I thought you might chime in and get us straightened out.

Re: Ups store hates the 2nd amendment?

I have a friend that does stock work, he moved and hadn't set up his account for the new address so he tried to send 4 or 5 stocks from the nearest UPS store they took the stocks and gave him his tracing numbers, after 5 days he had several customers asking where their stocks were, he ran the tracking numbers and found they were still at the UPS store. He went right down to the store and found they hadn't been sent. because of store policy, he asked why he hadn't been notified since his address and phone number were on the box's. They just got nasty. complaints to UPS headquarters did no good.
He doesn't have problems with the pick up now but he sure hates the UPS store.

Re: Ups store hates the 2nd amendment?

I just do like the Russkies do, everything I ship is TRACTOR PARTS...everything. They arent gonna open it or x-ray it so I figger it's not their business what's in my boxes. USPS is almost as bad as the counter workers all THINK they know the regs, but they really REALLY dont. As long as I dont ship battery acid or black powder then it's none of their business. Not sure how Fedex is but I'd bet they have the same misguided understanding of the rules.

Re: Ups store hates the 2nd amendment?

How about this:

Why doesn't someone who has a copy of the pertinent regulations from UPS, USPS, FedX, DHL or other shippers post a copy of the regs so that we can keep a copy with us when we try to ship our "plumbing supplies"?

It might help a few of us in the future.

Why bother with UPS? I set up an account online with FedEx - takes all of 2 minutes, maybe.

I package - print the shipping label - smack it on the box - "click" I need a pick-up, and they show up later the same day. I've never had a rifle (approx weight 8 lbs) ship 2nd Day Air for more than $25.00. You can enter your email - and the person you're shipping to - and you both get emails on shipment every step of the way!

No - I don't work for FedEx!
