    Hi, maybe you can help. I sent a guitar via UPS Ground signature required. I ship dozens of guitars and always require a signature. In fact, when creating the shipping online, you have to specifically select to NOT have a signature required. The signature requirement is the default. Anyway, MYUPS shows the guitar was "left behind gate". The package was not there and no note was left on the door. I called UPS and they are telling me a signature was not required, but it was. So, the guitar has apparently been stolen, and I am being told a signature was not required I guess I am just :censored2::censored2::censored2::censored2::censored2: out of luck. Do I have any recourse?

    Got the 1Z tracking number handy? Just need the 9th and 10th digits to tell you whether it was signature required.

    I didn't select "deliver without signature" which is free. There isn't an option to require a signature, so that should mean a signature is required by default, correct? I always get a copy of the signature in the mail. This has never happened before.

    That's not a signature required package.

    So, how do you select a signature? The only option is to not require a signature when shipping from the web.

    If you insured it for $355, file a claim and UPS will have to pay for it. If you didn't pay for extra insurance, you get $100.

    File a claim and there will be an investigation. Your prematurely lamenting your lost $350.

    When you have a UPS account online, you have to pay $4.25 + shipping to receive a signature for a residential delivery. The default for residential is "no signature" Under "value added services" you would select "delivery confirmation" and then check the box for signature required

  20. Last time I checked, we don't have a "left at gate option" for dr'ing a package. How did you come up with this conclusion?
