I shipped a Beautiful Bicycle which was destroyed by UPS over Christmas. This Claim was denied by UPS. They say a bicycle box is not strong enough to hold bicycles. The used bicycle shipping box was perfect when it was shipped.
No box could withstand the forces UPS put on this box. It was likely dropped several times on the end, despite the up arrows.
This box safely carried a bicycle 13,000 miles and delivered it in perfect condition. UPS destroyed it in 1200 miles.
Its ironic that Chinese dock workers, and non union persons delivered the first bike halfway around the world without a mark on the box. and those overpaid union pigs at UPS ruined it in a trip to Las Vegas. A simple web search will produce hundreds of damage claims denied for no good reason. They seem to just take the insurance money and deny everything. Check Consumer Affairs about UPS. The dont care how they treat your stuff and wont pay for the damages their indifference causes.
Remember this if you ship a bicycle, your at your own risk, as they will deny the claim.
DO NOT SHIP WITH UPS, unless you dont care about your items
We need a class action suit. They accepted the merchandise as packed and took the insurance money with the item in plain sight.
