Any service can lose your package. Anyone who has had bad luck or trouble with one of the shipping services is no better or worse off using a different one in that respect.

What do you think happens when a package gets “lost”? The most likely scenario is that somebody stole It. large boxes of air gun don’t just disappear without a trace. Thieves work at all of the shipping companies. 

The USPS guy who delivers to my house regularly delivers others people’s packages to me. I’ve confronted him about it twice and I get a bizarre vacant confused look like I just woke him up. That’s the other way packages get “lost”. 

The most important  thing is to double check what insurance you have actually bought. I thought I was buying insurance at FedEx when I was declaring a value but I was told recently that FedEx don’t actually offer insurance. I’m not sure why they ask me to declare a value…

Also, make sure you know documentation is required to make a claim before you send. 

They all break stuff too. FedEx snapped a solid steel 2 ton laminating press of mine like it was a twig. Pack your stuff as though someone will drop an elephant on it…
