i agree. if i where in your shoes, and wanted to keep the terror, i would have just ordered another wheelie king unless the terror was cheaper, but i don't think they are.

Well first i would see if they ship you a label...If they forget that, which they prob will, then call and tell them how much of a hassle it is for you to keep having to spend your valuable time fixing their mistakes and that you are having to work to send them their items back at no fault of your own. At that point they generally try and keep a happy customer.....free truck! Not only do they get a happy customer, but since they market and manufacture that truck it is also free advertisment for them! One happy person who will rave at how well tower took care of him. Its only a $300 truck so they prob purduce them for about ???? 180ish....if that so that really isnt that big of a hit.

If you don't send the Terror back, they will charge you. They KNOW you have it by your own call and their customer service line is recorded. They know your credit card number, they know your name and address to begin prosecution.

If you keep it you are only hurting the Tower customers like myself and yourself. As people become dishonest prices will increase to cover actions of id10ts who abuse the service that Tower offers.

Almost verbatim, my thoughts.

l personally would , probly have 5 beers first, then ring them and offer them a less amount than they advertised it at to keep it, saves them postage, and hassles, and gives them a sale, even if they only make 50 bucks on it they are likely to go for it, just for the hassles/postage saved, l recon if you want both, heres a golden chance at a savage discount on this thing, get on the phone and talk turkey with em, l recon you'll go alright. Make them pack it back in the box, or charge em for it !

I agree. Tower usually will cover the return postage, and if you try to pull off some crazy business they will have the upper hand.

Hmmm... somehow I know that's what you'd do
