What a bummer that came in the mail today

A few days ago I scored a NOS set of rocker trim panels off of Ebay for my 390 for a great price. They arrived today and were both bent waaaaay beyond repair.

Sorry to hear that. Buying off e-bay has been good to me a this point but I'll make sure and keep this in mind when purchasing in the future.

Hope you can get a refund or reimbursment.

Re:What a bummer that came in the mail today

That would truly be a bummer! :'( MY experience with USPS is they can break an anvil, mess up a junk yard or screw up a wet dream. I would NEVER trust them to ship ANYTHING of ANY value. >:(

P.S. Sorry if my comments offend anyone, as that is not my intent. Just my opinion on the subject.

If they weren`t bent when the seller sent them to you, get a statement from him and have USPS pay you for the damage. It might work. All you can do is try.

Re:What a bummer that came in the mail today

I have been up this road a bunch of times. Nothing in the auction said anything about insurance and the usps label was only for $10.65. I did however paid exactly what the seller instructed me to pay for shipping $18.35.

I think this one will work out. I am really bummed about not getting the NOS rocker panel moldings.

Re:What a bummer that came in the mail today

I ship every day with UPS, save the tube,contact the seller to put in a claim.Every item shipped is insured for 100.00 dollars at no cost, for every 100.00 more it cost about 35 cents.For such a small claim UPs will probably pay the shipper,who in turn will have to pay you,hopefully.Good luck Doug

Re:What a bummer that came in the mail today

Clarify: Every item is insured up to 100.00. If its worth 20.00, you get back 20.00,not 100.00.Also request your shipping money to be refunded,you paid for a reliable service, which they did not provide

Doug, I think you will notice they are dealing with uSps not ups, not sure if USPS will come through as well as UPS would.

Re:What a bummer that came in the mail today

OH, that changes everything.That will probably be real hard to get anything.Sorry I thought it was UPS.I find UPS better than post office.If there is a choice I would take UPS in the future. Good Luck Doug
