Default Access Securepak?

Has anyone had problems lately with this vendor? They say they shipped my son's package on July 12 but the prison says it has not arrived and is not in their warehouse.

When I placed his last order I used a different vendor and his package was given to him just a few days after shipping. Guess I should have stuck with them.

My son told me another inmate received an empty package with just packing material inside the box. Has anyone else had trouble? Thanks

If the package was shipped on the 12th the prison has,15 days after the arrival to deliver it to your son. If he dont receive it by Friday July 26th he can make a complaint. Please keep in mind that the hunger strike took place on July 8th. that week the prison was locked down so this could be the cause for delay.

Right, I realize the prison takes time to deliver the package. Since there has been no lock down where my son is I don't think that would have any affect. The prison is saying that they haven't received the package. And Access is saying it was shipped.

I like Union Supply.They send theirs packages UPS.
(You can track the packages) And usually shipped within 48 hrs. Also they have a layaway plan.

I like amazon when ordering books. You can also track packages and they ship quickly.

Me and access dont get along. They are expensive in my opionion. Walkenhurst would be my second choice.

Anyone have any idea on what extension is R&R sergeant? I am trying to find my husband's package that was mailed out on 9-24-13. He still hasn't received it as of Friday. I call RR, but it just rings and rings. Thanks in advance.

In my experience, it takes about two weeks altogether, from when I order it to when he receives it, but this past package (special order) took a lot longer because of the lockdown and because the vendor sent the wrong item and the prison rejected it.

Can they receive packages during orientation or whatever you call it when they're first transferred to prison?

If he's been in the system for a min than I doubt that he will do oreintation. He may just mainline right away. I'm sure after that he will be able to make store, packages etc.
