About a week ago I placed an order at Quadratec for a light bracket setup and 2 sets of additional brackets. Had to cancel the light bracket package since it would not ship until late October and would not give enough time to get here and be put on my rig - ordered on Amazon and it has already shipped. But my real beef is with their packaging and how wasteful it is. I opened a medium sized box expecting both set of brackets to be in the box - nope. Only one. So went and double checked my order - yes, it was for 2. Checked the order tracking number - different than the one I got in my hands. Instead of putting both packages of the bracket into the box (yes, both would have fit in one box they used), they shipped them in two different boxes.

Come on Quadratec - be mindful of things. Just like you shipped me some decals in a large box instead of putting them in an envelope.

Did they possibly ship from 2 different warehouses
Far as I can tell from the shipping log they were both picked up at the same location and same time. It does not list an address, just the city.

And one I got this morning, the other is still reported down in Oregon.

Don't we look for stuff to bother ourselves about ? Oh the humanity ...

That extra shipping box is not nearly as impactful to anything that matters as is driving a carbon belching jeep around ...

Be mindful of things .. Drive a Prius ...

Read OPs comment. Look at profile for location. Suspicions confirmed.
What - just because I call Seattle home you think I'm a 'save the trees at all costs nut'? Nope. But I am mindful of waste in general - and sending a couple decals that could fit in an envelope in a box with lots of empty space is wasteful. Shipping two boxes with one bracket package in each when one box could hold both, is wasteful - both resources and $$.
