Bet You Can't Beat this delivery time.

Decided to order some sound dampener from McMaster Carr that I had seen mentioned by a few guys. I had been mulling it over for awhile and finally decided it was worth a try since it was so inexpensive. After getting home from the gym, got on the computer and placed order, by the time I was done it was noon +/- 5 minutes. Went outside and started cleaning up the truck and waxing the Chevelle. 3pm a van pulls down driveway, thought it was a family friend, but I was wrong. Guy gets out of the van and has a big box and asks me to sign his clip board. I ask who is the shipment from, he tells me McMaster Carr. I am shocked to say the least. 3 hours from ordering on the computer to delivery in my driveway. What do you guys think of that?

Re: Bet You Can't Beat this delivery time.

the delivery of my 72 4 door would rival that.
When I got my 4 door it came from Spokane Washington, and was delivered to Acworth GA.
It was loaded on a truck at 4PM west coast time on a Monday, on Wednesday (2 days later) at 8PM eastern time it was sitting in my driveway. That is about 2,359 miles in what is that 49 hours? Not too bad in my book.
Oh and when it was picked up it was put on a flatbed and moved into town on to another truck.

Re: Bet You Can't Beat this delivery time.

I use McMaster almost everyday. They do carry a lot of stuff. Always get the order the next day. Much better than Grainger.

Re: Bet You Can't Beat this delivery time.

We also get McMaster Carr next day on all orders. Their prices are a little high on most items but this is because everything is in stock, I mean I don't think I have ever seen something out of stock and they hav e hard to find items. So you pay a little more their service, having everything you need and fast shipping.

Same day delivery must mean you are close by!!

I've used and been pleased with McMaster Carr for many years. That reminds me I need a new catalogue!

Re: Bet You Can't Beat this delivery time.

I can't beat that, but I routinely get my Summit orders within 20-24 hours, and they are 140+ miles away... Ordered some stuff last Wednesday afternoon, and it was at my house before noon on Thursday...

Most of the "delay" was the UPS and FED Ex drivers, as it left their terminals (out for delivery) at around 6 am...

Once you go RAT, you never go back...
