Default Fed-Ex...

Waited all day for my KM to come and I finally receive my package. Open the box to find this:




Wish Fed Ex would treat boxes with more respect.

Oh no Kings Republic, I just hate to see that happen. People don't do their jobs correctly and people like us have to deal with it. I hope you got it straightened out though. I can only imagine how I'd feel if I bought a KM (which I want like hell) and I opened the package only to find out that it's contents were crushed due to some incompetent fool who could not do his/her job correctly. Don't worry though, you are the man, you know that. So keep smoking hookah and peace be with you

*GASPS* Omg! ahh! lol

Geez idk fedex is ALWAYS breaking vases all the friggen time. Fedex is usually the only shipping company that everyone complains about because of this. Never hear anything about UPS though.

I hope you can call up the vendor and tell them what happened because that really sux

Fed Ex and DHL must roshambo to see who will be considered the worst delivery service. They both are awful. They cannot follow simple directions or at least act like they can't. I swear I think they act like they can't find my house so they have an excuse to delay delivery a day. They are rough with packages too. When UPS delivers you cannot here them place the package on the doorstep. When Fed Ex puts the package of the doorstep it makes a loud thump as if it was dropped from chest level or spiked! LOL I prefer UPS or USPS for all deliveries.

Ouch!

So far I've never had a serious problem with either Fed-Ex or DHL but UPS is definitely the most careful with your packages.

okay so this one time im showering, i had just ordered my first mya 4 days prior to this, and i hear one loud thump. just one. so since i had just finished showering i threw on some clothes and ran outside to see that fed ex was leaving, so half naked im running after this son of a bitch, i catch up to him at the stop sign like 50 feet away from my house and say, hello sir, can i get my package really quick? he tells me if you wanted your package so bad you should answered the door, swee ya tomorrow...then he took off.

that was the last time ive used fed ex as a shipper, or gotten anyhing shipped to me from them.

avoid fedex at all costs, if that means finding another vendor then so be it.

omg i litteraly about died haha that fucking sucks man i know how those bastards can be i worked in the shipping and packing industry or a little bit and i kinda know what goes on but still did it have fragile stickers on it? also you can file a claim and either get fed ex to pay for the damages or you can call up whoever you got it from and tell them what happend and see if they will send you a new base...

You do realize that "Fragile" stickers only give them more of an incentive to destroy your package?

Well in that case you should have ran after him bare-assed in front of god and everyone and beaten him down like an incompetent fool and maybe choked him out with an old hookah hose...hey, these people have to learn their lesson you know

Doesn't Fedex have drivers that own their own trucks?
I've never had a problem with fedex, but it seems like some people have multiple problems with them, and some don't at all. i guess it depends on area?
