Ok were heading down hill! The clock is ticking! Who out there has received their orders from TransWorld? And who has not recieved their products? Please follow the way I list mine so everyone can see the status of your orders!
***FrightProps - Status- Ordered at show recieved 3 weeks after show! A+
***ScareFactory-Status- Ordered at show just recently recieved! A+ (I think Dave maybe turning things around as he stated.)
***OakIsland- Ordered after show received a few weeks later. A+
***Distortions-Ordered after show received 4 weeks later. A+
***Unit70-Ordered after show added to order a few weeks back have not received yet. Brady keeps me informed and I told them to take their time as long as I have it be end of Aug. I will go ahead and give them an A+ because these boys are on their game.
***Buckeys Boneyard-Ordered at show received 3 weeks after show. A+
I also ordered from several smaller companies and already recieved all of them all did great jobs in getting me my products.
***CFX I just ordered from Wes but I will also give them an A+ as this company too is on their game! Well folks Shane for the 2008 season has no complaints with the companies this year. Although I have done much business with all these guys in the past and always had GREAT EXPERIENCES!!! THANKS GUYS! AS FAR AS SHANE AND GRAYSTONE MANOR GO YOU GUYS ARE SOME OF THE BEST OF THE BEST! Shane and thats Happy Shane this time!

***Frightprops- Ordered at the show but have not received, yet he charged me in May after saying he would charge before shipping. I need to look into this.
***OakIsland- Ordered at show and received
***Unit70- Ordered a few weeks after show and can't get ahold of them from what I understand. I am not expecting anything from them until end of July/Aug anyway.
There are others but I don't want to go into how I feel about those situations.

Scarefactory shipped to us 110%.

Every other vendor has either shipped 50% or their stuff is on its way.

I'm very happy with everyone!

Thats the reason or purpose of this thread to see how companies are doing. So by all means if there is something on your mind or you feel you may not be getting your product list them here. If nothing else they might see it here and contact you. As far as Unit70 I taked with Brady yesterday they are not doing a lot of phone chit chat but I assure you they are working on your products!

Fright Catalog- placed order and received within 3 days - A++

Minions Web- placed order and took over 8 weeks to get 1 web gun - B-

Forum Novelties- placed order and received within 1 week - A+

Dillon- placed order, they were extremely helpful over the phone, they have some kick ass realistic snakes - A+++

Oak Island - placed my order back on the 1st of may, still waiting, called several times and all I hear is they are still working on orders, its the claustrophobia I, disappointed with them thus far, STILL WAITING!!!

Morbid Industries - these guys were real JERKS, they refused to sell me any products unless I ordered at least $1,000 from them, let me qoute them, "Our product is of the greatest quality, if you can't order at least $1,000 then we can't sell to you!" When I'm ready to spend $1K with them, I will never buy any of their products ever!!! - FFFFFF

Haunted Enterprises- these guys are great, I ordered 10 Maestro's controllers, 10 PIR sensors, picture frame, 2 mounted animal heads (dog and gorilla), I received weekly updates for 3 weeks and received my order. These are quality products from a quality seller. They will be getting my buisness again - A+++

Gore Galore- ordered 4 corpsification kits at HCON and waited about 6 weeks to get them, when I e-mailed they were getting stuff ready for MHC and I was waiting for more kits to be made. Little disappointed in the wait, but the product was good quality. - B+

Well I only bought 2 items from them this year. It was the wolves and the old lady on the walker. I know lots of people like the giant things they carry. They just don't fit into the theam of Graystone Manor. Our story line is based on a real doctor so most everything at Graystone is human related the wolves we kinda figured would work because they have broke in the the old Mansion. I have a ton of items coming in from my boys Bo and Brady at Unit70 and they are doing me a dog to go with another dog we got from Distortions. Everything else in the manor are human! Thats just the way I like it. Keepin it real baby keepin it real!!!!!! Thanks for the question babe did you get anything from them? Shane

As a vendor and a haunt onwer I hate to see this. Vendors need to understand the haunt side of operations as well as their own. On the haunt side of things I need to have my orders in place more or less by now so that I can fine tune my haunt. I HATE waiting until the last minute to try to fit something in.

As a vendor we pride ourselves on getting everything out immediately, if it does not ship that day we let you know exactly when it will ship. More often than not if we have any wait it is on customer payment, never on our side. I am truly sorry and hope the industry can improve and be more responsive to the haunt commmunity and understand our issues.

Since all my stuff was created in house By me I must give my self an A++ for great quality and for getting the stuff delivered on a timely basis. My turn aorund was so timely in some cases only a few hours after the order was placed I had the product. Yeah way to go self once again another yr of no disappointments.
Best of all everything was exactly as I imagined Its like I can read my mind or somehing

Honestly Shane, I don't think it's any of your business about other peoples orders. We all know your filthy little track record now, why don't you go work on your Haunt or something. When you reach the pearly gates I'm sure there will be a review of your life.

You are not a spokesman for this industry, you are a beginner, stop spinning your wheels, stop hammering people that can eventually help you out of a bind. This industry is built on the love of the season, we all care and try to take care of each other. Get a life, then you will see the light.

Better yet, don't go into the light..,
