Ice fishing stuff stolen

11 posts in this topic

Some butthead (s) took a package off of my front door step while I was in Lutsen snowboarding last weekend for a couple days. I had gotten a replacement portable cover from Shappell and some post clips. A replacement canopy for the whole thing not a cover for a sled. Worst part is that the warranty has been fullfilled because they did send the item and now I have to pay for one if I want a new one. UPS sucks for ringing the doorbell and leaving. This stuff would have been worthless to anyone without the frame so it is probably in a dumpster somewhere. UGH!!!!

talk to UPS and see if they will do anything about it, I agree more than once I have had a package left in plain view. they should not leave stuff out in the open, just my two cents!

contact ups. If they can't help contact shappell. It's too bad people do this kind of stuff.

I believe if ups does not have a signature from you they are responsible.I had that happen to me with some reel parts and they replaced the items for me.

I contacted Shappell because UPS states that the sender must file the claim. Hopefully Shappell wil work with me and insurance will be enough to cover a new top. The guy at Shappell was nice enough to send me new pole clips so I can at least use the house, even after I was far from nice to him about the whole situation before realizing it was out of his hands. Sorry again Mark, it has been a real bad week.

Hopefully all will work out. And the butthead will get his.

It is too bad that some people feel the need to be toads just for the sake of being a toad. That just plain old sucks.

Hope you can work out something to get what you need.

You may want to contact the credit card company, if you used one. They may be able to help.

I agree with contacting the CC company. Also the vendor you bought it from. They should have it insured for this type of thing. I don't understand why UPS just leaves things, this is why I have it dropped at work and not home. The post office won't leave stuff like that, they have you come and pick it up.

I mail and receive a lot of stuff for work, Fedex, UPS, USPS. Pretty much all of them require a signature but the SENDER can put on there "no sig required". At that point it would be Shappell's fault. Best bet is to get them to file a claim, but they will be resistant if this was the route they went. At that point I would contact the CC company.

Might be able to get a hold of the driver for future deliveries. I know my parents have there packages set inside the garage or around back.

Personally I get all my packages sent to my work, so I know there will be someone there to receive it.
