I purchased 5 20x40x1000mm v slot linear rails and 3 20x80x1000mm v slot linear rails, and 2 of 20x40 rails were bent on the corner slots. I don’t want to negate the open builds store as the package had damage appearing to where the box could have been dropped. The 20x40s are for the base so I believe I can work with them it’s just kind of disappointing. Anymore it appears no matter who I order from if it’s larger packages there’s always something that gets messed up. Which is a shame because no matter how well quality control is for a company, carrier companies can tarnish it.

    It is disappointing all around when packages get damaged. No worries! Reach out to Customer Service and they will make this right for you! [email protected]

    Seems like you could do with keeping an eye on the delivery company and the drivers. :zipit:
    To be honest, you've gotta go quite hard to damage the stuff you get from Openbuilds. I've just had a delivery from the States and all was great! :thumbsup:
    My rubbish bin that week was overflowing with wrappings!! :):)

    The open builds store was pretty cool about, told they would send me new ones if i wanted, but like I said Im pretty sure they will work just fine, as they are mainly for the base support. I swear though carriers are just getting worse by the day. GrayUK you aint kidding about the packaging, I was shocked to see the damage with all the plastic and bubble wrap. It took multiple passes with my utility knife to get through it all.
