F all the shipping carriers im taking a break

This crap is ridiculous!  Parts are taking up to 6 weeks to get from one place to the other.

The shipping issues I’ve been hearing about are the main reason I’m not listing!

Re: F all the shipping carriers im taking a break

Is this only happening in certain places? I live in Texas also, and I've had zero issues with shipping. Things maybe taking 2 days longer to deliver at the maximum, but it's barely noticeable. And I've been shipping and receiving everything from regular letters to gift packages. Amazon delivery, USPS and ups all on point here.

Jacksonville FL's USPS hub is another place shipments get lost, tracking disappears and full of delays.

Re: F all the shipping carriers im taking a break

I’ve had decent luck with shipping lately considering the complaints I’ve seen. Examples: Southern New England (me) to Delaware (c4)  bike flights took 24 hrs. Fed ex back to me was less. Porkchop: Georgia to me, 2 Working days from ordering. Haro from California to me, 3 working days from ordering. Dans comp was a week from ordering.  Planet (bmx) to me, No Comment.

Re: F all the shipping carriers im taking a break

I had been reading threads like this for a while thinking to myself, what the heck are they talking about?  Then....end of summer hit.  I've had 3 or 4 packages inexplicably take multiple weeks for short trips.  Something's up for sure.  However, they did all go through.  90+% of my stuff has been zipping through...some of it at record speeds....like showing up the day before I shipped it.


Hutch Fun Facts: All main line Hutch's with digits only S/N (no letters or baseballs) on the rear drop outs were US made and had their dropouts stamped between late '83 and '86.  Obviously the frame manufacture would occur slightly after that, even if they just threw 'em in a bucket randomly.  There is an obvious date code in that the first 2 digits seem to be the month and the 3rd digit is pretty obviously the last digit of the year running from '83-'86.

Re: F all the shipping carriers im taking a break

I think delays with USPS is being driven by lack of care in lieu of future layoffs being planned.

Re: F all the shipping carriers im taking a break

Two seat posts leave the same day, one from Arizona to New England and one going the opposite direction     The one I sent on Tuesday gets to my guy on Thursday. The one my guy sent me gets to on Saturday. Neither one was an issue and USPS did them both. I still haven’t seen any issues with shipping. Supply issues? Yes. Shipping no Problem

That's what she said. I bought multiple items that have "shipped" label printed only. I keep looking at tracking. Little anxious

How in the hell is that? Those frankers are letting stuff sit before delivering it. I've had stuff sit at a hub for 4-5 days before it moved again.
