Apparently when they completely screw up and send your item riding around in brown trucks for a week, UPS sends a nice guy in a small white truck.

Please dont tell me that you dont like the cushions as much as the cheaper backups. I like them all. And Im soooooo happy to be done.

I love them! Classy! I liked the others, but these - let me just say you have excellent taste! No wonder you were frustrated with the delivery!

On behalf of my current employer, Im sorry for the delay. Im in charge of managing the cost of hotels, transportation, and feeding of our pilots. I cant begin to describe how screwed up everything is because of covid. Ive had my own difficulties getting deliveries....

But the cushions are gorgeous!

Fancy schmancy!! Very upscale, boutique hotel vibe.

And UPS frequently rents other vehicles to,pick up the slack.

They look awesome. My DH is a UPS driver and this virus is really messing with his deliveries. I am sorry your experience was awful and glad it was fixed.

They look great! I hope you feel like they were worth the wait. The nice thing is that now you have two sets of cushions and you can switch them out whenever you'd like a different look.

Moms medicine was delivered by a UHaul truck. My garment rack was delivered by a guy in street clothes. He was driving a plain white van with no back windows. DH said not to take any candy he offered.

They are just so lovely. Maybe it feels even more satisfying to look at them knowing the patience you had to have to get them.

Those are very nice.

UPS and FedEx will often have my local post office deliver an item.
