Default Re: Another Delusional Ebay Seller
Once again, I urge buyers and sellers to check out the cost and convenience of using Greyhound bus line to ship drums from and to bus depots near your home. I found it much more pleasant to ship and receive drums at small rural bus "depots". These locations are usually small convenience store / gas stations about ten miles outside of metropolitan areas. I avoided driving to inner city Dallas or Houston by going to these small rural places. The shipping costs were always considerably lower than surface freight via UPS or FedEx. Shipping was also faster when the drums rode in the belly of the bus. I had a drum set leave the Boston area and arrive in the Dallas area in less than 36 hours. This included four or five transfers from one bus to another bus.
No matter how far you push the envelope, it is still stationery.
