NYC, NEW YORK -- Paid a lot of money to ship a keyboard to my daughter in NYC. It was not delivered on the expected date - despite saying it was out for delivery. Spoke to many UPS agents who knew nothing, were unhelpful and kept saying they will have the dispatch center call us - which of course they never did.

Spoke to several UPS customer service reps in the Philippines who were completely unhelpful. At one point they said they would connect me to a supervisor if I am willing to wait on the line for 20 minutes, and proceeded to disconnect me. The item was delivered the following day at 9:50pm! My daughter spent two whole days at home waiting for this delivery. Not one of their agents was helpful and they lied with impunity. Will never use UPS again.

PIECE OF **

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- I swear UPS and everyone who works there have got to be the most useless beings in history! Over and over again they have messed up my packages and deliveries. I had a replacement phone shipped next day air because my phone was stolen from the train and I had to wait months before being able to pay for a new one.

I finally order my new one on Saturday and it hasn't arrived yet. I am scared because UPS has left my packages downstairs next to my mailbox, but I live in AN APARTMENT BUILDING!!! People walk back and forth all the time and instead of ringing the bell or calling me they just leave it downstairs and my stuff has gotten stolen on several occasions!! They don't knock, they don't leave a note, they don't call, and all these bad reviews you would've thought corporate would have fixed this shit by now but NO! they haven't!

I HATE UPS and I wish that when I ordered things it would be shipped with FedEx or something because these guys are the biggest pieces of crap EVER! and I am NOT being nice to any more ups employees because they don't take care of their job in the first place! I am a New Yorker, and you don't play with our ** money.

Worst Postal Service Ever

MORRISVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA -- Sent a package from US to India on a Wednesday. I provided all the necessary information and phone numbers. The package was supposed to be delivered on Monday. But they abandoned the package saying the receiver could not be contacted (although the receiver did not even get a call).

I have been trying to reach the customer service for 3 days and every time I call, they tell me "Call during Indian business hours, call during EST, talk to our resolution team, talk to our brokerage team", for the past 3 days, but nothing has been done. Hands down, the worst postal service ever. When asked, the lady just told me "Maam, you have to keep calling every day until the package is released". Do I not have a job? Is it my fault that your resolution department is inefficient. Totally disappointed with the unprofessional service. Never going to UPS ever again.

TULSA, OKLAHOMA -- I was sent a package last week. The problem was that I had been rushed to the hospital the day of the delivery and ended up staying the night. When I came home the next day I found a SECOND notice saying they were taking it to some funky location that I never heard of miles away from home. I contacted customer service and told them what happened hoping they would bring it back here because I am not well enough to travel that far. They said the drivers try THREE times. Then why was it delivered somewhere else after only the SECOND attempt? They lie. Lie. Lie. I still don't have my package and the status hasn't changed since I called them last week.

HOUSTON, TEXAS -- UPS is the worst company I have dealt with. Nobody takes responsibility for tracking and delivery of package. Totally outrageous. Please do not use ups for shipping if it is important that the package has to be on time.

Broke Item, Refuse to Replace or Refund

RENTON, WASHINGTON -- They broke my very expensive item. They completely removed me from the claims process and absolutely refused to speak with me about the claim until they denied it. They disposed of the damaged portion of the box and returned my broken item to me in the remnants of the box. They refuse to replace the item. They refuse to refund the money I paid for shipping and handling. This company is a bunch of crooks, and there should be a class action lawsuit filed against them.

UPS Lost Package. Took 10 Phone Calls, Still No Refund

HAWAII -- I was moving from one island to another in Hawaii and an administrative assistant at my company offered to ship a couple boxes for me. After 2 weeks, one box had still not arrived and she called UPS who sent her paperwork to initiate a claim. I also called but they would not give me information because I wasn't technically the sender. I explained that it was all my things just being shipped by my company but that didn't seem to matter. Assistant did send the paperwork to me which I sent back to her and we thought that would be the end of it.

When nothing happened I called back again and was told to call a different number for the claim and I was told the claim has been closed. When the assistant checked on it they said they never received the paperwork and closed the claim. I filled out the paperwork again, send it back to the assistant to send it in again. When I called several days later to check the status I was informed the claim had been closed and the money has been paid to my company. I need to contact my company to get the refund for the missing package. When I called my company they said there is no such thing.

The admin. assistant called UPS again and this time they told her again the claim has been closed because they never received the paperwork AGAIN, which both her and I had emailed twice and she had also faxed. This is after I was just told by a customer service representative that the claim been closed because payment has been made. So I called back again, had to explain the whole situation again was directed to call someone else explain the whole situation again.

