4 Wheel Parts - Worst buying experience ever! #4wheelparts

So, I bought a "Hoist-A-Cart" for my Jeep (http://www.4wheelparts.com/aux_incl/images.ashx?i=014-100_a.jpg&partNo=LAN&w=450&h=450), to help me remove the hard top, along with the Door Hanger. The Door Hanger shipped 3 days after and that small item was fine, no complaints there. The Hoist however took exactly a month after I place the order, before it arrived. This order was placed when I called 4 Wheel Parts's 800 number, 800-257-5629. Order came out close to $800. Not cheap. After the first week and half I called 4 Wheel Parts since the tracking via UPS indicated that the part had been sent back. When I called I spoke to a very unfriendly agent. After much digging he indicated that the packaging had been damaged and UPS made the call to send it back. That's all this agent knew and he indicated the was going to check with the warehouse and would get back to me via email.

Another week went by, no update and no email from the first guy I talked to. Called back again, this time, I talked to some other agent that basically told me the same story, but this agent, was confused as far as what to do. This second agent indicated she was going to call me with an update, 2 days went by and no update. So, I called a 3rd time, this time spoke with a nicer agent who said she was going to have the warehouse repackage it, since the actual product was not damage it, this would take another extra couple of days. Another week and half went by and to my surprise it arrived today. I was exited when I saw the the 60 lbs box. However on quick inspection the box had lots of damage already. Check the images attached. See for yourself the type of service here, unbelievable.

It seems that this was a returned unit and not only it was used, since you can tell some pieces have visible wear already, but when it was put back in the box, everything was dumped in. There is a DVD that ships with instructions in a plastic case, this was all broken, the nuts and bolts all loose in the box with bags with holes. What kind of moron in a warehouse think this is acceptable? It is simply absurd that business operate at this level. Anyway, I have called 4 Wheel Parts and have ask them to take it back. Since we are on a 3 day weekend, I was told UPS would pick it up on Tuesday. So hope that returns doesn't add more drama.

At the same time I just re-order the same product with the 2 extra parts, the Top Storage, Second Door Hanger, and the Hoist, I'm at $750 this time, all from Quadratec. I hope these guys know what they are doing compared to 4 Wheel Parts. Business like 4 Wheel Parts that don't understand customer satisfaction will not be in business for long. Customers are the lifeblood of any business so don't #@!% up 4 Wheel Parts. Anyway, very disappointed with this experience with 4 Wheel Parts. Please add your comments if you have had the same experience and I would advise to not buy from 4 Wheel Parts, they definitely are not getting my business anymore.

Quick #PowerShell function to install #Notepad ++ directly from https://notepad-plus-plus.org 

It could be done more elegant, but this works for me, any suggestions and/or comments are welcome.

For when you need to re-create VMs on the fly but you need a good text editor:


function Install-NotepadPlus {
[string]$BuildVersion = ((Invoke-WebRequest -Uri 'https://notepad-plus-plus.org/repository/').parsedhtml.body.outerhtml -replace "<[^>]*?>", "" | findstr.exe '\/' | findstr.exe /v 'Index Apache') -replace '\/' | select -last 1
[string]$LastBuildVersion = ((Invoke-WebRequest -Uri "https://notepad-plus-plus.org/repository/$BuildVersion/").parsedhtml.body.outerhtml -replace "<[^>]*?>", "" | findstr.exe '\/' | findstr.exe /v 'unstable Apache Index') -replace '\/' | sort | select -Last 1
[string]$NplusInstallerFile = "https://notepad-plus-plus.org/repository/$BuildVersion/$LastBuildVersion/npp.$LastBuildVersion.Installer.exe"
[string]$ProgramRegKey = (Get-ItemProperty 'HKLM:\software\Wow6432Node\Notepad++\' -ErrorAction Ignore).PSChildName

if($ProgramRegKey -eq $null) {
write-host "Notepad++ not installed, setting it up, hold on tight..."
Download-MyFile $NplusInstallerFile
$NplusInstallerDownloaded = ($NplusInstallerFile -split '/') | select -last 1
& $env:SystemDrive\Users\$env:USERNAME\Downloads\$NplusInstallerDownloaded /S
write-host "Notepad++ has been installed."
}
}
