How good is Amazon shipping vinyl?

  1. There are Multiple fullfillment centers FILLED with low wage employees who are on the clock and no true skills or discernment what they are packing or doing.
    The overturn of employees is rediculous. So you cannot trust Ama-zong at all. They are an evil steamrolling corporation that only helps itself.
    BOYCOTT !@!!!!!!!
     
  2. Boycott the steaming -S-H-**_T pile . #EZ-Solution.
     
  3. Why don't you Blacklist them? They are the worst corporation on the planet. Don't wait for big daddy to scold you. BOYCOTT

    Why anyone would order a fragile object from Amazon and expect anything other than damage is beyond me. The orders on either side of your 200-gram repressing in the warehouse or on the delivery van could be a case of pineapple juice and a lawnmower battery.

    I ordered a record a couple of weeks ago now and had to return. It looked like the thing had been exposed to considerable heat. Not only was the record really badly warped...(like ive never seen before)....but the jacket was distorted and kind of ‘floppy’.

    Last record I received from Amazon.ca the LP was put into a record mailer and sealed which was then put into a 14x8x20 shipping box padded out. Overkill but it arrived perfect. Last 2 or 3 orders have been shipped like that.

    It has become clear to me that Amazon no longer cares about items arriving in perfect shape. My recent purchases have just been thrown into a box and not secured.

    So I have stopped buying from them unless they are my only option or if their price is just way lower. But most of the time I can find a good deal elsewhere. And I will pay a bit more just to not order from them. No excuse for this, when virtually everyone else can package things properly.

    They can probably ship you ground coffee or some T-shirts without any damage, but anything else and the odds aren't good!

    I bought the new Rockin' Ramrods comp from Amazon. It came in a big box with no padding and bent corners. Go figure!

    So I've heard those horror stories about Amazon simply slapping a shipping label onto a record and sending it out. It finally happened to me today. I was actually surprised the LP wasn't damaged worse than it was - a bent corner and a dent on top, that's it. And this was one of those flimsy dual sleeves. It's hard to believe anybody would think this is an acceptable way to ship anything out.
