Hadn't ordered from them in a few years. I remember shipping was ridiculous, info on order hard to get, and to double check if its in stock before actually ordering. Doesn't surprise me they have taken their fair share of lumps. Can't say ill be shopping there again.wholesaletrains.com you have to be kidding right? They are absolutely disgusting when it comes to ordering anything. They have so many complaints against them for:
that the BBB is considering having a site specifically for them.
This IS one place to avoid at all costs, in fact, they are so bad - I wouldn't use them if my life depended on it. By the way, my views are based on Personal Experience.
PS: It is; however, a good place to walk in and shop if you know what you want.
I wanted to know if we have an update on internet trains.com site for ordering from? I noticed they have a large list of items from Cannon and Co and I've not found other sites that sell Cannon and Co.I have found that most of the stores on this thread (for better or worse) have not changed that much since this thread was begun back in '09 in terms of service. I have found that my favorite stores (they havent changed much) are those that, in addition to good/excellent exceptional service, clearly state the shipping charges that will be billed to you. There is nothing worse when opening an order and seeing some surprise shipping and handling charges.
I remember seeing an email about 18 monthas ago from Internettrains.com saying that they were under new management. You could tell they were trying to win back some customers from some mis-steps by previous management. I havent ordered from them, but occasionally they have a sale or two where I am tempted to pull the trigger. Just what I need and what they have on sale have not yet come together.
If it was flex track and a built up it would be almost impossible to ship in the same box if they use USPS and boxes.How hard is it to put one section of track and 2 built up models in a box, seal it and send it???
Sorry, should have been specific about the type of track. It was one pack of Atlas Code 83 15/30 track. Regardless of whether they use one or two or a dozen boxes, it doesn't take three days to do it. As said, I ordered an entire Air Brush System (including Compressor) from TCP Global last Monday (4 days ago) and it arrived about an hour ago. In the time it took this other mob to JUST pack something, TCP Global had it at my home, almost.If it was flex track and a built up it would be almost impossible to ship in the same box if they use USPS and boxes.
We would have to do it in 2 boxes.
I found Perry's a few years ago during a search on the Internet. I never ended up ordering from them but I noticed they have good prices and a robust amount if inventory available online. I was glad to see they updated their website when I went to their site today.Has anyone dealt with Perry's Hobbies in Morgan MN 56266, particularly with regard to their Lay-a-way service ?
