Yes, and I dislike Fedex Ground. Because they have a stupid split between residential (Fedex Home)
and business (Fedex Ground). Lord help you if your business has been misrouted into the Home system,
because they won't deliver during business hours!
Anyway, at the top of the thread, I was talking about the expert packing at my local UPS STORE, not
commenting on how UPS itself handles the packages. That said, neither UPS nor Fedex have ever
screwed me over with a delivery. The US Postal Service is a whole other matter!
The local UPS Store lived up to its good name today. Family-owned business. Charged me only $20 to
properly box and pack a 70-freakin-pound dinosaur of a U-Matic video machine. Saved from the
dumpster, it's going to a video A-D transfer place.
