I sent it out to STERLINGWORTH a shooter on here on April 6 and it never got there. Long story short they lost it and I didn't have insurance on it so there saying I won't get reimbursed even if its there fault. They said it got sent to lost mail and I may never see it again. That can't be right that if THEY lost it then they should pay me for it.

Do I have any options here?

Thanks

Not really... Unfortunately, you went cheap and did not pay the piper... even if it shows up damaged, you're also out of luck...

Sorry for your loss... Refund Sterlingworth if they already paid you...

Your parcel was sent to the Mail Recovery Center on 4/28. This happens most of the time when the addresses are somehow made unreadable. I sent you a MRC search form that I will send to them so it can be returned to you or forwarded to the addressee.

I'm pretty sure you will get your loader back, it's a unique item that the MRC should have no problem finding.

When you get the parcel back and are able to see it, let us know what happened to the address.

Postmaster tim is going out of his way to help. Good for him and I hope it all works out.

Next time buy the insurance for shipping anything over 100 bucks. Under that its covered or at least it used to be.

Let me put this another way. In any other kind of business, when the business screws up the business pays the penalty for their screw up. In the delivery business the business charges the customer a penalty for the business screwing up (you lose your item) and if you want to be insured against the business's screwing up the same business that charges you a penalty for screwing up will sell you insurance against them screwing up which they oftentimes refuse to pay anyway.

For what it's worth, insurance on items sent USPS is very reasonable. Anytime I ship anything of any value I insure it for replacement value. I just sent my son in the Marines his Samsung Tablet and insured it for replacement value($200). The insurance was virtually nothing cost wise but gave me big piece of mind.

Postmastertim gets the good citizen award in my book for going above and beyond the call of duty. May good things come his way in return. Bravo Tim.

I always have tracking, large items I insure. That way they know they will pay in the long run.

I sent a gun through UPS in my NEW gun case. My new aluminum gun case. They UPS put a fist size dent on the top, tore off a peg and scratched the hell out of the case. I called them and they did send someone out to look at it but you could tell they didn't want to. She was cold and it was clear she wanted to stone wall the issue. She said that I had to have the receipt for the case and it can't be over 30 days. I smiled and reached into my top pocket and pulled it out. The look on her face was so great. SHe wasn't at all happy to see that piece of paper. LOL. She wrote a check for the full amount.

Always, always get a tracking number with UPS or USPS it gets scanned at every place it is removed from the truck, and again when put on another truck. and it gives the date and time of each scan.

I don't think your's is lost. The package is probably being held in the evidence locker for your trial on federal charges of mailing prohibited items. Watch for them on the exhibits table. "If it fits" brings new meaning in the big house.

@Stump - Come on, you can't be serious. Everyone knows you can't send ammo through the U.S. Mail. If you did, then hope and pray it was lost or stolen and not held for evidence.
