    There was a time when I loaded that I audibly heard glass shaking around inside and asked a sup about it and they just said to put it on the truck anyways... seems like that would tarnish your reputation as a company.

    The shipper is the idiot in this story. Putting an award plaque in an unpadded bag. The myth that everything moves through UPS facilities on velvet pillows must still be circulating.

    But yeah, facility should’ve RTS’d and noted the inadequate packaging.

    Surprised no one has seen this was clearly a repack box.

    Around 1:22-1:32 you can see the label that’s clearly on the black box. The bags were put on and another label was generated to place on them, probably from a damage clerk who decided the contents might have been ok.

    It’s all about shifting the blame from UPS back to the shipper via the customer who opens a repack package to discover it mangled. Then they can say “well the outside was ok, the people I ordered it from must have shipped it damaged in the first place.”

    Oh, and the woman laughing, add a broom and she’s ready for Halloween.

    It amazes me that we deliver anything that is in good condition. We are a small package network that is being destroyed by cases of paper and other things that are not irregs, but have no business being mixed in with small packages. 2 out of the 3 hubs that are local to me and my center all are designed to wreck packages.
    I am to the point where I hate when someone is meeting me at the truck.

    Or when a customer looks at you like you tore up their package. Hard to explain to them that a wall of paper fell on it, or some idiot unloader used it as a step stool.

    Customer looks at box, horrified
    Driver: "Ok bye!"

    I took a box off my truck for the same reason, sounded like a fifty pound box of broken glass. I pulled it off and my sup put it back in and said to deliver it. When I got to the house I knocked and told the owner it was broken turns out it was fine China. She was fuming. I called my sup and told him to hold on a moment and handed her my phone and she destroyed his soul. I never felt so happy in my life after that.

    I mean it makes no sense, if you can tell its broken, why deliver it? It makes your company look like :censored2: and they will forever know UPS as the people who broke their fine china. Then they'll tell two friends, and so on and so on. I mean I know they're a multi billion dollar company but they should still treat their customers like a mom and pop to some degree I think.
