no more UPS!

   I used to work for a company that maintained, refurbished and resold
HP3000 systems and peripherals. When we started getting complaints about
terminals shipped by UPS arriving broken, my boss met with a UPS
representative at the warehouse. When the UPS rep told him that it was
because the terminals were improperly packed, my boss walked over to a
random four high stack of "ET" terminals packed in our standard shipping
boxes, reached up and shoved the top box off the stack. After it hit the
floor he unpacked it, and it was undamaged. Obviously UPS was dropping
them from a height of greater than 7 feet, or so.
