Can you spot whats wrong here?
I mean seriously, where the heck are they taking my package??
I'm not sure I follow. How far is Tallahassee from Pompano Beach? It arrived at PB at 5:42AM...could it still be delivered to Tallahassee by close-of-business?
It may just be all on distributing centers.
Be glad it is Fedex not UPS. 2 weeks ago, I bought that Clone helmet and blasters from Revolver, UPS tracking online said delivered, I got home it wasn't there. After bein on the phone for about a half hour, they told me it was at my back door. Considering I have a locked fence so they can't do that hahah! So I figured it was delivered to another house, and they tried contacting driver, blah blah blah. A neighbor down the street brought it up to my house and said it was delievered to them by mistake. DOH! Don't get me started on UPS throwing packages.
Now that is just screwed up...
I am guessing they flew in to Orlando. that would be kinda normal, then dispersed from Orlando. As for why the frak it went south from Orlando, you got me. I know FedEx used to fly into Tallahassee, but not sure where they flew into Tally from. I would guess Orlando. Maybe wrong truck to West Palm area lol. Or maybe there is a flight out of WP sooner than Orlando. Which is doubtful...
Anyways, there is an aiport here in tally, and I dont see any reason that they couldnt fly it into here. I thought the same too about it going into orlando, but assumed it would be flown here. Guess Not. I can assure that if it says "delivered," the FedEx corporation will NOT like me very much
Wow... FedEx has been dropping the ball a lot letely. One guy on BOTB was awaiting a screen-used belt buckle and when the box came, it wasn't in it, despite the seller assuring him it would be.
I hope my new cowl doesn't go through this
I'm getting a begins cowl (not my favorite, but it's a freebie) and he's sendign it FedEx.......
*curls into a ball and thinks about pancakes*
I've never had any issues with UPS or FedEx... Have you tried calling FedEx?
Well I have your tracking number. I am going to have them ship it to my house!
LOL Maybe they overshot Tallahassee and only realized the booboo when they hit the Everglades.
ah, ok now I get it - and I dont get it at the same time since it makes no sense for FedEx to send your package there... weird.
This is why I hate FedEx.
Last year, ordered some stuff from Oriental Trading Co., which is based in Nebraska, to be shipped to Dallas almost two weeks before All-Con. I check the package tracking, and my box has traveled from Omaha to Dallas to HOLLYWOOD, for no apparent reason. The Oriental Trading guy couldn't figure that one out, either. Naturally, the box arrives at my doorstep the Monday after All-Con. (Oriental Trading was nice, though, and overnighted a new order for me, which did arrive on time.)
If it arrived in Orlando, so be it ... it's probably a hub for FedEx. But why on earth is it going SOUTH??? If PB was north of Orlando, then I might understand ... but south?? Now it's over 400 miles away.
When I bought my Anakin boots, I was guaranteed they would be there by August 15th. I got them a week after Dragon*Con. LAME!!!
Bah! Its still in pompano beach. It rescheduled delivery for next monday. I might as well pick it up since I just got into Ft lauderdale now!
Anyways, I was lucky enough that I was able to get my other package from UPS, however, I had to track down the truck personally, and ended up getting my MR Westar's on the corner of a walmart and Lincoln/mercury dealership...
At least I have these two shiny blasters to play with lol
It has something to do with where the main hubs are. I know in my job we have a warehouse in Calfornia and when we send stuff via UPS to California it goes out of Cali into another state to a sorting center and hub before it comes back and delivers in Cali again.
The postal system is so much better than curriers. I don't know why people choose curriers. They cost more, they have more delivery problems, they have ten times the paperwork, and when you send something over the border... well, be prepared to spend an extra arm and/or leg on "hidden charges". I NEVER use UPS or any such service if I can help it. People rag on the postal system, but I have had very little problem with them.
