Posted By: <b>Eric</b><p>And this is why you don't ship expensive cards with FedEx and UPS.<br /><br />If you're gonna ship them, send them registered through the USPS. It's the safest way to go. <br /><br />UPS is notorious for ripping open packages. I stopped buying a certain collectible, because I could never get it to arrive. I always got an empty box, that was ripped open at one end and then taped back shut.

Posted By: <b>JimB</b><p>FedEx has repeatedly left packages on my front porch including one that had a PSA 7 E93 Cobb, '33 Goudey Ruth #53, and a handful of T206 HoFs. I would never use FedEx to send anything valuable and wish that the auction companies would stop.<br />JimB

Posted By: <b>Jay</b><p>Of all the shipping services for overnight delivery I prefer FedEx by a large margin. The customer service people, unlike UPS, are intelligent and cooperative, and their tracking service is second to none.

Posted By: <b>boxingcardman</b><p>I've never had a problem with orange-purple Fed Ex. Fed Ex Home green-blue sucks. They delivered my Mastro winnings to me today at the office. I heard a knock on the door, got up from my desk and by the time I got to the door they'd already dumped the package at the door and bolted from the office building. Not what I'd expect when delivering expensive (at least to me) merchandise. I would never, ever use them and think Mastro should change shippers.

Posted By: <b>catena</b><p>"DHL HELL"<br /><br />i bought a big box of wax packs 4 years ago.<br />dhl did not deliver , they could not find my address, so they left it somewhere else.<br />i spoke to the ceo of DHL he was not interested at all.the SHIPPER WOULD NOT FILE A REQUEST FOR LOST PACKAGE OR FUNDS.<br />i have to date never seen a claim form<br />nothing at all,,, the supreme court would be my next avenue?<br /><br />Thank you for contacting DHL.<br /><br />I apologize, the local station has advised that the shipment was in <br />fact delivered. However, the courier went back to where he delivered the <br />package and it was gone and the house is now vacant. At this time you <br />will need to contact your shipper to initiate a loss claim with DHL.<br /><br />We appreciate the opportunity to serve you.<br /><br />Ejama <br />DHL Customer Service

Posted By: <b>Wesley</b><p>Is this gentleman from Florida going to be able make Fed Ex reimburse him for the lost cards?<br /><br />On the back of the FedEx Airway Bill the highest declared value for items of extraordinary value is $500. The airway bill then directs the user to the Service Guide for a list of items of extraordinary value. Under the Service Guide, baseball cards are explicitly included as an item of extraordinary value.

Posted By: <b>Dustan Hedlin</b><p>I'll have to agree with whoever said use USPS for your overnight deliveries. My house is fairly tough to find, and whenever UPS delivers something, they can't find it and I have to drive to their local place to pick it up. FedEx at least has the driver call me so I can direct him to my house. USPS has no problem whatsoever. Thanksfully, I have never had any lost or damaged packages.

Posted By: <b>jay behrens</b><p>I had a serious problem with UPS in the late 80s. I had over $20k worth of stuff disappear from boxes. UPS's response, instead of investing the continuing theft, was "That's what the insurance on the package is for". I told them the money won't be able to replace those items. They said, tough luck, I got my insurance money.<br /><br />That's 20 years ago and to this day, I will NEVER use UPS.<br /><br />Jay<br><br>I love pinatas. You get to beat the crap of something and get rewarded with candy.
