I read a lot of good things on the HAMB about using Fastenal third part logistics service for transporting large parts. I recommended this ship method to BigDaddy for a 34 4-door seat pan that I had for sale in the classifieds The process was straight forward, I contacted Fastenal via email with a description, pallet size, my nearest store in Mn, ship to Al and received a rate of $100 to ship insured. I palletized the seat pan, blocked it, labeled clearly with the buyers information, cell phone number, dropped it at the Fastenal store, where they had the bill of lading ready...and that is the last we have seen of the seat frame. I contacted Fastenal after two weeks, and they admitted losing track of the pallet. BigDaddy and I discussed and gave them another couple weeks to locate the pallet. To date nothing has been recovered, so I will proceed with recovery from Fastenal and a refund back to BigDaddy....I feel bad as he really needs the seat frame for his project...Bummed that this is floating around out there somewhere.. So proceed with caution, I would guess this is not common for Fastenal, but if you use the service make sure to insure the shipment not just for the value but also your time and effort, and make sure to take a picture of what you are shipping. So if any of you guy happen to be in a Fastenal store ask them if they have any un-claimed car parts!
