If you ever order factory parts from them that are not in stock it will
take eons to receive your parts. You have been warned.

On the + side, anything in stock gets to LA in about four nanoseconds.

Re: [MBZ] Pelican Parts

2015-09-03 Thread Dan Penoff via Mercedes
This is the second time I’ve heard this dreck from them.

I find this to be questionably bogus in that I see no reason why they can’t go 
surface, like any other hazmat item can, in the USPS.  I can’t imagine that CA 
laws override Federal ones for something like this.

I shipped a seat belt with a squib in it the other day via USPS parcel post. 
When the counter guy asked me why I didn’t want to use Priority Mail, I told 
him the package had explosives in it (describing exactly what it was) and he 
agreed that it had to go surface.

Pelican Parts' policy is regardless of delivery type but they are in
negotiation with Fedex, which has a hazmat license (?), to be able to ship
with them via air or ground.
