Trying to get an AMP. Shipping frustration.

Been looking at an AMP Annealer but one of the big drawbacks is the fedex shipping that Creedmore Sports uses. I've had nothing but problems with fx lately and I really don't want to go that route. Are there any other distributors that are USA based, so I can use UPS instead? I've offered to pay extra, but I guess it's a contract thing with Creedmore. Don't get me wrong, they were very polite at Creedmore Sports.

    You can still buy direct from Nevada
    “Free shipping via FedEx”

    The answer to the question you actually asked, OP, is no. It’s coming via FedEx or not at all. Maybe you can buy one used and get it sent some other way.
    Honestly, Creedmore is a top notch distributor. I’d let them FedEx it to me knowing they’d make it right if it failed to show.
    What happened with FedEx? They are the only reliable shipper in my area. I’d take them over either UPS or, god forbid, the USPS.

    I just bought one. Don’t remember the carrier. Bought it direct. It was shipped from Vegas. Came within a week. Creedmoor is just the middleman...order direct...when I looked Creedmoor had none in stock

    As someone who's new to using an AMP (after sitting in the garage with a drill and blowtorch like some reloading-hobo for a long time), I wouldn't give a shit if it came by camel as long it showed up in 3-5 business days.

    I just got one about 2 weeks ago, bought direct from AMP, the NV warehouse apparently was out of stock. Still shipped free direct from NZ got it in something like 4 days. I'd skip Creedmoor sports and go straight to the source, just my 2 cents

    Shipping to a local fx shop turns out to be the answer. I can avoid the obnoxious driver, but an 80 mile trip. What a pisser. You pay all of these high shipping costs and still end up with lousy service. Sign of the times I guess.

    Your over thinking this. I bought direct from AMP, ships from Nevada. Does UPS, FedEx have issues, of course. Personally I have not had any, doesn’t mean they don’t exist though. You can always fly to New Zealand and pick one up. Good luck
