    there are so many bad stories about the PO. Most times you can't collect on the insurance . Most of all The people Just don't care
    The more weight of The package the more chances it will get damages.
    I only use fedex ground big or small. , Not smartpost or fast post. As long as the PO does not handle it . They have no respect For Your property

    I used to get tractor parts in via USPS often. Many times for antiques, and some of the repro parts came from overseas. Their cardboard delaminates easy it seems. I can't tell you how many times I received shredded empty boxes that used to have cast iron parts.

    And yeah, the insurance is mostly good for them, not you.

    Wait till they loose a money order you bought from them and sent with their priority service.

    They wouldn't refund the postage on the lost mail, nor the mo fee, additionally there is a wait period and a FEE, they charge you, to mail you the new money order, after you PAY to do a search on it?

    Really.. Btdt..

    I try to avoid the USPS except on a very few items that you want a postmark as proof of date mailed, etc.

    If ups/fedex ever were to be allowed to start a 'standard mail' service, the USPS would fold in a year.

    I also put a post-it note inside the inner package with both addresses on it.
