Re: We Created a Monster

This is what Hobby City is now posting when you log on
Dear Customer.
We would like to apologise for the delays in shipping orders out and we want to assure you we're working very hard to have all orders filled as quickly as possible.
For your information; Currently it is taking us around 6 to 7 days to have orders shipped out. However with the increase in warehouse staff we hope to have this back down to 48hrs within 3 weeks. We have recruited several new warehouse staff members and increased work hours in an attempt to fill orders as quickly as possible over the coming weeks.
Again, we apologise for the delay and the inconvenience this may have caused you.

Everyone at HobbyKing.com .
I couldn't just write my thoughts on here ,I loged in and went to live chat and told them I had found my original thread on line and I cut and pasted it for them to read. looks like I shook the right branches. I guess time will tell
To a tree, balsa wood and MonoKote taste just like chicken!

Handle every stressful situation like a dog.

If you can't eat it or hump it.

Pee on it and walk away.

Re: We Created a Monster

Shipping in China and Hong Kong must be very, very inexpensive. I have had very quick shipping form several companies I have dealt with, including HobbyCity.

One site, dealextreme.com (Hong Kong) has free shipping on everything they sell (mostly cheap junk, but some useful items) with no minimum, even a $1 cable or $2 ipod protector - I've ordered several times and each order arrived within 3-4 weeks. How the heck so they do it?

Yet, if I want to send a small parcel to the next town, it costs me $8 minimum and will take a week to get there.

It seems to me that Canada Post is making buying in Canada non-competitive. That's bad for our Canadian retailers.
