Had a good dash sent to me by a member here. Packed well and you guessed it, cracked badly in many spots (worse than what was in the car). UPS said no to claim.

I have the luxury of having a FedEx account so they do honor any claims I have since I do a lot of shipping with them but some parts like dashes I don't ship anyway. To date I have 7 dashes now....lol all loaded with full options and stored in a cool dry room downstairs. I just picked up another blue 81 Malibu 4-door just for the dash...lol. Still has the orignal 8-track in it too!

@gmachinz & tony57chevy....

Since the last discussion about this problem with shipping dashes, I was thinking how about building a wooden case (think small coffin) and using that to ship dashes. Build it out of plywood using the LxWxH. I measured mine (still in the car) for example: L=54 3/4, W=6 1/2, H=15 (these r just approximates). Now with this anyone could construct a case and ship a dash anywhere without it being damaged. Now either the seller or buyer could do this, it will be extra cost for the buyer and the seller would probably add the cost of the materials to the dash??? maybe. But it's just one idea to try and solve this issue with trying to ship and receive an intact dash. If anyone has a better idea I'm all ears.

I have a good dash that I was going to install in my El Camino but am now selling everything due to health problems.

$200.00 plus packing and shipping.

I suggest that it be packed and shipped by the same carrier, that way if they damage it they will have to pay for it.

I will take pictures just prior to packing so there will be no dispute as to its condition.

Let me know if you are interested.

Thanks

Make sure to insure for twice what buyer pays plus packing so you get $$ for replacement cost.....and maybe cost should be what a new one would be...? Market value for a used but perfect dash could be a recently auctioned one similar in condition.....or, assuming one could find one-what's an NOS dash go for these days? Buyer needs reimbursed but so does the seller since he/she would also be out a perfect dashpad too.

That sounds like a good idea, but probably won't work. I have filed a lot of freight claims,at work, with UPS and Fed-ex. They always want a copy of the invoice showing what the buyer paid. That's all they will reimburse for.

True....or, if they want to play the stupid game then as long as you know/trust who the seller is, then have the buyer pay twice the amount and when it shows up-and it's not damaged, reimburse buyer for half. That way if its damaged, at least the seller won't get hosed and have to eat it. Shipping companies refund the shipper, not the buyer so you'd have to be sure who you're dealing with. I'd still rather deal in person but at some point perfect dashes are gonna be impossible to find.
