Yeah this is nonsense and the beating up of GP by VDE is totally unwarranted.

On what planet does "Usually Ships In 7-14 Days" mean it will ship right away or that it is in stock?

106 paragraphs of rant looks like payback rather than just being upset. By the way, HRO does not "throw in" a years warranty. It's a special they are running on selected products and they add the warranty with the purchase.

I just ordered a tuner and had no idea these guys are just north of me, otherwise I would have given them a shot.

As a bystander, it is hard to make sense of what is going on. If they don't have something in stock - they should tell you right away. If they do, I will order from someone else but will give them a shot in the future-for being honest. But if their website says 7-14 days then I would think they don't have in stock and would call them on the phone to see for sure before I ordered.

When things go wrong, it is easy to get mad but I have found you normally get more mileage by being polite yet firm. No reason to fly off the handle and make the poor CS girl cry, Just ask for a refund and be done with it.

I ordered a few things thru Gigaparts about this time last year.  A few days later, a couple of the items I purchased went on sale.  I made a comment on Gigapart's Facebook page lamenting the fact that I knew exactly the time I decided to pull the trigger (I had been debating on that purchase for some time), they put it on sale a few days later.  They contacted me to submit a claim to the guarantee company they used and I'd be refunded the difference.  With just forwarding my email reciept and showing which items later went on sale on the website, I had confrimation that I'd get a check back for the difference, which I recieved just a few days later.  I apreciated the service they gave and the guarantee that was honored.  I'd be happy to buy from them again.

I Previously posted my experience with GigaParts.  Everything went OK with that order. In fact, GigaParts made sure I received a rebate that came available a few weeks after I ordered the radio, but before it was delivered.  However, I was not completely satisfied with the timeliness of the initial communication I received from them.  Last Thursday evening, I sent a message to GigaParts regarding another possible purchase. Their response time has improved considerably, responding before noon on the next business day. Smiley  I inquired whether I could upgrade several items they were including free with the purchase of a transceiver.  They did so without any problems.  I placed my order on Friday afternoon and the items were received by UPS for shipping before the end of the day.  Overall, a very positive ordering and shipping experience.  I will continue to order from GigaParts due the satisfactory service I have received from them.

I know it's an old thread but I had the same delay with my multicam IC-7200 (most of my camping gear is surplus multicam items I was issued while in the military so it was nice to get a matching rig lol). After a couple weeks I emailed the company and after being told they were waiting on the handles I just had them shipped separately. The rig and accessories I ordered were at my apartment in no time after that.

I ordered mine a year after you so it seems the "kinks" in the system were worked out. Personally I would again in a heart beat if I wasn't so cash strapped after getting out of the military haha

YEP- Hear Ya! Watch out for the REBECCA in the Sales DEpt.

All I will say, they really tried to stick it to me, but I thought
their Attorney Generals Office in their State would help me out
after 6 months of being lied to y them.

They helped me! Got my refund, plus a discount to boot.

Just get a hold of their Attorney Generals Office in their state
Consumer Fraud Division, they'll get you the action!!!
