Central Tractor (formerly Valu-bilt)

Postby ScottyD'sdad » Sat Feb 18, 2012 12:56 pm

They sure aren't TM! I placed a small order, last Saturday, on line,with Central tractor. Specified Priority Mail, for shipping. Checked the website, Wednesday, and it said "shipped". Finally arrived, jut now. Postmarked Wednesday! Maybe I'm spoiled, by TM's service. I didn't expect it to be shipped on the weekend, but, the third business day?? My guess is that they don't want my business, so I'll comply! Ed

The experience is quite common. Many retailers do not stock the all or most of the items offered on their web site or in their catalog. The retailers simply take the order, then reorder the item from the supplier.

Priority mail only applies to the service provide by the post office.
I have an excuse. CRS.

When it comes to the USPS, Priority Mail is an oxymoron.

It may depend on where you live, or sending a package to, but I have had very good results with Priority Mail.

The Priority mail wasn't the problem, 3 days in transit from the midwest, isn't abnormal. My complaint was in their not shipping til the 3rd day. Ed
