OK, it has only been 11 days since I placed my Factory outlet order for: (2) M80's (2) M60's (1) VP150 (4) QS8's and I am already wanting to start counting the days/hours. I know Brent said 4 weeks was the 'longest' it should take to ship. I roughly figure shipping to CA would be a week. But who can deal with 'rough' estimates with something as important as new speakers! ! ;\)

Some will undoubtedly feel the need to 'talk me down', as Rachel Maddow says. But I really want to hear from you nuts and berries Californians who tracked their F.O. orders via satelite (even down the assembly line!).

Here's a place to help a fellow (almost Axiomite) 'keep a lid on it'. One way to do that is to obsess on something to pass the time. Like "HOW LONG DID IT TAKE YOU FROM HANGING UP THE PHONE TO HEARING THE UPS GUY RING YOUR DOORBELL! ! !"

Work with me here people.

I bet if you average the weeks for all the items, that is when you'll get them. \:\)

I've been chased by a rottie across HIS yard while carrying two 5-gallon GLASS water bottles. One over my shoulder and one by the neck.

I think I beat him out the back gate by about a foot after he broke though the screen door to come after me. He wasn't playing.

I grew up with dogs, but had a hard time with rotties for a few years after that. I must have sat in the truck for ten minutes before I could even drive.

So.... sorry Dave!

{ding-dong}

I never was told that. When I asked Brent, he said about a week to Calif. You northern right, er, East coasters are spoiled living so close to Axiom. I do remember reading a long while ago of a guy from Texas very pleased to get his in three days. I just assumed he paid extra for 3rd day shipping.

SO do they ship third day as a matter of practice?

And Mark... ding dong, how long from order to shipping did your FO speakers take? ;o)

I have a 9 lb toy fox terrier, affenpinscher, plus more misc. He is VERY protective of his papa, so watch out. I may send you one of those New Hamshire bears I hear of on the radio. Oh, no wait, I just saw on Craig's list I can get a grissly or kodiak bear shipped to Concord, NH!

I love the story of the two guys surprised by a grizzly. One screams.. .RUN! The other guy, while running says you can't outrun a grizzly. The 'friend' yells back, "I don't have to outrun the bear, just you!" \:D

Moral... Mark, ALWAYS hang out with slow friends! ( I don't mean Tom or Fred though ;o)

The shipping times has more to do with the courier companies(not mis-sorting) and customs than Axiom.

That's strange... I really thought I remembered that Axiom was once "three days" to anywhere in the U.S. or Canada, but Jay has been here longer than me!

I said it had more to do with the companies because they all pretty much state shipping is 3 days coast to coast, cross border included, but all it takes is one slip up and you get to add one day for every mis-sort.

Jay, Mark, et al.
I always thought the standard (cheapest) ground rate for UPS and Fed X was about 5 business days from coast to coast. Are you guys saying:
1) No, the standard cheapest ground is only THREE days, coast to coast? ( I don't recall that being the case in my experience)

2) Axiom pays extra for 3rd day air via UPS, Fed Ex or what ever carrier they use? If this is the case, Jay's statement that it is three days unless it misses a transfer somewhere, would fit.

Re-reading Jay's post, it seems he believes it is #1. Hmmmmn...

OK, Shipping time aside, as it will be what it will be, How long did it take from when you ordered for your FO's to SHIP...

That is the bottom line question. I have heard 'general statements' that it can be sooner. Good, but what was 'your' experience?

Mark, with your crack history, you are excused from being expected to remember, well, even your own name actually. ;\)

Crack issue? Did you work with Joe the plumber? \:D

No you are right, The cheapest is ground usually 4-5 days.
It is just my understanding and experience that the shipments generally make it cross country via ground in 2 - 3 days and add one more for final processing and delivery, if the shipment makes it in 2 then you could theoretically have it delivered on the 3rd day. Purolator up here is generaly 4 or less, especially on Friday shipped items. It will be there by Monday AM.{hint, hint} or at least in the recent past this has been the case. Most times Fed Ex Ground and UPS Ground do take the full 5 days. Although I have had them deliver in 3 or 4.

Pretty much anything shipped air by UPS, FED EX and Purolator is for overnight shipments, not 3 days and boy do you pay for it.
