Hmmm. If you have a 2 billion dollar law suit against UPS... what is your LAWYER doing? Shouldn't he/she find the precedents!???!!?!

Well, whatever your business I just want to tell you that EXPEDIA uses UPS. UPS has the tradition to just leave the mail in the door of the recipient without anyone's signature. I'm one of UPS's victims too (thanks to EXPEDIA). That's was how EXPEDIA failed to deliver one of my tickets I bougth for them. Just for to alert everybody about UPS partnership with EXPEDIA read this: http://www.victimsofexpedia.com

Doe - is there any product or service out there that doesn't somehow tie into your "I hate Expedia" site? To the original poster - I think you will find that the "terms of service" you entered into when you shipped the package with UPS will exclude you from any consequential damages. Let's be honest, if UPS knew they would on the hook for $2B by shipping your package do you think they would ever have accepted it in the 1st place? The liability isn't worth the $30 they made off you.

Since this is your third rant since October, 2005, perhaps you should contact your compadre in Lansing, Jenny Jumpup. Since the two of you have mutual roots, I'm sure she'll be willing to help you. And deer, deer Doe: It rained here this morning, the water was absorbed by the ground, going into a well that supplied the water to operate the Maytag washer to clean my bed linen that was delivered to the store by UPS that Expedia uses where you didn't have enough sense to request a delivery be made with a signature requirement only--oh, h#ll--I've lost the connection as I think you have, too. The next time someone complains about rain, be sure to post it on m3c.

Hi Hugh_Jorgen: Not for now, I have only complained in my life once and it was because of EXPEDIA. It is the best way to alert travellers. By the way (no intention to offend you or anyone else) but if you have a little bit of common sense you should have noticed that I didn't ship through UPS, EXPEDIA did it and (for Ponnie) I had no way to choose for the "signature required" option. If you want to harass me or any other here use your brain please.

A Pennsylvania manufacturing company recently sued United Parcel Service (UPS) for its loss of over $395,000 in profits because UPS did not deliver the company's bid package on time. The company mailed a bid and samples of its product to a government agency in the Mid-West through UPS the day before the bid was due. The company's office manager spoke directly to the UPS driver and stressed the importance of timely delivery. UPS missed the next-day delivery, delivering the package one day late. Due to the missed deadline, the company lost the manufacturing contract. After investigating, the company discovered that if its samples had been reviewed and found acceptable its bid would likely have been accepted since its overall price was the lowest.
The company's lawsuit against UPS was dismissed. The UPS pre-printed shipping form clearly indicated that the package contents were insured up to $100 in value and that any special damages or consequential losses were not recoverable. The court found that the shipping form was a contract. While the print on the form was small and the office manager did not read or accept the language limiting UPS's liability, the court nevertheless found that the limiting language was binding.
Finding that UPS handles an "exceedingly high volume" of packages on a daily basis, the court observed that UPS was "justly entitled to reasonably limit their potential staggering monetary liability for the infinite possible panoply of consequential damages which could result from the failure to deliver one of those packages, due to the fact that the shipper has paid them a comparatively small sum of money for the package's delivery." The court concluded that it is unreasonable to expose any shipper to liability for enormous and unforeseeable damages in return for "an $11.75 shipment fee."
