I kept from checking the tracking number everyday to keep myself from getting too excited. So on 3/1 I check it to make sure it's still on track and get a message that it was misrouted and now there is no delivery date. I call UPS and they say it made it half way across the country to Illinois to be put back on the train to Reno that it left on. Good work UPS.
That's eerie. I wonder if our bumpers were on the same train. I had the exact same thing happen. Fortunately, the bumper arrived unscathed, but the box is a hot mess.
I ordered some rock sliders at the same time and they showed up looking like they had been dragged through a firefight. And they only had to get from PA to Maryland. The product itself was fine, but the box...
C'mon, UPS, you can do better than that with heavy shipments...

I owned and ran a business from 1986 until 2009 and have had no real problems with inbound or outbound with UPS OR FED X . The biggest thing is how it is packaged.If the product is much smaller then the box and it is heavy it has the potential of being a disaster.

You'll be saying the same thing about FedEx WHEN (not IF) they screw up something, too.

UPS, Fed Ex, USPS all do the same thing once its off the truck and going elsewhere they handle the boxes a little rough, and send them on their way. For them to handle each type of product differently would kill their shipment times, thus if a company wants their product to get to you, they should ship it better.

And coming from shittybuilt, the box was probably made in china just like the bumper, and im sure their shipping dept just sends them out that way.

X2, it happens. Also a lot of boxes really aren't strong enough to make more than one trip through the system. So when a package gets re-routed a couple of times chances of it getting trashed goes up.

I'll more than likely never use USPS again for packages. They lost one of my high priority 3 day delivery packages to my parents... ending up getting to them 5 weeks later. Then they lost a package of rare Subaru parts I sent to a buddy back home. On that one though, I sent it to the wrong address (partly my fault) and it was on it's way back to me. uh ya they still have no idea where it is and I already threw away the insurance card...

I'd say that was all your fault , Just messing with ya.

I shipped $1000 of ball joints USPS to Australia once and mistyped the house number on the address. The customer noticed it on the confirmation but it was too late to change it. I sweated bullets for a week but evidently the mail men there are smart and delivered it to the right house.

Exactly, we ship literally thousands of boxes ranging in size here. I also deliver them.

It all comes down to the mfg, or place that packages your order. We must keep a 97% quality here for packages and no damages. it makes the shipping easier

I've always had issues with FedEx delivering packages to the wrong addresses. The ones that require signatures get signed by the drivers and dropped off and are a bitch to track down. You call the number and they send a message to the driver who has no idea what they did with the package. I've even had them sign for a package but leave it in the truck, only to be found the next morning when loading up.

Seems like USPS would be your best bet for being delivered to the right house. They do deal with your mail everyday and a package addressed to someone else on their route but with your name should raise a flag.

FedEx sucks. UPS Sucks. USPS sucks. DHL sucks. Speedee sucks.

Lets start a shipping company that has Stephen Hawking in charge of logistics.

I spent a lot of money (to me) but the shipping issues finally ended it. bought 2 tops jammer, duster, front rear bumper, tire carrier, mats, 16 speakers and 2 head units, GPS...that's all I can think of right now. For the TJ.

JK is getting its parts from BASELINE 4x4
Quadratec will ship to you at no charge if you tell them you are member of the Wrangler Forum. They don't charge me when I order stuff for my Jeep.

Well sir, as it sits right now, I was promised another bumper would ship out today and would be at my door this coming monday. I was also told I would receive new shipping info with tracking number today, which I haven't received but am still hoping to today as it's coming from Nevada and they're 2 hours behind me so their workday is still in effect.

I am trying to stay positive and not call back and demand a full refund and go somewhere else to spend my money.

Everyone has their problems. Root canal is one thing you have to have to truly appreciate it. Other things are minor. Enjoy life.
