Epilogue

Returned from vacation yesterday. Finished inventory today. All parts present. 100%!!! No damage to the kit despite the abuse endured by the crate. Thank you, Van's. That's great performance!

Default Old Dominion

In all the crates I received from Van's for the 14 and now the 10, I have used Old Dominion. In all but one case, the crates were pristine, no exterior flaws at all. In the one case there was a little damage to the crate, there was no internal damage to the parts. Van's does a great job packing it up and I will always use Old Dominion.

Default + 1 for Old Dominion

I've also had good service from Old Dominion. I've received two crates from them, one had minor damage but the contents were ok. The real point of note though, is that the driver, in each case, was very courteous and conscientious.
It went the same way both times. After getting the crate off the truck, which was no easy feat because of how it had been loaded, they pulled the crate 5 car lengths, up hill, to my garage and asked me where I wanted it and how I wanted it positioned. These guys were great! Old school American customer service.

Just for reference, I received my RV-14A finish kit yesterday and the box was in perfect condition. My buddy's finish kit arrived a couple of weeks ago the same way. Both were shipped by RoadRunner.

I had an awful experience with Old Dominion. The crate arrived fine but the shipment was supposed to be collect and the driver who dropped the shipment off said the invoice would be forthcoming. Well, two months later it showed up with a 33% penalty tacked onto it. This was an invoicing problem and not a payment problem. They dug in pretty deep on the issue until I finally gave them the choice of getting paid for their services less the "shake down" fee or to send it for collection........they opted for the first option.

+1 Old Dominion Freight.

No hassles, the driver was great. I can only hope ALL the kits are ODF!
