have to vent a bit F/N Post office

Well for the past month or so I have been shipping all my adapters out in the heavy buble padded envelopes. On Tuesday I got a call from figmo saying he needed a set for a customer so I sent them out the same as usual 2 day priority mail. Well I just got an email that the package was damaged and it only showed up with one adapter inside [email protected] I dont usually insure them guess im going to have to start... anybody ever filed a claim with USPS before or am I basicaly screwed for not insuring it in the 1st place, and yes hine site is 20/20 How in the F/K do you loose a 4" diameter slug of aluminum...

Re: have to vent a bit F/N Post office

Be prepared to deal with a lot of crap . Recently they've taken to damaging my stuff , usually I don't have to worry with USPS unlike UPS . In the last month , they have cost me about $80 in parts/products . To make a claim , you have to produce a reciept for the goods' value , how I'm suppose to do that when I build this stuff is beyond me . Anything really worth over $20 I do insure it , at least that way the customer can get things taken care of when they arrive damaged . You just need to make them up a reciept showing what they paid for it so they are reimbursed .

Re: have to vent a bit F/N Post office

You shouldn't have a problem then , I had one package that was damaged from some inspector opening it , and dropping a carb on it's head . Now tell me a carb and intake looks like a bomb or something when it's x-rayed....

Sarge, you mean they actually admitted to dropping and breaking the carb?

Re: have to vent a bit F/N Post office

i sent a t-case to der-t from this board out in california and he said the t-case had almost escaped from the packaging. this was through usps and not ups. everything was ok but how the hell my packaging got so tore up is beyond me. maybe they were playing football with it??? good thing i used modest amounts of shrink wrap on everything inside or that might have been a claim.

i am almost scared to ship anything lately!
