So don’t use USPS?

 

since making this thread i haven’t used them at all when possible. 

i’ve offered sellers on forums extra for them to ship UPS/fedex.

For all those who are having difficulty with USPS I feel for you. Never easy waiting for packages. As of recently I haven’t had any issues with USPS. They’ve actually been pretty spot on. Call it good luck I suppose. Just wanted to throw it out there that I use pirate ship to cut down in shipping costs through the usps

I didn't read through the whole thread, but I will say, I've had better luck with USPS than UPS or FedEx historically.

Even as I type, I have a set of Alphard eWheels v2 enroute from the Chicago area to OKC.  It is late (I am fine with that since we had a record breaking snow/cold spell here last week), but for some reason it went from Olathe, KS to Dallas, TX yesterday.  That makes zero sense since it's traveling ground and more likely than not went down I-35 roughly 5 miles east of the FedEx distribution point here in NW OKC/Edmond.  There's no reason other than human error that it should have bypassed that point. 

I'm not gonna use it anytime soon, so I'm not as upset as I would be if it were May or June, but it's just stupid.

Nothing presently.  I'm doing a full rebuild soon after my golfer's elbow heals and I get a full fitting.

Just saw an update on my driver. It arrived in Akron at 2.27am this morning. So, with any bit of luck, I'll have it tomorrow, exactly 1 week late.

I do not use them either-- Had a bud of mine over on WRX send me 2 persimmon drivers as a surprise Christmas present. He mailed them in Indiana on Dec 8th. I got them at my house in SC January 15th or so. I did a complete club rebuild on a set of irons for a friend and he ordered parts from Maltby in Ohio. I told him if he wanted them built this year he needed to make sure they were shipped Fed Ex or UPS. He paid extra and had them shipped Fed Ex and they arrived to my shop 2 days later as advertised. I know a lot of the guys that do the classic club thing on FB are now shipping Fed Ex or UPS and encouraging others to do the same.

USPS only "company " that can lose 10 million one quarter and the Federal Government will give them 20 million to lose the next quarter

Don't get me started on Christmas movie/ music and Hallmark Channel. My wife watches those movies from the beginning of October through early January emoji35.png. Hallmark Chanel has ruined Christmas for me.

My wife is just the opposite--- She likes the old series Murder She, Wrote on Hallmark----- When they start doing the Christmas stuff they do not have her show and she is pissed

On course, absolutely! But you can bet your bottom dollar it'll get to the range before then.

USPS found my package after I emailed them. Black Rifle customer service was awesome and helped me out I will continue to support them for that.

This company is not so bad. Most al people hate it because of the wait time. It has some advantages, for example, it is considerably cheaper, compared to other delivery companies. If you don't struggle with waiting a lot to get the parcel, you can use its service. Also, they give you a tracking code that can be used with every package tracker. You can always check the status of your parcel, and make some estimations when it approximately arrives. If you don't, just use the service of alternative companies like DHL or UPS.
