i like ups for the most part. its the postal service i have a problem with. i've had 2 packages "lost" in the last 6 months now and i refuse to buy anything that gets shipped by the usps. the worst part is trying to get your packages back or getting the issue resolved. the shipper/seller doesn't want to deal with it and makes you file a complaint with the usps, but the usps doesn't want to deal with it either and doesn't even understand me when i call and tell them what happed. i'll only have packages shipped by ups or fedex now.

I've never really had anything bad to say about UPS. I got my new gloves from newenough from texas in 2 or 3 days. Ronayers took a week to process my order, but once it was on the truck, that only took 3 days to my door from south carolina as well.

I also use it to send out my ebay auction sell items because paypal has UPS built into now. It's the simplest thing I've ever seen, saves me probably an hour.

I *hate* UPS.

I used to ship stuff for Motorola all the time. Computer and electronics equipment. Had to ship a $5,000 terminal server to a Motorola office in Raleigh-Durham - they delivered it to some old lady's house on the other side of town instead. Thankfully, she was smart and nice enough to send it to the right place. Apparently they do it a lot.

TWICE, since they simply couldn't find my house, rather than CALL ME, they marked the package "invalid address" and returned it to the sender. They ALMOST did it to me a third time when I had my forks overnighted to me (Traxxion Dynamics ONLY ships UPS)... thank GOD for the UPS tracking page on their website - I caught it, called their 800# and rattled my way up the chain of command until I got the driver's manager on the phone. Got him to page the driver, and make him turn around and go BACK. Once I got the manager on the line, the driver didn't have ANY problems finding the place. Amazing.

My Grandfather worked for UPS for something like 50 years - so for most of my life, I've been pro-UPS. But these guys have hosed me several times... I flat-out refuse to use them unless I have NO other options. I will gladly pay the $$$ difference to go with FedEx.

I have had that invalid address problem with them also, but for the most part UPS has been good to me. USPS on the other hand, I hate with a passion. The idiots at my post office once "lost" a package that I bought from a guy on Ebay for 3 months. I was about to file a complaint, but the guy always maintained that he sent it, and was reponsive. I call the PO several times and after being on hold for an hour each time the bungleheads couldn't find it. Finally it shows up and the postage date is the date that the guy said he sent it. I think it sat in the PO for months on a shelf until someone noticed it. Also, they'll just leave boxes in front of my house, when UPS and FedEx will leave them at the back door, and leave a note.