I was told then they didn't know why someone had said the claim had been paid, but that the claim was not processed again because of the lack of paperwork which should already been sent and twice. I asked to speak to a supervisor, explained the whole situation again. He said he would send the paperwork back out to the assistant since I was not technically the sender and he would call me to follow up the next day. I filled out the paperwork out for the third time and my assistant sent it in.

The next day I received no follow up call from the supervisor and I had to call again for the sixth or seventh time now where I was told that a refund has been processed and my company should receive a check within 10 days. I was also told they only pay up to $100 which was never known before so this was news to me, but at this point I'll take whatever I can get. The payment has not arrived yet but I'm hoping that this will finally settle that it has been over a month now and I have neither my package nor any refund and I have spent hours calling and emailing trying to get someone to help me with this.

This is the worst customer service experience of my life. Both myself and my assistant wasted so much time and no one did what they said, often giving me false information. If you place any value on your time, I definitely lost money due to all the time spent calling, telling them the same information over and over again, being directed to call other departments and other people, and filling out the same information 3 times. Next time, use Fedex and save yourself hours of headache and frustration.

UPS Is the Worst!

EDMOND, OKLAHOMA -- UPS is the WORST! I had to send my TV since I was moving to another state. I took it to the store and the manager from the UPS store sold me an insurance (if they didn't have an insurance I wouldn't have sent it) and saw that the TV was in the original box and told me the packaging was ok and it met the UPS requirements... I waited for my TV for a week or more to arrive. After it arrived I opened the box and my computer had the corners completely white, so now they won't respond for my TV. I paid for the insurance and now they are telling me they don't have an insurance. NEVER send a package with them, they won't take responsibility for it. THE WORST!!!

Lost Package

SOUTH CAROLINA -- On March 10, 2017 I sent a package to my grandsons in Annapolis, MD. This package was sent at a local authorized UPS shipper. The package got to Philadelphia, PA. It was tracked there and never left that location. This time was during a large storm in the area. I thought the weather was the holdup, but still no movement. I contacted my local shipper and they called UPS. They were told by UPS, that the package would be searched for and it would be settled in 2 to 3 business. UPS called my son and asked to speak to my grandsons (I had addressed the package to them).

He explained that they were in school and UPS could talk to him. He was questioned extensively about getting the package. He assured UPS that the package was indeed lost. Soon, they sent a driver to his house and he signed a paper saying he did not get the package. We kept contacting UPS by chat and email. Only one email was answered and the response was, "I hope we can Win back your trust." Not one word about what was happening. UPS wanted an itemized list of the package's contents as well as original receipts. I explained the package contained clothing and the receipts were in the box in case they needed to exchanged.

The shipper called back and was told that the package had been located and was being shipped back to me. We called later and we were told that UPS had called and spoke with my 12 year grandson and he had the package. If you think UPS is limited to the truth, you are sadly mistaken. As of today (4/19/17), the package is supposedly out for delivery to Annapolis, MD. My estimation is that UPS probably spent over a thousand dollars to keep from paying a hundred dollars. Not only did they fail to do anything in a timely manner, they were never apologetic or truthful. Never again will I ship UPS. From now on, it's USPS or FedEx.

Thanks For Christmas

NEW JERSEY -- UPS is the worst. I have a package that is too large for me to take to a UPS store that needs to be delivered by Christmas. Yesterday, I called UPS Customer Service and scheduled pickup for today. The woman with whom I spoke seemed almost drunk. I explained that the package had to be picked up today because I have to catch a plane at 5 am tomorrow morning. I also told her that I needed it picked up this morning because I had a hair appointment at noon and would likely be busy thereafter.

I was on the phone for over 1/2 hour, the majority of which time was taken up repeating my credit card number over and over again because she couldn't get the number right and explaining, also over and over again, why I couldn't schedule pickup at a block of time that included noon or the hours thereafter. She would say "10 to 2" and I would tell her that the slot wouldn't work. Then she'd say "9 to 1" and I tell her that this wouldn't work for me. Finally, after multiple tries, she claimed to have booked me between 8 and 11.

This morning, I waited and waited. I called at 10 and was assured the truck was coming. I cancelled my hair appointment and continued to wait. At 11:45, I called UPS Customer Service, only to find out that I was never booked for today. The woman I spoke with rescheduled me for between 5 and 8 tonight.

I rushed home, arriving at 4:30. It is now after 9. I just called Customer Service again. They said I'm still on the schedule for tonight, but they have no way of knowing when the driver will get to my house. I have to be up at 2:30 am to get to the airport. Thanks for being so unreliable, UPS. I can't wait to tell my nephew that his present will be late because I made the mistake of having confidence in you. Next time, I'll go FedEx.
