After three drops the envelope was torn, after eight drops there was a 4 inch split down the side of the envelope, big enough for the cover to drop out. And I only had one cover, your envelope had two. It's the packaging and USPS handling. IMO of course. It is entirely possible someone stole yours.
I appreciate the test, it does make sense. The only thing is that envelope in the pic is a bubble mailer, so there is plastic lined all around it. But without it in my hand I'm not sure that the plastic covers the edges on the inside, just the front and back inside maybe? Now that my fury has worn off I think it is entirely possible that could be the case.

So the shipping was $16 for first class mail with tracking from Long Beach to Phoenix. How could that not include insurance? If this was a case of poor packaging and not theft I hope that JJ replaces the missing points covers, but no response to my email message... Funny, he's at the AZ Nationals with his girl this weekend. Firebird is right in my backyard in Phoenix, and here I am 40 miles out of the city working on my CFL at my buddy Matt's garage.

Lol, myth busted?

Yeah the envelope has bubble wrap lining on three sides. The one that split during the experiment is a bubble wrap lined side, so imagine how fast the unlined side split during shipping. Either way it sucks, I hope you get your parts replaced.

It's really frustrating for customers when this happens, I've had very nasty emails and phone messages about missing shipments and then a second message with an apology for blowing a gasket because someone else in the house, or a neighbor, had the package. Hopefully he gets back to you soon and takes care of it, everybody makes mistakes, it's all about how you fix the mistake that matters in the end.

Dont you know what a dire situation the USPS is in? Heck they are cutting off saturday delivery in a few months. Their only survival chance is WCC stuff and ebay!

My understanding is that all things mailed go through many machines on the Postal system to sort them by where they're going.

probably would have been smarter to wrap it in bubble wrap, or tissue paper and/or use a padded or tyvek envelope to protect it a bit more, so it didn't have as much wiggle room in the envelope.

I have seen the way shit is handled in the back of the post office. They don't give a damn about any package or it's contents, tossing shit everywhere without a thought! Your item(s) could be laying anywhere or picked up & tossed in a lost mail bin. You may want to trace all stops if you have tracking info., I do believe most post offices keep a lost item bin. Just a thought. I have raised hell a number of times at my local p.o. & can tell you first hand, they could care less about your shit! Then they wonder why they're failing!

I ordered a 14" shift linkage...empty package arrived today with a hole the perfect size for the linkage to pop out of.

The envelopes they are using just have a weak paper lip... No reinforcement at all.

Im sure Jesse will make it right...

Anyone thinking insurance will cover this is most likely very wrong. They wll not cover bad packaging with insurance. Someoneneeds to learn how to properly pack and protect the merchandise.

I have my parts shipped to a place company in Montana that accepts the packages and holds them for a fee and I head down once a month to pick up. Well my points cover says it was delivered Saturday but the place was not open and they claim its not there now. USPS says they delivered to the correct address.

So it looks like I need to suck it up and spend who knows how much on another. If he lists them on ebay again.
