    Default FedEx Sucks!

    First off let me say Jeff and the VH Store did a great job in getting these orders out as promised. This is not a reflection on him in any way.

    So I paid the extra $16 bucks or whatever it was for the 2 day FedEx shipping instead of the Priority mail from the post office thinking I would have it by today, WRONG! I checked online since Saturday when it arrived in Stockon, Ca which is the final destination before being "out for delivery" in my area. It arrived in Stockton on Saturday morning and I for sure figured it would be out on today's truck to my house.

    These orders were shipped from Phoenix on Friday and some have recieved theirs as far away as Maine on Saturday.

    I just called Fedex, and the rude lady told me it would be delivered to me by 7 pm tomorrow.
    So just a word of advice to anyone still on the fence about ordering still, if you do go withthe postal service and save some coin.

    I would be your friend in Maine. I was shocked when I went to my mailbox and saw it, my wife thought something was wrong when I shouted "Holy Shit!" I tracked it Friday night and saw it was in AZ...must have caught all the planes/trucks right at the precise moments...makes me question my atheism.

    I feel like I wasted $16 bucks that I could have taken my son out to lunch with, put a little more than 4 gallons of gas in the truck with or buy a decent steak for dinner with. I should have just been patient and bought it in the store tomorrow.

    I always thought it was screwy that if you send a package to the guy that lives across the street, it has to go through Memphis first.

    Not sure I understand your issue Eddymon...

    You bought 2 day shipping. That's 2 business days. It shipped Friday... you should expect it Tuesday.

    If it were shipped Next Day... you'd expect it Monday. The rate paid ($16) would be delivered sometime after 3pm local time on it's expected 2nd day.

    I don't work for a shipping company... but use them frequently.

    The prioritization on surface delivery is geared toward Next Day priority business rates go out in the morning with a 10am target... then they go for the next tier and so on until the day is finished.

    I'm sure you seeing the tracking arrival at your local distribution Saturday seemed like you had a great shot at an early Monday delivery. Odds are a trailer or a bin from your local airport arrived and was dropped off at your local warehouse... but the actual sorting and loading on the delivery trucks most likely wasn't done until early this morning. The just scan the load which populates to status on all the individual pieces... They don't work 7/24 at local or even regional offices on the weekends. Just the major hubs.

    FedEx isn't screwing you... you're just a rabid VH fan who wants his shit now. The shipper is just processing packages for everyone.

    When I ordered my copy from the vhstore back on 1/14, I had second thoughts afterward regarding the US Priority Mail shipping. I asked Beth if I could upgrade to FedEx 2nd day and she advised against changing the shipping to that method. So my order shipped on Friday 2/3 and arrived today 2/6 in PA with my mail around 11 AM. I had taken off today anyway and had my own listening party before anyone got back home after school/work. Ripping it to both of my home computers and then it's going into the car changer. Interesting that when ripping it to one of my computers it will not show artist or song info after the files have been ripped, so I took care of that manually afterward. Now I want to sit tight before ordering the vinyl to see if the vhstore will be carrying it. Beth said as of Friday 2/3 they were still looking into carrying it.

    I paid for priority shipping when I ordered from the store a few weeks ago, and it arrived on the promised date. I have, however, had some shit luck with DredEx. I ordered a textbook for this semester which was supposed to be at my home three days after ordering. It arrived on Friday.......three weeks after ordering. I was unable to get any reading done until just recently, and most likely bombed an exam this morning as a result. Fantastic

    I live in the sticks in a "village" of 800. I'm so much in the sticks that I don't even get home postal delivery and have to use a PO Box at the small USPS office in my "village". I ordered from the VanHalenStore with Priority shipping and it was shipped out on Saturday 2/4 with it being in my box this morning, 2/6, at 9am or so.

    Sorry to hear about anyone else's shipping issues.
