When do I get concerned about USPS? - 05-02-2020, 04:53 PM

Sent a cue to Texas on Monday priority mail 2 day and it's not there.

Tracking is as follows:

Does this mean it's gone forever after being 3 days late priority mail? Never had this happen before and have shipped many cues like this. When do I start contacting the postal service? Can you even get a hold of them right now?

I did buy their insurance for the entire value but it was a pretty nice cue I put a lot of work into and losing it will really disappoint me and the buyer.

If anyone sees this cue somewhere other than Texas it's stolen from the mail.

At least you were thoughtful enough to buy insurance.. Good For You.
CONTACT USPO and have them put a trace on it.
Good Luck

Believe you have to wait 30 days to trace, then if it not found file insurance claim, then 30 - 45 days for payment.

Mine got here today, JC.

Thanks again.

The USPS lady came while I was standing in the front yard spraying off some windows with the water hose.

Couldn't wait to get in the house and open the box.

PERFECT.

I hope that package doesn't get lost. That is a BEAUTIFUL cue and the customer will really be missing out on a SUPER cue.

Keeping fingers crossed for you and the customer.

Aloha.

I imagine that the mail, and shipping in general is as screwed up as most other things are these days. I don’t know that I’d get too excited for another day or two.

But then again, i’d probably feel different if that beautiful cue was mine!

The OP made it...JC...John Chaplin of Coos Cues. http://www.cooscues.com/

This is the one he made for me and I just got less than an hour ago.

It is the better looking sister of that cue.

That’s one nice cue. What wood did you use? If I wanted just the butt what would that cost? Thanks

I am a fan of USPS v/s UPS, in all the years of sending and receiving USPS one claim when their Nucklehead mailman left my New Stetson in a Pouring Rainstorm.

The problem is some USPS Emplotee do not give a crap, do not scan packages eveerytime per their rules. They are like Shotgun with Broken Trigger Speings, Unforgeable because of their UNION.

But in defense of USPS they handle how many packages, and letters daily no problems.

I've been shipping and receiving packages and it's been willy nilly to say the least. Even letters taking way too many days.

I have one cue going from here in CT to Baltimore I mailed it on Apr 28 and for 4 days it's 50 miles from me stuck in Springfield, MA.

I've had similar with both Fedex and USPS.

Apparently it's due to very short staff due to covid-19. Lots of cqlling in sick, workers not wanting to handle packages and all.

Give it an extra day or 2 then if no real progress I'd suggest calling them to trace.

best,
