    I ship Fed-Ex every week and have not lost a package yet. I hope that I don't run into the same problems you've had. My Rep will get his ass handed to him. You should have received a tracking number for your shipment that you could follow up on, all our customers get them by e-mail.

    When I pack our I imagine it will be dropped, kicked, tossed, run over, so I box it to meet those criteria. On top of the Fed-Ex computer label I add my own large type address label that a blind man could read. If the box is an odd shape then I use a lot of tape so it does not bust open.

    Most of the problems I've had with loss receiving shipments were due to substandard packing by the company or an incorrect address. I've had two boxes come in from Summit with pieces missing, usually heavy items like your springs. I have had packages stolen right from the front of our home too.

    The best advice I can give is to get hold of one person at FE that you can deal with repeatedly. Then stay on top of them until you get some results.

    There's nothing quite as frustrating as a missing box.

    I refuse to use fedex. I've used them like 20 times and out of that 20 times, only 3 times have went without a hitch :mad: I've NEVER had a problem with ups.

    I alway track the package. Fedex passed me by twice trying too deliver a flatbed scanner, LOL. So it took a extra week to get to me. Fedex seams too have the lower prices, so I do use them alot.

    Nope, the last time fedex was used(I had no choice in that matter as the stuff was shipped to me)fedex lost a set of springs. Coming from Texas to Oregon. I finally ended up getting the springs.....2 months later after they just about made a stop in every flippin state in the united states :mad: :mad: :mad:

    I HATE Fed Ex as well!!

    One time I paid for something to be deilvered 2nd day. I followed the tracking number and saw that it was in town on the 2nd day (Friday before Labor Day), but it's status was "Not scheduled for delivery until [the day after labor day]" I went down there and pitched a bitch and they said "Oh, no problem sir, let us go find it" 20 minutes later the 2 people there came back said "Oh, we can't find it back there... sorry" So I asked to speak to a manager, he came out, I explained everything to him and he goes back, looks on the floor right next to the door to the warehouse, reaches down, picks up the box and goes "Here you go"

    Something like this has happened a few other times as well... I absolutely hate the way they do business, and prefer UPS or even the Post Office to Fed Ex ANY day.

    It is sad to see that this is the way Fedex works but it make me feel better that I am not the only one.

    I think the mailman reads some of my magazines for awhile before delievering them. They seem a little late every now and then.

    I'd hate for my dad to come off as wierd as me, so just use your imagination

    Although I can tell you, one time, his truck caught on fire, he got out, kicked it, beat it out, burnt his hadns, and went back to delivering mail

    He was THE guy who delivered to the reservation too, nasty place
