    New Delivery Methods

    I also have had a problem with M..W.., they shipped by UPS, and requested final delivery by USPS????? I live 25 miles east of Los Angeles and UPS , FEDEX drive by daily. Why would they request to change shippers? This caused delivery to be delayed by 4 days. This drives me nuts waiting for my parts ( kinda like waiting for candy ). A total delivery of 10 days ??? Their prices are very fair but delivery is very poor.

    I did finally get my MW order and it took 8 days with this USPS crap. It sat in a PO 250 miles from my house for 2 day, then one 30 miles from my house, then 2 day at my local PO. Yet package 1 of 2 took only three days UPS all the way. Go figure.
    I really like midway but I will request UPS all the way from now on or I will be moving on also.

    I was told by my UPS delivery person that UPS has added a program to their computers that will redirect a package from the Post Office to UPS delivery IF there is another UPS package scheduled to be delivered to your address the same day as the other package was scheduled to be delivered to USPS. He showed me the difference in the tracking numbers, since one of the packages he brought would have normally been delivered to the Post Office for delivery, but we had another package to be delivered that day, so he brought both of them. There are the letters "PO" in the tracking number that would normally go to the Post Office.

    He also told me that they deliver about half a van load of packages to our small Post Office just about every day, but that during the Christmas season, they will deliver the equivalent of a full van load to the PO.

    Hope this helps.
