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.
