Lots of members buy and sell watches here, I was wondering what kind of experiences you have with USPS and others?
Most members I've bought from use USPS because it’s the cheapest and gets close to the address with success.
I say close because I can’t seem to receive my package at my door, instead I get a stick-em on the door that they were here, and I end up waiting for the next business day to drive into the city and pick it up.
Again it happened yesterday, 9am USPS was here, and left a stick-em. My doorbell works good (very loud), and I have a little dog that puts up a fuss when someone knocks on the door.
I think the USPS carrier fills out the stick-em slip in his vehicle, sticks it on the door and walks away routinely to get his/her route done early, its like they don't care.
Checked USPS complaints, hundreds if not thousands, and consumer affairs are loaded. I’m sure the other shipping companies have complaints, I didn't look them up because they make a better effort to deliver to my door.
The next time I buy a watch from a member, I'll offer to pay the difference to have it shipped FedEx.
When I get stuff via FedEx, somebody actually knocks on the door and I can enjoy opening my package minutes later . Another thing is FexEX and UPS have real live tracking, while USPS tracking is a joke, you only see were your package is as its leaving, two days later no info and don’t bother calling.
Let us know what your experiences are, I’m curious and this would be good for all of us to hear.
