    I've had similar issues with car parts. They don't steal them, it's just being lazy. All they have to do is stop best the address and to say they tried to deliver.
    Because of this I try to use USPS and UPS whenever possible.

    His brother must work for the USPS here in Texas! I had an identical experience here. I was tracking my delivery and getting text updates from the P.O. I got notification that they couldn’t deliver as no one was at home! I walked down the street to where the carrier was sitting in the mail truck and asked about it. He got indignant and said that he hadn’t started delivering yet. I showed him the notice and his attitude did a 180. He mumbled something about a computer error. He got my package and gave it to me and continued what he was doing without having me sign for it. He later came to my house and asked me to sign for the package! I track ALL important packages carefully now!

    I sent my GP100 back to ruger for repairs. Came home few days later the neighbor across the street yells at me that I have a package at his house. Said the driver puled to side of the street and tossed it on the lawn and left.

    Rural area, small village,...the Post Office ‘kills’ big time,,,they are so helpful,,,,and our local mail carrier ,,,the sun rises and sets in her....and right now she has it tough, because road construction right in the middle of her route has scrambled her...the local UPS guy must have an easy route, cause he always has time to chat,.....Fed Ex, don’t recall if it was regular or ground,,had to deliver a gun, needed signature and because of the detour, both the terminal and the driver were on the phone with me, at least four times each,,,,,Great service.

    All three services are top notch,,,,and they all have to scramble due to detours and in the winter, oh wow.

    It's even better when you get a delivered notice that says delivered to dock and I don't have a loading dock at my house.

    (sad tale redacted through clarity of caffeine...)

    Solara uses the same for shipping my daughter's diabetic supplies.
    On occasion, San Diego is on the way to my house. But from my house to Solara, in Livoina Michigan, is only one hundred fourty miles...:confused:
    When I called they nice lady sighed heavily, and stated, "[email protected] FedEx..."
    Evidently, they have a contract with them and I am unable to pay for a different service, even though I want to...:(

    I think Detroit has a lot to do with most carriers in Michigan, and none of what they do is good. If they are bullets, they will be broken open. If it's a shooting mat, it will be wet.
    No matter what it is, it must make the customary trip down the stairway, to the puddle of hydraulic fluid...
    I imagine this last step incorporated into the conveyor system...

    I hear MBC has a separate packing level for shipments to the Mitt, that are unnecessary for the U.P. because they go through ST. Paul, MN.

    On the flip side.....

    I knew a woman that used to deliver for UPS. She had a package for someone that had moved, but continued to use their old address. She finally tracked them down at their new home. Asked whey they didn’t use their new address

    Customer replied “we kept our old mail box and brought it here so we wouldn’t have to change our address”

    And......don’t get all pissy when you demand customer signatures then no one is there. The driver’s world doesn’t revolve around you

    I honestly think I could have driven it from CA to N.H. for $218. What a great excuse to see the country.

    All our delivery drivers are great. The FedEx guy is the least friendly, if you want to call him that. But he’s still a nice guy.
