Had to load a 145 lb air conditioner this morning.
ing thing weighs more than I do.
150lbs is the max
He is new
There has always been a weight limit.
It started at 50 lbs, then went to 70 lbs, and finally limits out at 150 lbs.
ARTICLE 44. OVER 70 POUND SERVICE PACKAGE HANDLING
This is the Article in the Master Language to read.
Are you @hehe xd
150 lb is the max that SHOULD be
However we know that many pkgs are far heavier than is indicated. That includes the weight indicated by the manufacturer specs on the packaging and not UPS label (if you know revenue recovery you understand this)
I have had A/Cs that weigh 160 or 170 and the packaging indicates under 150
Just message that you need help because is over 70 and you dont feel safe moving it by yourself.
My limit is depending on the package size and if i have to take it up the stairs, otherwise DR GARAGE.
Went out with my manager and he instructed me to leave a bouncing thing(ring?) right on the sidewalk.
... and if you did, you fail at being a union member.
My building has a 240 lb generator that came through the system to us.
It has been sitting for months waiting for a freight pickup.
That's overly harsh.
He appears to make a personal decision on individual delivery situations.
It's not a requirement to call for help.... its an option. (that more drivers should use)
I don't get it
In May or so, our over-150s are just sitting out for over a month now. just charge the shipper and get a freight truck to pick it up in the late morning?
Why are we just sitting on them?
UPS should make it part of their shipping contract that ANY package caught in the system that weighs over 150 pounds will automatically become property of UPS and will be sold at an auction. (If I ruled the world..........)
It’s funny how many packages we haul that are exactly 150 lbs.
I see packages daily in excess of 100lbs that have a UPS label of 1-5lbs.
Timely movement of erroneously shipped freight packages isn't on anyone's balanced scorecard. You get what you measure.
I no saw what appeared to be a queen size mattress one day. I was in shock.
Shipper name, Overstock.com.
we are waiting on the shipper to get it picked up
When it hits 200pds they’ll skim over it in the contract.
