From what I'm reading, and a lot of people are posting they've never lost anything, is the fact that if you do lose something the customer service follow-up is absolutely worthless ....is that correct?

Because anyone can lose a package sooner or later but it's how you handle it afterwards that counts.

BTW,
The cost of the insurance is not going to be reimbursed on a lost item.

Also, generally if the item can't be repaired and insurance is paid in full for the total value, the USPS keeps the merchandise.

At least that is the way it was 10 years ago.

Terry,

I've been on both ends: USPS lost or stole three bows and have not paid the insurance (which was less half of what I could hve sold them here on the classifieds for.

They broke a bow I built and then never paid even though is was insured.

The broadhead used, regardless of how sharp, is nowhere as important as being able to place it in the correct spot.

My local postmaster suggested that I not waste money with buying insurance. He said if I have a claim and I do finally collect that I would be too tired to enjoy it.

Well, the 2 bows I posted about in the original message of this thread finally showed up. On the day I went in to file a claim, they started tracking again later that day... Who knows?? Makes no sense.. But I'm thankful they got to the destination unharmed.. I do think someone opened the box and took the bow out and repacked it... But... Maybe someone just wanted to test it out for a spell..

Blessings,
Steve

We'll guys I have heard these stories from about all carriers I know a fellow who shipped a item with ups they damaged it in shipping he had it insured and they refused to pay said he did not pack it properly. Had to hire an attorney to get then to pay. Also the post office USPS is independent not a government branch. And FedEx ground are independent contractors.

Terry we have have been fortunate to have had only one damaged bow claim never paid and from what I always here they say inadequate packaging.
The one lost Package we had They paid within in a week of the claim.

I believe the reason we have been so forunate on Damage is we only use a reinforced Triangle box. it won't roll off things like a round tube, and they can't stack on it

I believe Fedex and UPS is worse than USPS that is just me

You worked to hard and paid a lot of money for that new bow. Why would you trust protecting it to anything less than Thunderbird Epoxy!!!

Steve, tracking on the Thunderhorn said delivery Monday. It came today but they didn't leave it because I wasn't home to sign for it. Hope to pick it up Monday morning. At least you can rest certain that one of them made it. Hope the other two show up soon buddy.
