Sorry that you had a bad experience because I ask that USPS be used where possible as the service has been better than the "other two" and the fees were reasonable. Hopefully it will work out for you.

Sooner or later we all seem to have a problem with one of the major shippers. That's part of life and unfortunately we have to put up with it. Sorry to hear of your problem.

For the record ....I have suffered losses by the big three. Its a coin toss everytime we ship something or have to wait for something to arrive.

That doesn't make sense, the usps does not what to
ship back an item. And they make 3 attempts before
they do.. You should have seen a notice.

I would go to your post office and tell them your story !
they will work with you... Don't give up to easy..

I use the USPS when I can and can save my customers money
over the 2 major other ones.. Mainly when I ship to
Canada and Overseas..

not only they make 3 attempts, but afterwards they wait few weeks for you pick up at post office


I have story with fedex...I purchased digital camera online, moderately expensive, got my tracking number, was waiting the day of arrival, nothing happened...nothing happened day after, no notice....tracking information says delivered 11pm, even my signature was there online!!! well, poor forgery of my signature, actually, quite funny it looked like someone who is desperately writeing it for a first time.
I got pissed, called, faxed over, and called again and faxed again, even stopped credit payment, called visa, and so on, the long story short, after a four days fedex called me that they found the package in the truck, driver still has it! wow, what a bs, I think the driver tried to steal it, i reported whole incident to bbb

I have never had a serious problem with USPS and I prefer to use them whenever possible.

I always joke and say they are the only US government agency you can actually trust.

-and the flat rate boxes are the best value out there if you can cram it in there I may be naive, but it being a Federal offense to tamper with the package makes me feel a little more comfortable too.

I have had similar experiences with USPS. I ordered some boards from Peter and they never arrived. This happened over a year ago. Needless to say, I have yet to build a gainclone.

(My Marshall guitar amp never made it either, but MusiciansFriend sent me another)
