Some people do horseshit packing jobs. That's usually why this happens. You need to keep in mind that the women handling the package will more than likely drop it a few times. They cant help it, that's why they have that job in the first place.
I remember when I bought rims from you and the boxes looked like they were gangraped by elephants by the time they got to me.. And this is AFTER me and you had to bitch at them about losing 2 of the wheels for a week or something.

I'm really glad you packed em well, cause otherwise those rims would have been beat to hell.

shipping/delivery minions are morons. plain and simple. and we need to package accordingly.

I think they actually might have "throwing contests" at the distribution centers to be honest. Lets see who can throw this box full of peoples stuff the furthest guyths

the guy at my local post office has some sort of prison tattoo on his chest that resembles a cinnamon roll, but I think it's supposed to be some kind of allusion to chest hair or something... he's also got his tongue pierced... so... you know... he's probably of Leatherface's persuasion.

Yeah I remember that mess. Thankfully that is just one of the few mishaps I've had over the years. I'm so glad it worked out in the end cause the last thing I'd want to do is burn a bro on here.

I know a few losers people that worked in shipping facilities and on the delivery routes, so I've heard plenty of stories. Bad day at work? Then take it out on some random person's package.

You know, when I was younger (16-22) I was a pretty rotten ----. The funny thing is, I did this thing called "grow up" and all of a sudden I'm a halfway decent person now. What I cant understand is how grown *** men can work a job and act like complete children, disrespecting people's personal property the way they do.

The least I can hope for is that one of the losers decided to kick my box for fun and broke their f-ucking foot on my heavy-*** brakes

Maybe we need to start shipping lead bricks in flat rate boxes that say "With love from MT.net". Teach them a lesson for trashing other people's property.

It's about time someone kicked you in your box. God forbid you actually breed

Every UPS package I get is torn or ripped.
I actually refuse to do business with people that ship UPS...something I have to, but prefer not to.

If I was the type of person to get a style bar, do you think I would be the type of person who would bother with rollbar padding?

its funny how I have never seen a damaged shipment in person before until I saw my buddy's "new" 3 inch catback to complete his full 3" exhaust, and it showed up at his door step as bare, open stainless steel piping with what box was left taped around it that included the label from the box... no dents, but the flanges where nicked and very bad scraping on the pipe

I admit, I wrapped mine in 1" wide nylon to cover up where the SFI padding and where convertible top scraped against the rollbar.
Also, I'd just like to point out that I would never spend $ on chrome anything car related.
