UPS Packing guidelines

Hi Everyone

I was sending off some parts at my local UPS center that I'd sold on the forum and remembering the terrible damage I'd read about done to some new take off doors a couple of weeks ago at the hands of UPS I saw this posted. Hope this helps

LOL. What is the UPS edge crush test? Drop it from a 5 story building onto concrete? IME, you are insane to use UPS. Criminals.

Pissing people off on the "net" since 1983.

Land Rover. Turning owners into mechanics since 1948.

It is altogether possible that people are sending 50-100 lb items through ups packed in nothing other than cardboard and foam.

Ups has always done fine for me. I have had full 3x4 aluminum sheets.

I've received more damaged goods by UPS than any other service.

Was looking out the window one day and saw UPS driver toss my package to the front door like a newspaper.

I use Fedex. We have a corporate agreement. I can ship almost anything for under $10. Larger heavier packages for a little more.
