"Not only was it delivered, but Amazon checked in the product immediately and it was the exact amount of units and appears to be no damage. 

Going forward we will not be swayed by suggestions from suppliers on trying a different shipper.  We will always use HYC! 

Thanks so much to the whole team, Rick, Patrick and Sue!"
