I have never had good luck shipping with Greyhound, worse than USPS. They lost a set of $500 doors for my 39 pickup coming from Montana to Illinois. Greyhound is cheap, but like thowing darts blindfolded, risky. When I had my problem I called the seller out on fordbarn and he insisted he shipped them. Once I called him out he got interested in helping me find them. In the end Greyhound had misplaced them in a warehouse in Chicago for weeks on end. From the time the seller recieved payment, until I actually had my doors in my hand, took over 2 months. The lesson I learned was NEVER ship Greyhound. Pay a little more and use FedEx or UPS. When you ship with these two they have tracking numbers and will help you find your packages.

I hope you get your wheels soon.

Sorry to hear this. Ya give it a few days, it is holiday shipping time. Although you've had a lot of broken promises already.

Greyhound has worked okay for me, but have only done it a couple times. Come to think of it they put a fender on a bus going the other way once and I had to wait a few more days to be re-routed... always received the item.

Let people know so maybe they won't get taken as well.

The reason why I posted my sellers name was he wasn't making an attempt to help me locate them. He always answered my calls and emails but he had his money so he just kept saying he shipped them and they would eventually show up. Well as 2 months went by, telling me it would eventually show up doesn't cut it. It was time to make him get proactive in the search. When his name was on the barn with a full explanation of events he got real interested in helping me.

It really sucks to get taken, but I fully believe in karma, and you may never know, but what goes around comes around....

Send copy of money order along with any info you have to the DA's office in his county. Worked twice for me. A call from the sheriff might work.

We used to get hoods via Greyhound for louvers. Never any problems. However, they stopped serving the Western slope a couple of months ago.

...and then there are the good sellers here on the Ford Barn. I recently purchased a pair of Fulton clamp-on windwings from "Gerard"; He posts here regularly, and they came in a timely manner, very well packaged and it was a smooth deal. Unfortunately, we have no way of leaving feedback for sellers, but I have absolutely no complains with Gerard... and thank you.

Only time I've been cheated in hundreds of Ebay and FordBarn transaction was by a FordBarn seller when I first got started a couple years ago. I was to buy 40 drums from him. He then proceeded to knock out the hubs and then just sent me the drums. Then I had to pay double for the hubs.
