For her birthday on Jan. 27, I mailed w/USPS my adult niece a pearl necklace on Jan.11 from Charlotte, NC to Cary, NC, with estimated delivery of Mon, Jan.14…. it was never delivered and no one knows where it is. It was in a 7 x 9 package. Unbelievably disgusting, and I can’t replace it It is a one-of-a-kind piece. I don’t know why there so much incompetence and /or thievery.

I watch a few eBay videos but I think YOU took the top spot 🙂 February 8, 2019 Reply Jillian A box that often gets overlooked is the USPS board game box. It’s about the width of the rectangular medium flat rate, but almost twice as long. I believe the cost is about $18 to send. If you sell wholesale clothing lots on sites like eBay, you can stuff about 20 pieces inside. Works great for quilts and blankets too.

February 20, 2019 Reply petedogg369 None of those boxes are a deal. I'll teach you how to save.. Here it goes.. If you sell on Ebay order regional rate boxes from the post office, totally free to have them sent to you. Not many people even know they exist. When you go to print your label choose the regional rate box from the package list, either A or B depending on which you had to use. You will see it's usually way cheaper. February 20, 2019 Reply Mark T FedEx belongs is prison….worthless criminal enterprise February 21, 2019 Reply Tom Gallagher Good video, but you should correct yourself on the large flat rate vs the large regional rate box. Not the same! Regional prices are based on zones 1 – 9. with different weight limits. I find the "National Zone Charts Matrix" very confusing. You are not able to list an estimated a price if buyer's destination is not known. February 21, 2019 Reply Subish P. aww! maybe next time February 22, 2019 Reply Lynn Palmquist Love your channel. Xoxo February 22, 2019 Reply Ben Perry Note: the large box example mentions the word Regional on the bigger one, so that one is likely limited in distance compared to the other. So if your sending to more remote destination (ie:Hawaii, Alsaka), might not be useable..be advised. March 1, 2019 Reply Baby Volk Deals 4 days!

March 8, 2019 Reply Whats In My Life 2017 A lot of this video isn’t right. You can’t compare a priority flat rate box to a regular flat rate box. Flat rate is one charge up to 70 pounds. Regular priority is charged per pound and/or location. Good energy explaining though! March 11, 2019 Reply Jackson Bray Do you have a box I can send an elephant in? March 13, 2019 Reply Lorenzo J.

I am in desperate need of this item and very very anxious now I have heard this as I was expecting to be able to get out of bed with more ease today? tracking number 1ZT0G78ZD920004819 I am wondering what I can do as we paid for express delivery and was told all was ok then the battery thing came up, sounds like an excuse to me for something, either way it is not going to be here today as promised and paid for? UPDATE; now 11th April and still its in UK although the battery issue was resolved and we were told as I am disabled it would be given urgent attention but still its in UK and the sender has not been told why? It occurred on: 8/04/2019 This meant that I am disabled with a muscle wasting disease and bedridden, I need the patient hoist to get from my bed to my wheelchair and commode and back to bed etc, no one knows the frustration of this who has not experienced it? Get it here……….. I look forward to your prompt response on this matter. As recommended by Trading Standards, I would like to keep a complete record of my case, so please reply back via this email account.

I have a question. I’m hoping someone reading through the comments can answer it. Say I’m shipping something through priority mail, and I use a regular priority mail box, can I crumple up and use a few priority mail tyvek envelopes as packing material to fill the empty spaces? Also, say I am again using a priority mail box, to ship priority mail, can I use the padded flat rate envelope to protect items inside? Can I get in trouble for doing this? I’m other words, would this be considered a criminal offense resulting in a misdemeanor charge etc? I mean I know not to use priority mail if I’m not shipping through priority mail, but I mean, in this case, I am shipping through priority mail, so why not make the free supplies useful?

Heavy duty construction or a lighter duty version. Personally, I don't care how much it costs to ship. (I mean, it costs what it costs). I prefer that the merchandise I'm shipping to my destination, arrives intact. USPS carriers are not supposed to mis-handle parcels (tossing and stacking) but, they handle more delivery packages around the holidays than the rest of the year combined. Real life dictates that a properly prepared, secured and packaged item, will arrive safely to it's destination. Otherwise it ends up in a pile with ten thousand other shoddily prepared over stuffed mis-fit parcels, in a land called "busted open improperly prepared parcelville warehouse". As far as re-shipping from Amazon (or other locations), again, I'd prefer to prepare the package for re-delivery and afford the additional expense. All the shipping employees are paid ok, and each has their job to do (God Bless them all) but I take the responsibility to assure the best possible "packing job" is done in such a way so I can sleep at night. PS Christmas is the birthday of Jesus Christ. (who can comprehend this?) so typically, I mail my important gift packages about 7 to 10 days into the new year. To me, this make sense.
