We usually get our stuff from Sameday but lately there has been a lot of stuff coming Fedex. Sameday is not the greatest at tracking. They are even worse than Puro or UPS.
You call to track something and they say "We'll put a trace on it." Byt the time they get back to you, the package has usually been delivered.

Depends where it's coming from, then there's the Apple distributors who receive your order from Apple. Distributors like Ingram Micro, in their case they make the call, it will not be Apple's dicision.

my computers arrived by Same Day Right-O-Way (nice name you dingbats).

The tracking number is only effective during the parcels' Canadian stage of the trip. If their info page is telling you the number is invalid or not recognised - this means it has not cleared customs yet.

It took about two weeks between Apple emailing me a notice of shipment and finally being able to track the parcel on the Right-O-Way webpage. and then it was almost another week before the computers showed up and then it was delivered by an elderly husband and wife team in a family wagon. So we carried the computers in from the street ourselves. interesting delivery service... :confused:

another cockup... one of the reasons we ordered direct from apple was to take advantage of the apple deferred payment loan. No payments or interest for 6 months! But when we got the details by mail it turned out the "loan" through MBNA had a credit card interest rate of 18%! AND the deferred payment period was NOT interest free as the salesperson told me. which meant that about $400 of interest would have accumulated by the time the first payment was due. :eek:

So we paid the whole thing off immediately and still got dinged $70 interest. What a bargain! And such snappy service!


Thanks Same Day Right-O-Way!
Thanks MBNA!
Thanks Apple for choosing such great business partners! :rolleyes:

So I guess we will deal locally from now on!

Hello,

I've never had any problems with Sameday Right-O-Way. When I ordered an eMac, it actually arrived a day or two early. In fact, Apple called me to let me know that the courier had tried to drop the computer off, but there was no one home. Apple also asked if someone would be around the next day. I was very pleased with the service from both Apple and Sameday Right-O-Way.

I have no positive comments about MBNA, so I will not share them today.

James

There's a feeder ramp in Moncton, serviced from Montreal or if it's not overnight service, it'll be trucked from YMX.

Yeah, YMX is Mirabel (Montreal) and I'm sure it's business as usual for fedex on Rememberance day. Not to worry, keep checking the tracking scans at their website.
