[Harp-L] Dilemma

not too happy w/UPS these days.

I sent 2 wholesale orders of gourmet foods - large packages - using UPS. UPS Truck/trailer caught fire on route and everything was burned to a crisp. It was like pulling teeth to get UPS to pay up - jumping through hoops, many phone calls to their 800 number, faxing paperwork, convincing them to pay the full amount for products loss and not just a %, etc.

The same for U.P.S. We always encouraged people to put the address inside the package as well as the outside. They will open a package and check for an address before it gets put in overgoods.

They later showed up on eBay posted by someone who had purchased them at that auction. At that point I no longer had legal recourse and ended up buying them again.
