    Anyone else have a BAD experience with the US post Office ?

    I shipped a metal detector to a person and the Post office said it should be there 1/14/2019 Now it did not show up and It now just says shipping delayed and no one can find it/ Anyone else have a bad experience that can share and make me feel better of a POSITIVE RESULT ? Like how long over due was your delivery ?

    The US Postal Service is definitely not what it once was. Employees that now have no sense of urgency, just there for the paycheck.
    I have items damaged almost daily from being jammed, stuffed, or crammed into my mail box.
    At one time the postman would leave what didn't fit the mailbox on my porch.
    Hope it shows up soon.

    Ive had empty boxes delivered. Apparently the PO believed the business sent me an empty box because one of their employees would never remove the contents of a box, tape it up and deliver it to me....

    Get all the info you can, don't stop calling and demand your shipping money plus cost of contents be refunded. But be polite

    If shipping a detector you should always use signature required and insurance, doesn't matter if it is Postal, UPS or Fedex.

    Hope it works out for you.

    The insurance guarantees you get your money for the lost detector, the signature protects you if the buyer says he didnt receive it.

    All the freakin" time...usually use "USPS Priority Mail"...and I track that sucker every step of the way... That way if somebody states that it did not make it to XYZ USA...I can say..."Well...according to your USPS tracking log it was in Blah Blah Blah on (Insert date here) and in Blah Blah Blah on this date...So I suggest you find it because it's showing that you are the last one to see it" (Insert last post office to see package)

    If I am correct, the postal union is no longer if effect. They will hire anybody off the street. For the last three years I have sent a package to my brother before Christmas, and the first two years they actually sent the package back to me. This last Christmas they never even left a note that they were holding it at the post office. It sat there on the shelf for three weeks until my brother went down there at my insistance that he go and check it out. The mail carrier never left a note. There is no excuse. If you don't want to loose your parcel, sent it through another service.

    In the future, only use FedEx period! The United States Pulverizing Service can't be trusted, especially if you have insured your package or if it has Fragile written on it. Hope your package finds its way to where its suppose to go.

    I have had mixed service from USPS and agree with TH and insure and signature required on all expensive items (you determine what falls into that category). I receive a lot of items, no problem, maybe a little dirty or dented box but items inside A-okay. Have also had the problem of having empty packages delivered (really? like an empty, opened mailer with nothing is what was ordered?), and I question why someone other than the wonderful person who opened or damaged the package did not call a halt to the mail and have it taken care of or notice sent about it. Lost two batteries for an LG G5 cell phone, envelope was empty and it still got delivered. Also had deliveries that never updated on status only to show a month later. Not sure any delivery service is much better, take your chances and cover your shipment as best you can.

    I shipped a clock to myself from Korea to Guam one time. I was in Korea on EML orders and doing a little shopping. It was insured so, after about 30 days of waiting i filed a claim with the post office. They paid the claim and i forgot about it. About a year later the clock showed up at my door. By the post marks on the package, it had been all over the place. Hawaii, Washington, Alaska and California! My address was clearly marked and no reason was given as to what happened. Anyhow, I contacted the local post office because i had received money for the claim. They told me to keep the clock and the claim money. That was back in the 1980's
