I no longer use UPS because of my losses due to their service.  The first loss was a gun I shipped to Pennsylvania.  According to their tracking service the gun arrived at their local office, and then disappeared.  Making a claim was time consuming, and the fact that I had sold the gun for $125  was insufficient proof for UPS that the gun was worth $125.  I had to spend a couple of hours searching the internet to find another ad for the rifle to satisfy them.

The second gun I made the mistake of shipping in a box marked “Daisy”.  The box took two days to travel the ten miles from my local UPS office to the transfer point.  It arrived at my buyer in a completely different box, missing the trigger guard and trigger plate.  UPS then charged me an extra $2.50 because the box was larger than the one I had entrusted to their care.  I considered making a Paypal counterclaim, but it was not worth the trouble.

I now ship only via USPS click and ship.  I print the label at home and then drop it off at the PO  The package is tracked and I have never had a problem with a package.
