    Default So what is up with MSQC shipping?

    Itís common knowledge everywhere that M* shipping takes forever and itís not because they donít get stuff out. (My last order was shipped the same day I placed the order.). Does anyone know why they are sticking with this carrier? Itís got to be hurting their business. I know I think twice about ordering from them because it takes so long to get here.

    sometimes businesses sign long term contracts to keep costs down.

    It's a contract thing. They changed to FedEx after the complaints about UPS. Hate to say it, UPS took better care of my packages than FedEx, but I wish they'd go with the USPS.

    I wish they would use USPS, too. I can receive on-line purchases from other soft-line companies (even Etsy) via USPS much faster than waiting for an order from M*. It should not take more than 10 days to receive an order shipped domestically within the United States?

    Well as I have stated before, I am not impressed. I placed two orders on March 13 & 15. Kudos to M* as they shipped same day. Unfortunately the packages have been sitting in Newark, NJ since 18/3, which is where apparently they process international shipments. I tried getting more info by signing up for the FedEx updates. Nothing has changed.

    It may be a very strong coincidence, but within hours of checking the FedEx package ref #, I received two emails from a bank I don't deal with, referencing orders (not the same #s). I didn't click on the link and junked the emails immediately. Unfortunately, my laptop started having issues within hours. I assume the Internet was slow. I don't use it often, but when I tried using it on Monday, my files started showing strange extensions. Yesterday I brought it to a computer expert. It seems my laptop has been hit with what is called 'ransom malware'. This is treated like the 'plague'. There have been a few of malwares in past few years where large companies have been infected and passed along. I have been advised to change all passwords. Here we go again! I certainly don't need to get hacked again.

    I did write to customer service and got a nice response, indicating they are aware of the issue. The issue of shipping is once again being elevated and brought to upper management. This does nothing for me at this time.

    Since I have already paid for my orders, I feel like my friend in Athens who was just pick-pocketed.

    There may not be a cure for my quilting / fabric accumulation addiction, but I would be really stupid if I kept placing orders and expecting a different result.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Perhaps that explains the issues I am having with my laptop too...
    TRUTH is seldom appreciated, unless you happen to agree with it. When you don't agree, you just call it rude.

    I would have it checked out as well. It's pretty serious and sad if you loose all your data, photos.

    My packages have always arrived in a reasonable time frame. I also believe the carrier is different in each area, Fedex is better here than UPS (I receive them daily for work). Using a $5 flat rate shipping is what makes the difference here. IMHO

    As an example, Fat Quarter Shop has either $4.99 or $4.95 shipping, can't remember exactly, and they ship everything USPS priority. Orders arrive in 3 days or less, so the $5.00 flat rate shipping really shouldn't be used as an excuse

    UPDATE: I received the March 13th order this morning. It arrived by Canada Post, maybe I will get 2nd order in a few days?

    So I am going to assume, FEdEx shipment was turned over to Our postal service. This would have arrived quicker via USPS.
