    I just sent out corals double bagged double rubber banded in a foam box surraounded by news paper so it couldnt move at all, also with the box stamped about 6 times fragile and also wrote on the box fragile do not throw. Well when it got to the person they said the bag was busted. So much for do not throw. Then I bought a css 125 from another reefer they send it in a box surounded by bags no room to move at all, well I got it in today the box looked like it was tossed about 100 feet because the corner was really smashed. I opened the box and the tube was busted right off the bottom. So much USPS I've about had it with them. I'm sooo mad right now. Time to find a better postal service. Dont you think? So who a better one?

    Sounds like you need to switch to UPS. As long as they can find your house that is. They couldn't find mine when jhnrb sent me a skimmer.

    USPS just did a horrible job shipping a wet/dry I sold on Ebay. Luckily the buyer only really wanted the pump, bio balls and spray bar... because that is all that was left.

    I had so much packing material (not peanuts - good soft and thick material) they had to drop it off a truck to break it - which they did!

    I know as soon as I saw the box I thought something might have broke because the corners were completly smashed. I just got back from the store I cant find weldon #4 for acrylic bonding anywere so I bought welder a industrial strength glue and I'm going to see if it will hold because I really dont want to deal with USPS insurance I bet I'd have to jump through hoops with them. So I used the welder and tomarrow after it reaches full strength I'll silacone it for more support and to leak proof it althought the welder seems to have done a great job on that. Well we'll see tomarrow.

    Sounds like its time to go fedex or dhl.
    When I ordered my rock,ups shipped it.If we hadnt have been home,my rock would have sit on the porch and froze.The driver just walked up on the porch,sit the box down,knocked on the door and got back in his truck and drove off.

    I agree Bobby,but any more,its just a paycheck to most people.They dont care if the stuff we order and ship is usable or not as long as they get their paycheck.It doesnt matter to them that WE spent our money to make that paycheck.

    DHL always sets our stuff, $500 camera, by the mailbox. I realy don't like them. Plus I think all their drivers are female and we all know we can't trust women to do anything right. ;)

    Completely agree with USPS. I would regularly watch the mailman just toss packages up on porches because he didn't want to walk up the 3 steps to actually set them down. Also the old guy from 4 streets over is very nice when he brings my mail to me that was miss delivered.

    Does sound like I need to try out DHL though. Hot women bringing presents is impossible to pass up.

    I'm not sure but I think we got off topic of how bad the USPS is. I would like to apply for a job at Yote's shop as package receiving clerk though.
