    ***rant*** discovery build broken! Options???

    Remove this ad: become a supporter


    Guys, as you know I posted my RAM build I did for my wife for the 2014 Halloween.


    As I write this i'm trying not to cry over frustration... but here it goes...I started my discovery build a little while too... (no need to put a whole bunch o' pics, but you get the idea)


    And later Gary from CnC sent me this picture prior sending it to me....


    But this is what I got! from F**'N USPS!!!!




    Guys what are my options? (I think I'm about, to cry, scream, faint... )
    I'm devastated....

    I wrote to Gary to see what it can be done... how screwed am I on a scale from 1 to 10?

    If Gary didn't insure it he's liable in my book. But people can be squirrely. I lent out one of my lids and something similar happened and the bloke didn't insure it...and it came back damaged.

    I don't lend any thing out because of it. I make it uber clear that it is to be insured.

    Even if it's not insured, surely you can have at the USPS? If it's clearly marked in a fragile container, and it wasn't sent like that (proof: the pictures that were sent), insured or not it's a fragile item that was broken in USPS' care.

    That makes me so sad, I'm devastated for you, ricar...

    I'll see what I can do. I will hold on to it and see if I can do something with the USPS.

    I did sent it insured to CnC. The problem is how it got back to me and what I can do...

    Lots of money and time down the drain...

    Just saying, I considered a 5 gallon bucket to ship my helmet out, but found the tolerances to high to find as comfortable. I really think double boxing it is really the only safe way to go about shipping helmets.
