    Over Maximum Limit**
    A Peak Surcharge will be applied to packages with an actual weight of more than 150 pounds (70 kg), or that exceed 108 inches (274 centimeters) in length or a total of 165 inches (419 centimeters) in length and girth combined, as measured to determine their billable weight.

    I'll be damned if I deliver anything over 150 lbs. They don't pay me enough to deal with that crap.

    I can barely handle the 100 lbers I get on my cars, 150 is just idiotic.

    Apparently “Over Maximum Limit” means nothing.

    Green horn here: does the "Over 135lb" exception not mean anything?
    I haven't ever tried it and I know better than to ask a supe.
    Only thing that I have hated is the trampolines but I had a helper then.

    Oh joy my helper is going to love me. Got a guy with a long uphill drive cant even con close to getting the truck up it always orders heavy stuff at Christmas. I drop the helper off and do the two adjacent streets then come back and watch them descend the driveway, soooo fun.

    Anything over 150 is getting left in the building.

    Not if they bury in the middle under two other irregs where you got no identification spa or address.

    Then I guess it’s going for a ride. If I can see it, I’m grabbing a couple of guys and we’re digging that MFer out.

    Or the actual weight on the package. Forget that, maybe it'll be a U-Line box with no weight at all on it.

    UPS is just looking out for us. They don’t want us hitting a plateau, they are slowly raising their weight limits to keep us at peak physical performance.

    It will show as a service failure and the OMS will tell you to void it and re-sheet as some BS thing they tell you like NI1 or NR1. You might even win the lottery that day and they will tell you to EC it!

    I wish there was a disposition code of "lying F*ks" I'd be using that one for everything.

    I hate them and their 200lb boxes. The only I can say good about those F*kers is that they make some top quality box that stay together when they ship their 200lb crap.

    My wealthy customers with mile long driveways and “DO NOT LEAVE AT GATE” notes in the DIAD, they won’t be getting their 150+ lb irregs.
