Re: UPS delivery - be VERY careful
Hi Bill,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Good quote - I think Julius Caesar was purported to have said in the Latin
writings from the Peloponnesus Wars:
- "Veni, Vidi, Vici, Toga Habam"
or in direct English translation:
- "Been there, Seen it, Done that , got the T-Shirt"
... so we didn't invent that phrase :-)
That is yet another interesting tale of how bad UPS service can be, but at
least they are regularly (bad).
This business with a 3 box or a 5 box shipment of our AP mounts - as in
your case and mine - might work better if AP and UPS found some way to handle
the entire shipment as ONE UNIT. Maybe the only way is to strap everything to
a wooden pallet, but that would likely be more expensive. AP shipping dept.
should contact UPS and find some way of UPS keeping a multi box shipment
Obviously, if they put a separate UPS tag on each separate box, to the UPS
driver, and the system, they are just totally different boxes, unrelated to
each other. I'm just surprised this kind of shipping hasn't run amuck more
Oh well, if it takes "a few years" (in the past) to get an AP product from
your spot on the Notification List, then what's waiting a few more months for
UPS to deliver it.
