Just heard that since the truck Larry's new pit was in was having so much trouble... They transfered it to a shiny new red pick-up to bring it the rest of the way.


Dave Klose also heard of the troubles and sent his big yellow "CAT" truck to take care of the situation. He is a nice guy.

Looks like I'll just have to stick with my ash producing WSM.

Larry, If you look real hard in the photo, you can see part of the pit!

I'M NOT HAPPY!!!!!!! Just got off the phone with Specialized Transportation to find out what's going on with my pit. Well, the lady tells me it's still sitting in Irving, Tx. and is not scheduled to be picked up from there until September 22, and will be delivered to another facility in Elkridge mother$#&@ing Maryland by 5 pm on September 23. I asked her why in the hell they picked it up on the 13th and it's just been sitting in a goddamn warehouse for a week. She said we don't have an availability of drivers for that route. I said it sure would have been nice to know the pit was gonna sit in a warehouse for over a week before hand. Maybe other arrangements could have been made! I stated to her there have been folks in NY and NJ that had pit's shipped from Houston and their pits sat overnight in Bealeton, WHERE I LIVE, and they got theirs in about a week. But for some unknown reason, mine has to be shipped to Elkridge, MD?? What a crock of sh$@.

BTW, this shipping company is not affiliated with Gator Pits and this is not Gator Pits fault. I don't want to give the wrong impression of Ritch and his crew, they're a great group of guys. I'm just furious with this Specialized Transportation is all.

Well Larry, by reading your post above it's hard to figure out that as polite as you apparently were to the girl who answered the phone at the shipping company, why she didn't do all that she possibly could to help you or find someone who eally could look into the matter and get you some answers.

Once again your highly tuned people skills have shone through and you have been an example to us all on how to deal with businesses and how to get action from them when we, as customers, are not happy.

FINE JOB!

We really enjoyed tailgating with your gator last night at the Cowboy game Larry. Since your team won, we'll allow the shipping to continue now. Got to go pressure wash it first though. You should have it by Thanksgiving. :lmao:

Mike,
Well in that case watching the Skins God awful offense come alive in the last few minutes to win, it was totally worth it! I hope you at least seasoned and tuned it for me!

Ritch, thanks for the help on this.

Hope they call first, I'll be at a comp in Myrtle Beach! LOL!

See this is why I like Gator Pit... Customer service is great. Even though I was labled a "pain in the ass" I will still place an order for a Stalker in the future.

Adrian,
I gotta agree, everytime I've spoke with Ritch or Chris they've gone out of their way to to take the time to answer my questions, concerns and just been overall good guys! Definitely seem like the type of guys I could see myself having a few cold ones and shooting the breeze with on any given day!

I think I've figured this out, they were waiting for the outcome of the Skins/Cowboys game and now they are pouting!!! 8-[

You bastard Finney! Ritch, put the Party Gator in the back of your truck and heard for drier land, IN VIRGINIA!!! I'll have a keg of Coor's Light waiting for you! Man if that storm hits Houston, I'm going on the news and stating the obvious, "That George Bush hates BBQ'ers"! I know he's deliberately causing Rita to slow the progression of my pit! Dammit this ain't funny!
