sbarbee, man- that's rough.

I'm sorry you were on the receiving end of that madness, man. I while back I got fed up with bad shipments to me and made the decision that I was going to over pack with insulation no matter what the cost. So, I hear ya bro!

Yeah, I just had USPS miss handle a package I sent someone. Not my fault USPS looks like they ran over the box. he opted for priority so there was no DOA, but I said if he paid shipping I would replace half of them because that is all I had left at the moment and send some others with it. He agreed and we made good on it. I am giving this guy a chance to make good before I get boiling mad and make sure know one on here has to run into him

Dang. That really sucks.

It's never good when the other end of the deal messes up when you did so well on yours.

I feel your pain from personal experience.

The one thing I like about this forum is that there's a ptrader right on your posts which basically shows how reliable you are and how many people have dealt with you in the past.

But man it's tough to judge people correctly from the internet. The ptrader thing helps a lot but without it, you have no idea if people know what they're doing. Shipping shrimp is an art form!

Any chance you could post those here? or guide me to a place that has good information on packing shrimp?

I'm planning on selling my CRS/CBS during the summer, most will be sold locally and picked up from a location lol but I could broaden my customer range if I offer shipping.
