bought an RF Prime 500.1 from him for a decent price. He shipped asap monday and tossed me tracking, Item had just arrived and I took pics to explain my "eh" for the packing.


Pics as follows:


The Box:

The Box Opened:

The Bass Knob laying loose in the corner of the box:

The amp literally reaches to the edges of the box, a good knock to either end would have caused damage pretty easily. I have not moved the paper in any form apart from what was on top, not that newspaper would be much side packing regardless:

The amount of paper that was "top" packing for the amp compared to my knife, it was 2 sheets wadded up:

The remaining packing:

I opened the amp up and checked internals as the knob was on MAX when I took it out so that made me want to check the amps internals. All seems to look ok, but I won't be able to test it for a little while until I install the girls system and run wires:

So there you have it. Take the feedback for what you will. He sold it to me for less than he was asking and for that, I thank him.. but packing could have been better. I'd do business with again but i'd expect shipping quality to have a little more time spent on it. I'll update thread once I test the amp out sometime soon.

Bubble wrap and peanuts aren't expensive. I'd much rather pay a little extra up front when shipping an item out, than to have to give money back on a damaged item... :idea:

People just need to use common sense when shipping things. Would a few newspapers really protect anything at all? no
Just like the guy who shipped me a 15" sub with 6 styrofoam dinner plates as packaging. lol

that was a good post to read lol.
The guy is good and as I said i'd buy from again, just needs to work over his idea of packing for future sales.

he coulda saved on shipping by using a better sized box for that amp.. and packed it better.. 2 pool tubes would work just fine.. maybe one.. cut out the middle and put one on each side.. and one on the ends.. tape them to each other pretty tightly stick em in a box that fits it pretty tightly to avoid moving..
