Hello

So 1 week ago I ordered a Rome Agent Rocker 159 from Dogfunk, their last 159 board in-stock. Then amazingly, UPS managed to actually loose my board...
I find it utterly amazing how they have managed to loose something of that size.
Hopefully they will find it before monday ends, else I get money back.

Anyone else experienced something like this? How did it end?

Sucks to hear, but considering the absurd amount of packages those shipping companies handle, their reliability is pretty stunning.

However, that means nothing as soon as they fuck up and lose one of MY packages. :laugh:

Well, funny enough, the board was last scanned in Norway and "Out for delivery"
Then I took a phone to UPS and they said it was gone

I hate UPS. Seriously. In a 2 week period I had them lose 7 packages. 7! I had ordered a violin for my nephews music lessons, and a bunch of soccer equipment for my daughters soccer season. They said it was all delivered....but I had been here all day with the door open and only the screen door closed on the 4 days they said they delivered, and NO ONE delivered a damn thing. I went around and around with them for a month about the whole thing. I have not seen the usual driver on this route since then. They are still claiming that I somehow did not see the packages delivered (even though on one package the driver has it marked that he gave the package directly to me, and even has a signature with my name that is not in my handwriting) and that someone keeps stealing the packages off my porch. I use Fed Ex or USPS whenever possible.

UPS lost over three hundred dollars worth of hats and jerseys from MLB.com. I was so pissed. Some of those were also birthday presents, which of course, left me without presents to give out since I hard ordered them just in time.

Now they have this new alliances with USPS where they have USPS do the last leg of the shipment. That's another horror story. Stuff gets lost in that handoff, too. Not to mention that it adds like two days of just processing time.

Unless you pay an arm and a leg for premium service you're liable to suffer at the hands of their less than stellar service with more possibilities for losing packages.

I've been looking forward to getting them for a week now.

I've had good experiences luckily with UPS and Fedex over the past decade of ordering thousands of computer parts. For the past 3 years it's been snowboard gear :laugh:

That said Fedex>>>>>>UPS. UPS sucks. Late, slow and I swear they punch a hole in your box before dropping it off.

The only time I ever lost something was with DHL when they announced they were closing and their driver stole my shit.

You know what pisses me off too...

The tracking is showing me that they have my stuff in a warehouse/hub that's like 2 miles from me. It's there. Right now. Yet they won't let me go to the warehouse/hub to pick up the stuff. I could have my stuff TODAY. But nooo, I have to wait until TUESDAY just because they have to roll the stuff around in their conveyor belts some more, and then hand it off to USPS (who may lose it too).

We're getting like a half foot of snow right now. I'm gonna miss out on fresh snow this weekend since I don't feel like paying for rental equipment while my stuff sits in a UPS hub.

:blowup:

I'm with you there, if I don't get them by next Friday, I have to leave for Colorado without them. Not to mention I need some time to mold them and walk around before I leave.

I used to work at UPS 20 years ago. If it was getting close to the time where the plane had to leave, you literally chucked shit in the cans and hoped for the best. Even stuff that said fragile. I'm sure alot of stuff broke. I always found it interesting how many Ron Hubbard Scientology books were shipped on a daily basis. Crazy stuff.

Contact Dogfunk and explain the situation. The sender should deal with the carrier in case of lost merchandise or physical absence of delivery, not the receiver.

UPS lost a newegg package for me a while ago. Some speakers for my PC, about $250 if I remember right.
Anyway, I had newegg deal with them directly and they sent me a replacement.

And about a week or two later, the first package magically showed up at my door.
Being an honest (stupid?) person, i called newegg and UPS to let them know it finally came in and asked how I could return the extra speakers.
Those fuckers gave me the run around, and after the 3rd call on my part things were going nowhere and I was getting pretty aggravated.
I ended up keeping the extra speakers since no one could be bothered to tell me what to do with them. I'm guessing that since they were already written off as lost no one had any incentive to do anything about it.
And since I really did not need a second set of speakers I gave them to a friend.

So who knows, you may end up with a free board.
That or the ups dude is having a hell of a time :)

My sister had a boyfriend that delivered for UPS. He said that if it was the end of the day and they wanted to go home they would throw stuff in garbage cans or just keep it so they did not have to stay out late to deliver it. Or they would just say they attempted delivery even if they did not.
