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.

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.

    • Wrong as usual.  If I vote for Trump and it turns out he doesn't do what he says he's going to do then I will get what I deserve.  I know this concept is hard for you and others to understand.  Let's take the list of Supreme Court Justices he says he going to choose from and all of the sudden he starts nominating from left field.  I will get what I deserve.  You will be trying to keep the drool off your keyboard.  
    • Meter: continuity check on wires and fuse separate  If it was me, just for piece of mind (not knowing other peoples electrical hack jobs. Id fish new ones on the old ones, pull them through connect to new receptacle. Likely a hack splice in there or damage. 
    • Join the Ice Castle Owners group on Facebook, lots of good info on their.  It is a private group so have a picture of your Ice Castle in your profile pic, otherwise they won't approve you.
    • I don't play the lesser of two evil games, it's only a game played and understood by the older crowd. Should I explain to you how our votes don't really count? Why don't we get than fixed first.
    • ramsey resident huh!!!! I see. I work right off alpine drive!!!!!!!
    • So if you vote for Hillary, you will get what you deserve, and if you vote for Trump you will not get what you deserve. That's actually pretty much what we've been saying all along...
    • So a bit of history here, my mom was diagnosed with lung cancer last august.  She was suppose to have her half lung removed in Nov last year, opened her up and the tumor was much larger and spread in the lung that they could not do the surgery.  She did daily radiation and added a dose of chemo twice a week during the radiation time.  This started in Nov and ended in Jan.  She went in for follow up and for a pain in her back in March.  The cancer had spread to her spine, ribs, where the chemo port was placed in her upper chest.  Yesterday, ten minutes after dad and i left her room in hospice she passed away.   She did the immunotherapy to extend her life and make it less painful.(there is a tv commercial for this drug).  It does not treat just makes the cancer more manageable for the patient.   This was done twice and she decided it was not doing anything.   So with dealing with anything like this, ask questions, research as much as possible, even if family members do not want your input, as i can tell you that people will get PO'd at you, you will get PO'd at them, but ultimately the only thing everyone is wanting a smooth and stress free resolution to this.   I, being the, if you will "the outsider" looking in, waited for other FM who live closer than i do, and eventually i was told that "we" will handle this not you.  I was very upset but decided that i will help from behind the scene.  Do what you can for you and your family.  I am a believer that if mom would not have been opened up, she may still be here or may have not had the cancer spread to other organs as quickly.  My thoughts, not a doctor, did not sleep in Motel 6, just going from the experiences in the last year.  Good luck to you and your family.  Jeff
    • Juice, you're not even in the right ball park on this one.  You're talking about fixing an injury and muscle relaxers, Jbell and his family is dealing with Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma which is slightly more serious and more complicated. I think you're going to have to admit this one is above your pay grade. You bring up valid points in that you can't always blindly trust a doctor.  You should take a proactive approach to your own medical care by asking a lot of questions, seeking 2nd opinions, and being informed.  However, there is a time and place to get up on your chiro soap box and I don't think this is one of them. In this case jbell's mother in law put her own life in jeopardy by not trusting the doctors.  Had she been more proactive and got informed versus just running away to the Witch Dr she could possibly have avoided a lot of additional pain and suffering and increased her odds at a successful outcome.    
    • I'm sure Obama is talking about Jill and I hate to say it but he would be right in that instance.  Any candidate that doesnt have an L behind his/her name Is terrible in your eyes.  If in 4 or 8 years Johnson does the Ric Flair flop again and happened to get the Republican nomination all those here supporting him would call him terrible.
    • Completely garbage. I've caught 6 sturgeon this season. My average by now is around 14 fish. Lots of skunk days before finally pinning one. I only know of a select few people that have done any good. I don't know why they're so hard to find this year. One day around the middle of the month I drove around for two solid hours until I finally marked a few fish that MIGHT have been sturgeon.    It's very frustrating to say the least.
