How USPS can f' over your new headlight.

So why not use USPS.





Thing was crushed, wet (on the inside), torn, and repackaged. I wonder why my mail guy did not right the doorbell. The seller here I will give a good thumbs up to on trying to pack it. It even had the blow up bags inside. When it got here most where deflated.

I hear ya bro. In my experience, they are expert at bending, folding, spindling, mutilating and generally destroying whatever packages are "entrusted" to them. Thats why I use UPS or FedEx.
And, good luck getting them to take responsibility for their actions!!

Never had a single problem with USPS. Try going to a different one.

FYI, I work for the USPS, we use automated machines to process large packages/boxes. The use of them does cause damage on a very small percentage, also all of our mail that is transported by air is flown on a Fed-Ex owned airplane. If is was a valuable item, insurance is available for just a couple bucks and the seller was, as all are, asked to purchase insurance at the time they bought postage for the box. Sorry to hear its messed up, hope they take care of it, but neither UPS, Fed-Ex or USPS will make it right monetarily if insurance was not purchased.

+1 to f250 and Tarmac. and cant see pics.

UPS also charges ($5) to have it held for pickup if you're not going to be home (valuable or signature).

Fedex an USPS it's Free.
