    JacksRbetter Shipping Policy

    Just wanted to send some appreciation to the Jacks (and their elves) - because they keep their products IN STOCK, Ready to ship.
    I placed an order on January 8th. Today, January 10th, the complete order was on my doorstep. I'll be able to use my new gear this weekend!

    I know, when I have to have gear quickly, the Jacks will come through. Here's some quotes from their website:

    • "Shipping Policy
    • Our goal is to achieve next business day shipping on every order and we do our best to maintain enough inventory to allow us to achieve that goal."
    • "We carry a large inventory of ultra light gear that is ready to meet your camping needs"


    So here's my Three great big Whooo Buddys for the Jacks Inventory policy!!! Thanks Jacks!
    - Loki,

    "Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
    Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
    The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
    while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."
    John Muir

    I placed an order this morning from the Jacks and got a shipping notice 40 minutes later. That is pretty impressive.

    I have used their gear but never ordered it directly. I can tell you that I will definitely remember your post, and give them a try if I need something quickly. That means a lot when you are as forgetful as I am....Thanks!

    +1 on JRB's shipping speed, and last time I ordered I even got $10 back on the shipping charge from them "using a smaller box"... nice!

    JRB's shipping is hard to beat... I ordered my Sierra Sniveler on April 2 and it was on my front porch on April 6.

    Too bad the other hammocking gear manufacturers didn't keep ahead of the orders instead of making customers wait weeks to get their products!

    Thanks, guys, for wonderful products AND quick order turn-around,

    Thanks for the kind words...

    Mantaining an adequate inventory is a huge investment and harder now that the economy is coming back and quilts are flying out the door, so the inventory must continually grow...But as always our primary goal after quality products is still customer service defined by same or next day shippinging...

    BTW...In 60 days JRB will enter its tenth year, still featuring quality products and top level customer service of "Same or next business day shipping".
