Good luck with that. They are coorect, the shipper has to do all the leg work with getting reimbursed through fedex. And judging by this guy's attitude, he will give up almost immediately because it is a tedious process with alot of phone calls/sitting on hold.

Davereacer and I went through this about 4 years ago, it had absolutely nothing to do with his packaging though. Lucking he was good enough to take care of it all and make the necessary phone calls to get it taken care of. I think it took about a month or two to get my money back from the shipping company.

Then the intake manifold is put into the box and then packed with styrofoam and then whatever remaining parts. I always dissasemble the head so that it has not water necks or VVL selenoids on it.

I have never had one damaged that I have shipped yet. I take alot of time and pride in what I do.

Dre is the packing master! I bought a ve head from him that travel 4200 miles and survived UK customers and it arrived in spotless condition. I'm really glad I took the time to buy from a reputable seller. I can't believe the number of disputes on this site.

First of all, tampa g20t, you sound like someone I know, someone named Tony who lives in Tampa. Is that you? Because I can tell you, Tony is a Moron and so are you.

Secondly, it's your own fault for being an idiot, overpaying for a head when Miko is right across the state, and then not using it for your own enjoyment, instead selling it at a loss. No one forced you to take $450 shipped. He asked for that price you said "SOLD!" Who's the cheapskate? When I get lowballed, I tell the buyer to get lost.

Third, I've sold literally hundreds of parts on this forum, Parted out 2 and a half cars, plus some extra SR20 parts, I've never had a packaging issue. I never paid for boxes, I dumpster dive for them, and I use tons of packing material, either saved up, or I go and grab a dozen newspapers to crinkle up. Something like that would be double-boxed, or seriously padded.

That's not a shipping issue or an insurance issue. If you took out UPS/Fedex insurance, and sent them pictures of the aftermath, they'd tell you to fuck off and they wouldn't give you a dime. Part of the insurance process is that the insured part must first be properly packaged. They would've told you the insurance you took out is void, because there was NO padding, whatsoever.

what i was trying to say was, yes it is crap that it took a post on the forum, calling him out, for him to decide to come around and help you out with the loss. you know, after first saying to get lost when you PM'd him...

but, some guys won't come around even after they are called out on the forum, take O.E.M. for example. Those guys went down screaming that they did nothing wrong and that's even worse than what tampa g20t did. (all of this is assuming he helps out like he's finally said he would on this thread)
