UPS is lazy

The parts I ordered from PTS Xtreme shipped out on the 4th and they have just rescheduled the delivery date to the 13!!!.......

Come on! If it were shipped with USPS it would have been here today, and at a cheaper price. I dont blame the company I ordered the parts from at all, just UPS. I need these parts so I can finish off this 200-4R and get the thing installed.

I'm glad there is lounge just so I can ***** about everything that goes wrong.

UPS delivers the parts I buy from Jegs and Summit and they get the stuff here Quick! Two business days from the purchase date I have it at my door.

I`ve never had a problem with UPS. I have with Fed - Ex, the last order I made was weeks ago, was shipped Fed - Ex, it was scheduled to be here on a monday according to the online tracking device, it didn`t arrive and it said "weather/holiday delay" thing is, there was no holiday, and it only rained a few hours that day and it didn`t pour down, the package was 35 miles from here, I thought for sure I would get it tuesday, wrong again, it finally got here wednesday, and when it did I said "this is the last time I use Fed Ex, it said it would arrive 2 days ago" and he said "well sir the weather had us delayed" and I said "that 2 hour shower delayed the whole company for 2 days? Had you called I would have came and got the package myself, when I order something I want my order, not excuses"

That's not uncommon with parts from PTS Extreme. Several people have bought from them and had to wait longer than promised for it. Delivered by UPS. The quality is worht the wait though I wish they'd be a bit more up front with the delivery schedule.
