Re: Purchased AV unit directly (cash and carry)

Mon Dec 27, 2010 9:43 pm

AV shipped my unit out today. Only problem is, they sent it to my home address instead of my work address as I had requested. Luckily, George at AV was able to contact UPS and have them put it on will call so I can get it at the UPS distribution center near my house, since no one would be at the house during the day. Now I just hope UPS doesn't mess up.

If you have the UPS Tracking Number, call them EARLY in the morning to check the package location, and that it is NOT on a truck for delivery to your house.

Usually they are quite good with helping folks.

I think their website will actually tell you if it is on the truck out for delivery (if you view details) ... or is that FedEx ?

With special, last-minute instructions to NOT deliver and HOLD at the depot, it is best to check before driving there. Sometimes it gets loaded onto the truck the night before, and the package "misses" the HOLD.

Yes, I think both UPS and FedEx show "Out for Delivery", but that can be incorrect if the package was "snatched" back off the truck at the last minute.

Usually (around here) they try hard, I think, but handle a LOT of packages.

Those of you purchasing EVSE at the 12th hour with the intent of reaping the 2010 Federal Tax Credit will hopefully have it installed by Dec. 31th and have supporting documentation.

Simply buying a EVSE and having it sit in a box in your garage won't cut it.

The IRS Form 8911 states:

"In addition, the following requirements must be met to qualify for the credit."
You placed the refueling property in service during your tax year.

Just a FYI

Yeah! My AV unit is waiting for me at the UPS center near my house! Picking it up and putting it in service today. I already installed the separate PG&E Time of Use Meter and 240 volt, 40 amp double pole breaker circuit with receptacle and will be putting on an 8 gauge pigtail with a 50 amp rated plug and mounting the unit to the wall. Will takes some pics for uploading.
