shipped from: Middletown, NY
Delivered by Pilot Air, no pallet, small hole in side of box at 1 end, manf. 11/08
Result: I am happily watching the TV (still resting in box).
So for my first set, the driver lowered the box with a liftgate to the curb and then wheeled it on a dolly into the house. Box looked perfect, but set was cracked in 3 places.
Today, the driver (who happened to be the same driver who picked up the damaged set) lowered the set on an angle to the ground (I was dying inside!) and I had to carry the set with him up to the house. Since he knew about my prior bad experience, he immediately volunteered to open the box and examine the set closely. Luckily, the set itself was fine.
Set will be wall mounted tomorrow. I will try to post some pics n the owner's thread.
