USPS denies insurance claims too and is a pain in the neck with WORTHLESS tracking unless you utilize Express Mail-it cannot be tracked. My worthless $.02
USPS has DELIVERY CONFIRMATION which allows you to track your product, as for problems, never heard of any problems with the USPS at least not for me down here. My cousin ship off some parts from his Camaro weighing about 110lbs to NY and UPS ripped him a new asshole. Talking to one of the local clerks from the Post Office, they could of done for half the price. And remember UPS went up on their rates. Who told you Fedx and UPS were cheaper?
