Good to hear. Same thing happened when I got my XPA-5 ,they just dumped it on the porch. Not that I blame em, that thing was damn heavy. My house is a bit of dump so being in a plain brown box it fit right in.

This morning - no box & no scheduled delivery update.

I'm getting bad vibes about this...

I called their help line & talked to a nice UPS lady who was more than helpful.

Seems that my package has been sitting in Nanaimo all weekend & was handed over to their local contracted delivery company at 7 AM this morning - so at least I know now that it is not missing, whew!

The trouble is, that updated tracking/delivery info is not available to me, the customer...

Same BS I go through Tam. Once the contractor takes hold of the parcel they do not have access to UPS's system so it goes blind. But alas it will be there today I am sure.

2:30 PM & it's here! The carton is a bit beat up, but it is an original box & quite old.

Going for my afternoon walk in the summer heat before I tackle unpacking it...

Actually I met the UPS guy at the door. I suggested that he use my wheeled dolly as mine was more heavy duty than his & I wouldn't have to switch from one to the other. He wheeled it into my foyer where I took over.

Again unpacking & setup was quite easy with help of my wife...

Good for them, but FAIL: they didn't leave a note for you.
