I just wanted to get some other people's opinions on my situation. I ordered basically everything for kegging except the fridge from a company over three weeks ago and still have not received it. I emailed the company a week after placing the order to see what was going on. They told me my drip tray was on back order. I asked them to replace it with a beer line cleaner of equal value. Never heard back. Another week goes by and nothing. I email them again in the middle of the third week. I get an email back that Friday telling me that he assures it will be sent out yesterday. Well I know it only Tuesday, but any other other time I order something online I get a shipment confirmation as soon as they do it. Just wanted to see what someone else would do in my shoes. I feel like going on a month is a little ridiculous. Nothing I ordered was custom. I was ready to keg this past weekend and now just waiting. Am I overeacting?

I'd personally want some clear answers or else cancel the order. When i'm spending that kinda money, i want a little customer service. I've done all my orders over the phone with kegconnection.com and they are great.

Yea well it was between the company I ordered from and keg connection. Guess I made the wrong choice

Just cancel your order and research a company before ordering from next time.

Especially if it's from a store in Huntsville, Alabama. That store is notorious for late shipping and very poor customer service.

See this thread. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f14/tom-...c3-gov-168035/

Or just ask here what member's personal experience a store. I have had no issues with the following. Morebeer.com, midwestsupplies, northernbrewer, bargainfittings.com, cynmar, Amazon. Oh my goodness, I think I have a shopping problem. !! Help me.

Um, were reputable. I'd CALL them and ask for a tracking number that proves it was shipped. As a vendor, know things get backed up once in a while but if I know there will be a delay of more than a couple days, I contact the customer and let them know and give them the option for a refund.
