I have a really good relationship with my UPS driver but I don't think he's do that for me. I never gave him a Christmas tip but I did offer him a slice of pizza once. I'll have to run this past him the next time he drops something. The only problem is you UPS guys dart in and out so fast I don't have time to bribe him, I mean give him an incentive.

I've never seen an overweight UPS man. Not like UBS drivers:

LOL- my wife meets him at the door with an ice cream bar when he makes deliveries. If you're giving him a soda or bottled water- he'll make time! lol We also gave him a deep fried turkey breast for Xmas.
Just as a point of info- If you tip your driver at Xmas-say $20-you kinda own him for the upcoming year-so to speak. I was on my route for 15 years and I had a big business customer tip me $1000 for Xmas. You better believe I bent over backwards for them!

Richard51 is starting off with a positive reputation.
I know some companies I deal with are adding a small in bound freight charge to shipping charges to off set heir freight charges. Have to maintain the profit margin!

I haven't bought anything from MAC's yet. When I compare prices for parts on my Tbird they seem to be higher that the others.

Mac's

I guess it comes down to customer service or shipping cost because it seems that every vender pretty much has the same parts.
In my quest for a "working" temp sender/gauge for my '56- I purchased from 3 vendors. I used LMC, Mac's and Mid 50's. Apparently Mid 50's was the original producer of the item that the 3 others sold me.
After dealing with the first 2, I talked to Mid 50's about the problem and the extent in which the issue was tested to verify. They sent me a new sender/gauge set up gratis including shipping- even though it's sender was incorrect also.
In the end- I found a used oem gauge and bought the original style sender from Mid-50's and was charged $4 shipping. In the future, I'll be using Mid 50's, primarily for the customer service.

I agree about mid 50s. They have been great to work with. I've been buying all my F100 parts from them.
