Whom Would You Use-Shipping

Not sure if this is the right place to start this thread other than it's gunsmithing and I'm sure many smiths as well as their customers ship build components frequently. So when it comes to shipping stocks, scopes, barrels, actions etc whom have you used and wouldn't recommend and would recommend? If you have had a bad or good experience and would like to share it, Great!

I'd check with your smith and see if he has a preference. I've used UPS and although the handy 5 minutes away UPS Store wouldn't ship my package cuz they "didn't feel comfortable shipping a gun" the main hub gave me no grief at all. The 20 minute drive to the hub was a PITA but other than that I had no problems. Make sure that you specify that the package has to be delivered to a person and not left, just because the package is insured doesn't mean that they make someone sign for it. Found that out the hard way.

I have no problems with UPS or Fedex or the USPS. Each has there pluses.
UPS has some restrictions.

This just came up in the general discussion forum as well. I've had real good luck with Fedex.

Re: Whom Would You Use-Shipping

If you ship anything UPS make sure to use the UPS hub and not just a ups store. They are not owned by UPS and won't pay up if anything gets lost.
My G/F sent a B day gift to her daughter and the ups store put the wrong address on it and it never made it to her daughter. She gave them receipts and they still never refunded her money and the Main UPS Co. said they couldn't do anything about it, cause the ups stores are individually owned and operated
ups stores SUCK
