OT UPS shipping

Hopefully I won't get the big screw on this one but I bought an carb from ebay and it got damaged in shipment. Mild damage, still very usable but damage is damage. I filed a claim but the real pisser is they will settle with the shipper only. So today I call to find out they sent a $315 check to the shipper for my Carb (by the way I paid $25 for it). This is after they told me the claim was denied. Go Figure. [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img]

Re: OT UPS shipping

Cuz the shipper is the one that dropped it off at UPS and paid the shipping bill. He's the one that insured "his" shippment. All he legaly has to do is give Havack his $25 back.

Re: OT UPS shipping

Don't quite see it that way. For sure he is the customer of UPS. However he sold me a working carb for $25. at the point that he received payment the carb became mine. I can have it fixed at his expense and he can get reimbursed from UPS, he can give me the total settlement price or he can ship me a carb. Simply giving me back my money is like you selling me a bronco for $1 then when it gets stolen the insurance company says here is your $1 back? I don't think so. I can take the guy to small claims court for repair or replacement. Seeings how UPS wants the carb then it is replacement. My other option is to tell UPS that the carb is fine and they will go after him for fraud.

Re: OT UPS shipping

Well we had to meet on middle ground, which after all was fair. UPS has $100 of basic insurance. He insured the carb for more. He gave me the $100. I didn't ask for more insurance so this is fair. He wins out some because he protected himself for the full value of the loss but that was his game not mine.
