  • UPS no longer even rings our doorbell to indicate that they are leaving a package, they just put it on the porch and leave. I can't hear the truck so the package sits there until I notice it. They've also left packages at our neighbors', and the only reason we finally got the package was that another neighbor knew the neighbor was out of town and wanted to put the package into a safe place and noticed our address on it. I called UPS and complained and their remark was well you got the package didn't you! But none of this answers your question. I'd go to one of those stores that handles packages and let them tell you the best and cheapest way.

  • Ups lost my daughters birthday present in october and still havent found it.
    MY dad sent her one and it never got here. He called and they said they scanned it getting on a truck and leaving orlando but have no record of it after that. They still havent paid him for it either even though it was insured up to 100 dollars.
