Sounds like standards are slipping

I tried out Gainesville for my most recent purchase. It took longer than I expected for them to ship after they received my bankwire. It looks like several sites are basically selling pre-orders for future shipments, and I'm not a big fan of that.

FINALLY

after many threats and phone calls, metal is finally shipped...35 days.

i can understand the hold up in these trying times for phys purchases but the bill collecter response when THEY HAD HIS 10GER in THEIR bank....with not even an "I'M SORRY ABOUT THAT" was unreal

all communication was met with a bad attitude and incompetence on their part.

they promised shipment on a certain day 3 times and did not call n say it would be held up

bill collecting agency said they stopped doing their business from so many screw-ups.

i am just reporting the facts.....and its a real bummer 'cause they are the closest BIG dealer to my house....needless to say i wish it wasn't true.

15 days between your order and shipping.

They also claim they're new, which I'd be suspect of.

I have a few buffalo's and if you're a "silver is silver" stacker then they're fine, but they're not anything beautiful to behold. None of mine would grade "MS."

I didn't get too much of an attitude, but they're definitely incompetent. Sort of half way between used car sales and a pawn shop.

I'm curious though, once you finally get yours in hand, what the return address on the package is. Wondering if they're trying to pull off a Kitco'esque money laundering/tax evasion scheme with the whole plumbing supply bullshit.

Buyer Beware

I echo the comments of the past few weeks. It took over 3 weeks just to ship my items that I paid 3 day shipping for. No proactive call or email saying there would be a delay, even though the item showed in stock.

But wait, it gets worse. I purposely bought a "sealed box set". Did I get a box set? Nope. I got individual items. Now, sure, the important part was fine, but I purposely got a set because of what I intended to do with the set.

When I called them up, there was no offer to exchange or anything. The only thing they offered was to fix the website photos to reflect a more accurate representation. Well, the photos aren't the only problem, the description would also be wrong! In any case, it's been a week or two since that horrible experience -- and I just checked, the website is still showing false info (or else they screwed up the order and just didn't want to fix it).

Anyway, I don't think I'm going to bother with fighting with them further. I got a fair price, but the whole experience leaves a LOT to be desired.
