Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Several of us placed orders with ABC Distributing and all of the items came one or two at a time...all shipped separately. This results in the cost of shipping sometimes costing more than the item ordered.

We didn't receive 2 of the items ordered for more than 5 months and when we mailed the payment, ABC claimed they didn't receive it and started sending past due notices. Although the payment was made with 10 days of receiving the last item (which took 5 months to get to us), they immediately started demanding payment, which they already had.

The quality of the items was poor. I will NEVER order anything from this company again because of the bad quality, very delayed shipping of things ordered, shipping separately resulting in expensive costs for shipping, and the apparent inablilty of them to process payment in a timely manner.

If you wanted to order something for a special occasion such as birthday or a holiday, our experience tells us that ABC cannot be trusted to get the item to us in time. There are many other companies who have much better customer service and don't play this game. By the time you pay all the separate shipping charges, you lose any savings you might have gotten by ordering from ABC. It's a waste of time to do business with this company!!!

abc distributing Announces New and Improved Shipping Rates

AUTHOR: Jodi S - (U.S.A.)

Hi Nashgirl!

I was following up on your previous blog comment on abc's shipping policies.

At abc distributing, we really take customer feedback seriously. We heard your requests and I am really excited to let you know we made significant improvements to our shipping policies by creating a shipping rate chart! Now you can know your total shipping costs up front, and whether we ship your order in one box or several, you'll never pay more than what our chart indicates.

If you want to learn more about these great changes please visit us at or let me know how I can answer any questions by emailing me at

Dear Nashgirl,

On behalf of abc distributing, I'd like to apologize for the inconvenience regarding the shipping costs for the orders in question, the delay in shipping, and the poor quality of some of the items you've received. We do make every effort to ship our customers as much merchandise in the same box as possible. Although, depending on the availability of certain items, doing so is not always possible.

I would like to work with you to resolve this problem. Please email me at your earliest convenience at with your account information.

I look forward to resolving all of your concerns.

Thank you,

Melissa Martinez
