If that's the same one I bought from you, it was actually two huge, heavy boxes, in order to comply with the weight limit. It was fascinating to track the two boxes. You might think they would have shipped them together, but they actually traveled very different routes. Both eventually arrived here in good shape, but the process was a bit worrisome.
The good news is that the winch works fine.
I always worry when I'm expecting a FedEx shipment. Their delivery people are, shall we say, "inventive."
FedEx shouldn't get all the glory. UPS once delivered a laptop, just put it inside the gate, visible to all the passersby, and not even protected by a plastic bag, as they usually do. I was away from home that week, and it rained the whole week. When I took the laptop out of the box (It was a used one, so not protected by original packing.) water ran out of it. I dried it in the oven (barely warm, if you ever have to do this yourself), and it worked fine, but I wasn't really happy about the service.
