Default New damaged humidor

Got my first large humidor today from humidorvault.com, opened it up and a large chunk of wood was missing from the front. WTF?!! So now I get to play phone tag with a company to return this hunk of crap. Rant over (for now).

Just heard back from them. Looks like they're blaming UPS (shocking I know) but are shipping a new one Friday. Hope this one is in better shape.

Sorry to hear that Kevin. Hopefully they get the issue resolved to your satisfaction. Always sucks when you're looking forward to something arriving and then it's not right when it finally does :\

The United Package Smashers ruin a lot of things. You can't blame the builder unless it becomes a consistent issue with them. Then it's most likely their packaging methods.

They (UPS) picked up the damaged unit yesterday. Now comes the waiting. Hope it arrives soon. My babies need a home. And hopefully this one isn't damaged.

I have gotten two different humidors shipped to me from two different places and both of them arrived damaged. I think it is a game they play, like "bust the humidor" or something. All the shipping companies must be playing.

I finally got the new non-damaged unit yesterday. I will posts pics later. Its already stuffed to the gills. Looks like I should have bought the tower of power.

You properly seasoned it in one day?

I put some of shilala's beads in it and it read 67%. I let it sit overnight and it stayed around the 67-68% mark. I will check it again tomorrow when I get home from work, cause I really want my sticks to last a long time, as does everyone.

Putting beads in and checking Rh is not seasoning.

Here is a good thread for you to read. http://www.cigarasylum.com/vb/showth...ight=seasoning

Default Re: New damaged humidor

I put a bowl of water in it but I really don't wanna wait 7-14 days. I got a wife riding my arse because of all the boxes lying around and smaller humidors taking up space all over the dining room and living room, so I guess I got a little rushed. Women don't understand.
