I've never had a problem with UPS. The only thing that arrived damaged
here via UPS had been packed atrociously, was originally addressed to
the wrong destination in another state, and, I suspect, was trashed to
begin with.

I'll forgo the details, since I don't have proof of that last, but I
don't recall ever seeing the party in question here, at least.

I once worked in a largish warehouse where we got stuff via UPS every
day. No problems with UPS then, either.
