Being that UPS and FedEX **** Canadian's on international shipping, I always try to use USPS whenever I can. In all the **** I've had shipped here only one thing was lost, a Torsen diff assembly. Three parts were shipped, axles, driveshaft and diff. Of those three two arrived at my home. Since then I've had a hate on for FedEX. USPS has never done me wrong.

USPS royally screwed me to the tune of about $120, and SENT THE ITEM back to me a few days after I dropped it off at the station. Had to tell the buyer it just wasn't going to happen, luckily he understood and didn't leave negative feedback. UPS did the same thing, cost me about $50 but they delivered the item before sending me random BS charges. Hence why I used FedEx to ship to you, they haven't done me wrong yet.

Do like me, make the seller ship it to a warehouse at the border of USA. Go retrieve your parts there and make the duty/custom declaration yourself! It saves me a lot of shipping and customs fees. But I live 300 km from the border I don't know about you.

yeah, i suck at shipping and i totally agree with this. i think pretty much everyone knows this on this and many other forums.
as for mspnp (and few other items actually...) - i shipped those several times throug local to my new office usps and guess what happened several times already? yeap, they all came back. i sent 3 international packages as well as 1 local and they all came back first time saying that i did not pay for their shipping when in fact i paid with my company credit and had bank statements to prove it. second time they ALL came back without any explanations.

today i am stopping by at dhl to drop everything off as my company account was finally activated yesterday and i can get rid of all the crap from my trunk finally. trust me - i dont like this situation at all and if i could, i would do something about it.

i did take my sweet *** time to ship all that **** initially though (few weeks) simply because im busy as ************ with my new position as a cto of pretty big company which makes me work 100+ hours a week (all local members who know me can tell you about it)

Don't use DHL!!! They are partially out of business, huge layoffs and workers who could give a **** about what is shipped at the moment.

At this point I really don't care about paying brokerage fee's, why not stop by a UPS store and send it off to me?

Why the big break in communication man? I shouldn't have to start a thread to get info out of you ...

Let me get this straight. You've been driving around for weeks with people's property (It is there since they paid you for it) in the trunk of your car? Seriously? What was your plan for when a crack head breaks into your car and steals all this ****? You ready to offer refunds?

I have found USPS Priority mail to be reasonable and efficient if you fill out the receipt request.

Ebay, Paypal, USPS, etc. are all flawed systems for sure, but the core problem is the immoral, unethical, broke-*** ************ who supplements his lacking income with pin-dick scams. Not accusing Urban, btw, just saying that my wallet is in my front pocket...
Sorry, Man. I've lost money too because of their worthless 'tracking.'

Lets just blame George W. Bush for the USPS worthlessness.. Everything else is his fault.

Glad to see Urban coming out of the woodwork and sorting this **** out.

There is no damn excuse Urban, USPS has 24/7 shipping ability, not to mention your serious lack of keeping people updated made you look even more shady. You claim to have had no time to ship the parts, yet spent countless hours on here since the items were paid for. Sounds like a big fat liar to me.
