Tips From A Former UPS Worker On Making Sure Your Package Gets Delivered Safely

UPS delivers about 16 MILLION packages every single day (and you thought YOUR to-do list was big!). So how do you make sure your package doesn’t get trashed along the way?

A former UPS worker gives the following tips to help out…

  1. Don’t bother writing “FRAGILE” on the box. Each handler loads about 250 packages an hour…chances are they won’t see it. Or won’t care.
  2. Disguise your package as a gift. Handlers will definitely take special care of a package if it looks like a kid put it together. Put stickers on it. Hand write messages in crayon. No one wants to ruin a kid’s efforts.
  3. Remove EVERY old sticker on an old box. Scanners scan the first barcode they come across, so if there’s an old one there, your package could get lost.
  4. Follow instructions. If your package IS lost or damaged, you could get reimbursed, but all their instructions need to be followed first…like using a NEW box, not over-packing it, using wide tape, and waterproof what’s inside.
