UPS in Calgary, Alberta - Brokerage Charges after the fact.
A friend shipped a small package (1 Lb. @ 8X4X4 in.) valued at $120.00, from Los Angeles to Calgary, AB., Canada and a shipping cost was $23.00. I received the packaged along with a bill for $48 in extra fees. The fees included $37 for brokerage fees which is a computer transaction completed by a one fingered typist. Total cost of shipping $85. The same shipment if shipped by USPS (confirmed by them) would have been $25 for postage, $6 for Sales Tax and $5 for administration a total difference of $49. Needless to say US Postal Service is the way to go and the crooks at UPS will never get my business again.
UPS in Richardson, Texas - Christmas present didn't arrive on the 24th of December as guaranteed
My order was guarantee delivery for December 24th unfortunately that didn't happen. I assume it's because of the back orders and not weather related. The person that I purchased the present for will have to wait until the 27th. That's when I say "Happy belated Merry Christmas and sorry for using UPS.

UPS in Wallingford, Connecticut - I ordered a toy for my grandson with whom I was spending Christmas with on December 19th with 2 day shipping
I spent all of Christmas eve tracking a package that I ordered through Amazon (2 day shipping) because according to UPS it was "on time". I received notification around 4:00 pm that my package might be delayed. It was too late for me to get anything else because my grandson was coming at 5:00. He is 4 years old and I was devastated to have to tell him that I did not have a present for him. Our Christmas was ruined. I called ups and they blamed amazon for not getting it top them on time. Amazon, however said that they sent it out on December 20th.

UPS in Chicago, Illinois - Late delivery of pet insulin cost me $100. Grrrrrrr
My dog needed emergency insulin that was to be overnighted from Champaign Il to my Vet in E. Peoria Il but instead sat at the UPS depot which was just up the road from my vet. They would not let my vet pick up the pkg of insulin and we were forced to put him on human insulin in the meantime which cost me around $100 including special syringes! I will never use UPS ever again! Grrrrrr Very very very unhappy customer and it wasn't for Christmas either it was to save my dogs life! Chuck & Caron S Boland - Bartonville Il
UPS - Everyone that used shipping for their shopping
Your package late? That will teach you that there are brick and mortar stores in your town that you should be shopping at. Not only do you hurt your community but you are also breaking the law by not paying your state a use tax on everything you purchase on the internet. Shame on you for not shopping small and locally. Think about next year and shop local. Your small businesses need your support to stay open and your tax dollars stay in your community for streets, schools, police and fire departments. Keep your spending money local. Do you get customer service on the internet. Are you one of those people that go shopping local and waste store time explaining products and learning about your item then after wasting the small business time you go on line and order. People hate you for this.
Work For UPS Louisville
This company treats their Supervisors like ***. Every year they take something huge away and expect us not to be pissed off. This year my wife's insurance, she's pregnant but they don't care I have to pay an extra 5000 to have a baby. I just worked over a 12 hour shift on Christmas night and I have a manager that says family is important Yeah Right!! They do not care about their employees or your packages. We throw packages all night long, No one cares about customer service as long as the packages get on the plane. Since UPS went public all they care about is MONEY. We could have made service on all the packages if the CEO Davis wouldn't have shut down so many other air service centers ad put 1000's out of jobs. But he got one *** of a bonus for doing so. UPS has an account for a CEO and all they care about is numbers. Their employees and the consumers mean nothing to the company at this point. I am a 13 year employee and everyday I look to get out and find a job that has meaning and with a company that actually cares about its employees. Bottom line I work there and I use USPS to ship my packages. If it can break don't ship with UPS because we don't care about your package!!!!!!!!
UPS in Ivyland, Pennsylvania - Two day shipping, ordered 12/21 now to arrive 12/30?!? With no notifications? Seriously?!?
Carrier UPS did not deliver, and according to their site, even though it was a 2-day delivery to be received no later than 12/24; I am being informed that my shipment first went from KY to TX and is still in TEXAS and will not be delivered until DECEMBER 30th (I live in PA)! I am pissed, as this was a Christmas present I was to give to a family member today (12/25/13). Disappointed that I also did not receive any notification that the shipment was delayed or possibly going to be late. I had to go searching for info. on UPS.com site. According to Amazon.com account details, my estimated delivery date is still stating "no later than 12/24." Not good Amazon.com or UPS. Amazon points finger to you.
UPS in Highlands Ranch, Colorado - Christmas Grinch
My son in laws one and only gift for his wife, a beautiful bracelet never made it in time. It was supposed to be delivered Monday. After waiting and worrying we were told Tuesday. I Encountered the UPS delivery man in our neighborhood early afternoon of Christmas Eve. He could have cared less that he didn't have our package. More or less smirked and said it would most likely be delivered on Thursday. I really thought I would see another truck later that day. Nothing!! Overnight delivery obviously means nothing to UPS. I don't buy that they were overwhelmed, incompetent is more like it!!!
UPS in Seattle, Washington - Poor concern for their customers
My package arrived in my town at 5AM on Fri 20th. Waited Sat, no delivery. Waited all day Mon (stayed home from work--signature req'd) I kept calling ups to see how late they delivered, got 3 different answers: 5, 6, & 8PM. Finally went to bed at 8:30. Get up to find notice that they attempted delivery at 8:43 PM. So Tuesday I stay home from work again. Tracking still says it will arrive between 2:15 & 6:15, still no pkg. This is Christmas eve & I am in tears. Finally around 8PM it did arrive. Here's another issue. UPS has something called "My Choice" which you can sign up for. Its kind of confusing so I called the store & the guy said "I don't know anything about that. " Some Company! Use Fed Ex.
