A few months ago our much loved most used crop snapped in two. After a suitable mourning period we ordered a replacement.
It arrived today.
Actually at first I thought I'd ordered the wrong one, since the box that was delivered was a standard size, and was expecting to find a short handled crop.
Fortunately I was wrong, the expecting standard handle crop was bent over almoat double in the box. It's not something I'm especially pleased about since the crop now isn't straight, having been in the box for 24-36 hours in its contorted state. I'm also a little worried that this unnecessary strain on the shaft will cause it to break sooner than the last one.
My question is this, is this standard procedure for packing crops ready for delivery? And now that the 365 day no quibble returns policy is dead where do.i stand if it breaks because of this unnecessary strain it has been placed under? TLDR - my crop is bent 😭
