Another reason why I HATE UPS...
The companies that use them that I deal with are mostly in the US. Im not against customs fees. Im against INFLATED custom fees. $75.00 worth of rivets gets me a $37.00 custom charge. That includes brokerage fees which are not applied to packages delivered by USPS.
Another reason why I HATE UPS...they charge inflated fees but then don't accept cash. My wife has cash but they wont accept it. Who uses checks? And I have the cc's. So they then DONT deliver the package and I now have to re arrange my schedule to theirs to go down and pick up this package which I paid to have delivered to my bloody house.
If I don't pick it up in 3 days they automatically ship it back to its origin whereupon if the original shipper doesn't claim it within 3 days...it gets destroyed.
They don't care. If it gets damaged, their motto is...Its insured. If they believe it to be a hazardous item, they dispose of it. They recently threw out a heirloom painting hundreds of years old because the glass broke and never notified the sender or recipient.
They almost threw out a package worth hundreds on Bry.
The shipper at our company worked for UPS for 8 years and he will NEVER use them and is even less polite when talking about them than I am.
So please...Don't ship me anything via UPS. Their policies border insanity.
