Default Seller report: SS_firehawk

Purchased a BORLA ATAK exhaust from SS_firehawk and just wanted to pass on my experience for others to learn from.

I sent him $470 for mufflers to be shipped to my house...this is what I received.



Absolutely no packaging internal to the box, which caused the mufflers to puncture the box, scraping the tips and bending the exhaust hangers.


While I was able to bend the hangers back in place, this level of packaging is not acceptable, and the damage devalues the product significantly.

Not sure if you liaise with the seller first to work out the issue. It seem from the sale thread 2011+ Mustang GT Borla ATAK Axle back exhaust For Sale, it was his father who shipped it. Either way, it was a poorly packaged job but it seem to me he was just the middleman. But I stand to be corrected.

You are correct, it was his father who shipped it.

Of course at the end of the day, if he's selling things on behalf of his dad, he owns responsibility for what is being shipped.

I'm to lazy to check where they were shipped from but I've shipped from Canada over the border to the states and both times customs opened my packages and switched the packaging around, untaped everything, pretty much made a mess of it. I doubt that's what happened here. Just sayin

I agree. That is poor packaging! I would be furious.
