frown This empty tube is what they delivered today after only 17 days, it used to contain my son's 6' solid steel weight bar we had ordered. We told the supplier (who did the pisspoor packaging, 2 layers of packing tape over the end, mad ) They refunded the money but the bars are now out of stock so it looks like it'll be another wait from different supplier.

How do you let a solid steel bar 6' long fall out of the tube and not notice it and stick it back in there???

You have to wonder what FedEx employees are thinking with a 6 foot soild weight bar laying around in one of their warehouses or trucks...? I mean how many do they lose of these a day? You would think they could put 2+2 together and figure out who's package got fk'ed up...? It certainly didn't drop off of the ruck somewhere in Iowa and is laying in a ditch!!!

FedEx might make good on it USPO would say it was perishable.

Read somewhere that Fed Ex drivers get a $120 per day flat. That includes 10-12 hour days. They probably don't give a rip.

Similar story of poor packaging.. I ordered a knock-off chainsaw from Amazon. They pack the bar (detached of course) in such a way that it slides back and forth until it punches a hole in the box and slides out. So the chainsaw showed up with no bar. Contacted the company, they can't send just a bar, it's only sold as a whole kit, so I return the whole box and wait for another one. 2nd saw shows up with an identical hole in the box. I thought, you gotta be kidding me. But the bar was just barely still in there!
That reminds me, I need to go write an Amazon review for their packaging!

Same thing happened when i ordered a set of lawnmower blades. Hole in box and no blades. I got screwed on that deal. I now ordered and have them delivered through a business and it's on them if things get screwed up. Sarge

ADC- It's probably floating around with my extruded aluminum channel, I received a tube with a hole in the end. The Fed-Ex driver said- I'll mark that it could be damaged... I said Damaged?... "Heck it's Gone!"

The world is now ordering everything online and the logistics are not in place to handle the surge. It's a dice roll now on all USPS, and delivery service orders.
The new normal as we call it here.

I think Mark is right about the logistics. And I'm only speculating here because I don't know any delivery drivers, but I'm guessing these guys are over-worked and under-payed, which can lead to a don't give a crap attitude.

The goons that load those trucks are a lower life form. Back when I started tech school, I got a job at some massive UPS facility outside chicago loading trucks. I think for most of the people there, it was the only job they could get. People there constantly steal and break boxes open just for fun. If a box of candy came down, it was guaranteed to get ripped into. One guy told me he had a gig putting brand new ipods in his shoe and walking out with them to sell.

Packages that came in tubes were regularly swung like baseball bats, causing the contents to come flying out the end of the tube and get scattered all over the truck. Typically they were things like blueprints and posters and such. The crackheads I worked with thought it was hilarious, and the supervisor did too. I only worked there like 3 months before I quit, it was terrible.

Your bar is probably rolling around on the floor of some semi trailer half way across the country.

Nothing I can do about it now. Sadly I got a good price on the bar and now a replacement will cost twice as much.