I'm not calling you a liar or anything. Problems can happen with any service but I have never had a problem with UPS or FedEx (not to say that they don't happen as we are all discussing in this thread) but the Postal System has lost three separate packages that I have either shipped or had shipped to me this year alone. I will never us the Post Office for anything other than regular letters ever again. At least with UPS and FedEx you get a tracking number at no extra charge and can tell where the last place it was. And you also get $100 of insurance I believe at no extra charge. The Post Office charges extra for insurance and their delivery confirmation only tells you if it was delivered or not and that usually doesn't even update until about a day after it has been delivered. Sorry for my rant on the Post Office, it's just that I have had very bad experiences with their service.
I've been having a small problem with USPS, as well......
A guy sent a pakcage out on wednesday from South Carolina to Illinois by Priority... by my math, it should've been here Friday...... It's still not here.
He sent another pakcage to a friend of mine about 10 miles away last saturday and he had it Monday....
Well, I didn't mean to get a fight started about which is better - postal or currier - but I was just sharing my own experiences. One of the problems I have (being in Canada) is when I order something from the US there are always extra border-related charges from UPS and similar business. I've never had that problem with the post. Also, I personally have never had anything lost in the mail between Canada and US... however - I did have one thing shipped to Australia get lost once. Considering the number of things I've sent and received in the mail, though, I'd say that's not a very high percentage. When I ship a package through the post there is $100 insurance included, and only a dollar or so more to insure it for more than that. They also come with a tracking number at no extra cost.
Again, I'm not trying to get anything started here, just expressing my own experiences. I think when things are sent via UPS within the US there's not likely to be hidden charges like we get up here when receiving stuff from below the border.
I also didn't mean to start an arguement about which service is better. I also didn't notice you were in Canada when I made my comment. I do agree that International shipping is probably easier/better which the postal system. But regardless those were just my opinions and I'm sure everyone has their own which are shaped by their personal experiences between each service. Also, each is bound to have their problems just by the sheer volume of packages shipped by each service daily they can't be 100% so whoever is used there is sooner or later bound to be a lost package at some point.
Once again I didn't mean to sound harsh with my first post. Cheers and hopefully no more lost packages for USPS, UPS, or FedEx.
A lot of people rag on all 4 of those companies but I haven't had any issues with any of them. If I have something that I want to know where it is at all times I ship with fed ex, when I don't really care, or if I'm eating some of the shipping costs. I go with usps. I've never shipped with DHL but have recieved from them and they were right up there with fex ex. I rarely ever ship with ups because they're so freakin expensive for no reason, but from what has been shipped to me has arrived with no problems.
Alright. Im fed up with this. All day today, it was saying "in transit" after going back to orlando. I just now checked it. Guess where it is this time...Ellenwood, Georgia!
We should start taking bets as to where it will end up next! Im going to call first thing in the moring...
I'm gonna say returning to sender!
I'm picturing the driver looking at a map while trying to pronounce "Tal-a-hass-ee?" and then saying, "Ne'er heard o' it. Oh, well, can't be that important. Think I'll take me a drive to Alaska."
Oh, by the way, I just received notice from the person in Australia I sent the "lost" parcel to. It arrived yesterday. I sent it about 3 months ago. So, I guess now I can say I've never lost anything in the mail. LOLOLOL
bah, Im calling right now, will update in a few..
Man, this has been a total mind****...I dont know what to even say...
so..... did it get there?
Weather delay? Was it attached to a kite that caught the jet stream and flew to Pampano Beach?
EDIT: HEHE - Post count 1138 !!!
"weather delay"? Yeah, I guess the good weather down in Pompano Beach is what delayed things. LOL "Gonna get me some sun while I'm in Florida!!!"
I think your package might have caugh some Spring Break sun.
Thanks for that image, jodo.....actually, you can have it back, I have enough mental issues.
Ay, It was mighty humid and sunny in ft lauderdale last week, so I got my fill.
Anyways, I got the package. I looked at it, and written in black sharpie, above my adress is "Bad Zip!!!"
Apparently thats probably why it went the route it did. I dont get why they used my billing address zip, instead of the zip that was with my shipping address. I dont get it, next time Im going to have to make sure they use my full shipping address..
Anyways, here's what was in the package!
Im going to be molding my Sandtrooper handback sculpts with this, going to be my first time molding :
phew. thank god. I was getting stressed out and it isn't even my package.
