Six months and counting.
Back in May I posted the below. Jwade reached out, which I very much appreciated, and informed me that this truck needed a radiological survey before they would even start on the EUC and said survey hadn't even begun to be scheduled! He added that due to the delay and lack of progress I could contact Kyle in customer service for a refund.
Well, I started phoning and Kyle is always gone or in a meeting and emailing customer service but still haven't received any response.
A couple PMs to Jwade since haven't gotten any response either.
I get it that these guys are really busy and one truck (or dollar value of one truck, or customer) either way doesn't matter much for them but I was really hoping that if I just waited one more week I could offer up a relieved review that it all came out fine in the end.
Good luck out there and buyer beware.
It is so strange on how some things get flagged... Do you know how many M109a3's left from those sales/lot, and are in the hands of there new owners months ago? There were over 25 when they were sold and last time I was there only 4 or 5 were still on the lot (including yours). Yes, years back most of the M35A2s and there sub-models were tagged for "radiological survey" before they were let out. I haven't heard of that being done again in 5-6 years or longer. Maybe yours was tagged back then and it was still in on the books for it to be checked? I am not saying it is GovPlanets fault that DOD tagged that specific truck for a "Radioligical Survey" but it sure seems to take a long time for things to get settled and worked out.
How about this one, So a few weeks ago all the HEMTT's were pulled from all auctions, ones that have been sold (payed for) but not released are being held, and possible previous sold ones maybe taken back by DOD. (nothing is known about the outcome on these trucks yet)
The cover photo for the next GovPlanet auction is 2 beautiful HEMTTs. (a bit discouraging and frustrating for those of us who have paid for ours and not seen them for almost 5 months)
Come on GovPlanet.......
I think only people that live close to Disney Mickey Mouse things. Ha! Open mouth, insert foot.It really is a mickey mouse way of doing business, but that's what we got. I guess you can compare getting your euc clearance to death---you know its coming you just don't know when! Some get it quick and easy--other will suffer slow and painful-- and some will give up and just pull the plug!
