Re: USPS TROUBLE?

Sometimes the tracking is pretty useless with shipping companies and only shows when it's been picked up and delivered. 8 days does seem kinda long, I don't know if contacting them to put out a search for the item would work but it's worth a shot.

Then it's fine. If you didn't send it priority expect it to take a long time. Big boxes move very slow through the post.

USPS sux! If you don't have a tracking number, you're screwed. Come to think of it, even if you do, you're screwed. I've had many issues. They are so inept and don't give a damn in researching anything. I'm sure you'll be fine but I would use UPS for everything! Not like they don't have issues...but at least they are more thorough in tracking and do what they can to help. USPS is like, hey, once you mail it out, it's a gamble...time will tell...good luck to ya sucker! That's my impression.

Re: USPS TROUBLE?

I sent a guitar from Portland,OR to Fairfield,CA and it took 10 days using USPS. A frickin turtle could have carried it on its back faster. Ground UPS seems to be much faster from things shipped and received. If you can get the box as small as possible with UPS it can actually be a little cheaper and much faster.

Re: USPS TROUBLE?

I had a parcel go missing recently for a few weeks. Keep checking the tracking number and call them if it suddenly gets scanned somewhere. thats how I got mine back.
