPS, I also had to wait an extra day due to "local weather conditions" ( That is another thing, I NEVER get teh package when it is supposed to be delivered. It is always "customer unavailable" or some crap like that )
So, the box shows up today, and I just happened to catch the driver before he dropped it off and left. When I stopped him and told him I wasnt pleased with the very apparent damage to the package and asked if there was something I could sign stating that the item was damaged, he told me that I should just contact the office and just tell them that the package was left that way.
This kind of stuff really angers me, and is exactly the reason I avoid Fedex at every chance.

I took the plane out of the box and it is a miracle that it is unscathed. I have gone over it and haven't found any damage. I cannot understand how that happened, but I consider myself lucky.
Anyway, I just had to rant a little... now I feel better

DHL is just as bad IMO. I always use UPS if I can because it usually costs about the same as USPS and gets here faster!

That sucks. Did you find out who stole it? or did it just get replaced from grayson hobby?

Oh, still sucks though... having to wait for that shipment again.


I ordered some fuses for a job one time. Even had them sent in emergency next day...etc. When they came in, all I got was an empty padded envelope with the bottom missing from it....
