    Everything I have sent and received from UPS has been "OK" but I have almost never recieved a box that was not damaged by them the last few things I just had shipped the boxes were crushed or pushed in on my air cleaner,, my shifter,, and the corner of the box was pushed in on my headlight trim rings,, my trailer hitch,, witch had a boot foot print on it. Evil or Very Mad I dont want to even talk about my box's that my rims were in from Summit Racing I had to send two back for damage in shipping the lips on the rim were through the box.... UPS in Florida Sucks..!!!.. I swear the last few idems I recieved the box's were opend and retaped also..!!!.. I have had better luck with Fex Ex ...JMO... Very Happy..But I agree if they were packed better by the shipper I would have had less issues...

    I have been shipping through USPS for years and have never had a problem with their service! I can't say the same for UPS!  The worst shipping problem that have had with UPS was a set of 1932 model a roadster wheels. Three of the 4 wheels were ruined from being layed flat on bare metal floor of the truck. The lip where the hubcap goes were grinded up from vibrating metal to metal.  Was kinda the seller's fault for not packaging them up good but it was gonna be a big headache to file a insurance claim on them. I have & still use UPS since then because it is more convenient for me to ship through them but I worry a lot on the shipment. It just seems to me that UPS doesn't care about their customers.

    I choose USPS  because both FedUp and UPS hold your items ransom if they had to bring them across the boarder and you have to pay another $45 per box which they call brockerage to get your item.
    This is a striaght up rip off. They pay about $150 brokerage for an entire 18 wheeler crossing the boarder and they charge every person $45/box. They must make themselves tens of thousands of rip off dollars per truck load.
    USPS and canada post do not do that because it is out right wrong.

    How about this one

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y0EYi_a4vX4

    I witnessed the FedEx truck load up to the 9s with boxes off an airplane, so much that they couldn't closed the back dorr and they even piled boxes on the bumper because "they were only driving across the airport Ramp"  When the driver began to drive quite naturaly a whole wall of boxes fell out onto the tarmack. So the two piots start yelling at the truck drive who emidiatly stopped, put it in reverse and backed up crushing about 4 boxes under his wheels. True story.

    here is the window fuzzies kit I recieved shipped via UPS

    Thanks UPS, But in fairness i have to say it was replaced and delivered at no cost to me, I just hope it wasn't the sender who had to pay for it.


    how about this

    It seems a lot of bashing going on here. I'm not here to defend anyone. I ship $1500-$2000 non van products by UPS here and export. Packaging MUST be done someone that knows what the hell they are doing. I've seen some of my packages damaged but the product was fine.
    Crappy boxes with long stuff should not be used, put them in shipping tubes or PVC pipe.
    UPS/FED EX will deliver to your door unless you ask for a  signature, this costs extra, LOL,but a tracking code will at least tell you the day it gets there and make sure some one is home.

    After spending many years in the shipping business your need to package all items to survive this kind of treatment. Rough treatment of packages is pretty much the norm nowadays. They all do this.

    You would think that UPS, FedEx and USPS would not tolerate the un professional conduct some of their employees exhibit on their jobs. With video surveillance being used by more & more home owners & businesses you would even think that the driver's would care to do a professional job. I know that all driver's are not bad but the company's should weed out the bad weeds that makes the rest of the garden look ugly!
