  • UPS = Useless Pathetic Service

    Apr 12, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The customer service center has polite people working in it.
    Cons: Do not receive items on time and they are frequently damaged.

    Summary: I have been in business for almost a year now and UPS has definitely not had a hand in my success. In fact UPS could very well have been my downfall. Why you wonder? The 3-day select program or any of their programs for that matter are not what they say ... read more

  • Get what you pay for

    Pros: You get package in 3days as long as there is no weekend or holidays involved.
    Cons: Sometimes packages arrive in crushed boxes or they sit in a warehouse for a day.

    Summary: I have had mixed experiences with UPS. Recently I placed two orders on a Sunday, July 12th. The orders both shipped the 13th, one will be here on the 15th, and the other the 16th. The funny part is that when you check tracking the 2nd package is just ... read more

    Pros: Still looking for some.
    Cons: Cost too much
    Lose packages
    Lie.

    Summary: I ordered some Mt. Bike handlebars on the 20th of February 2009 and went with 3 day select thinking I would see them the next Monday (23rd) or even Tuesday (24th). No way in hell, they estimated that it would be on the 25th so I guess I paid for 5 day ... read more

  • Holiday shipping with UPS is a fulltime job

    Feb 14, 2009 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Usually reliable delivery
    Usually courteous service
    Cons: not honest about limitations, onus on customer to do their job for them

    Summary: We brought a small package of holiday gifts to our local UPS outlet on December 18, paid over $30 for 3-day delivery, and were assured the package would arrive before Christmas.  By the time it arrived, on December 31, I was working overseas, and it ... read more

  • UPS = Ultimate Poor Service

    Nov 21, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: They eventually answered the phone
    Cons: Any shipping company is better than UPS!

    Summary: Why would anyone ship with this company? I paid extra for three day select and it was scheduled to arrive before a holiday. I absolutely needed this package to arrive on time that is why I paid extra for three day select. Instead UPS shipped the package ... read more

  • Don't pay for expedited shipping

    Jul 28, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheap Ground shipping
    Cons: Can't handle fast shipping very well.

    Summary: UPS is great at ground shipping. Ship a package that is expected to arrive in 7 to 10 days and UPS usually has it there in 3 to 4 days. This week, I needed a package delivered FAST so I paid extra for 2 day air shipping. UPS did a great job of getting ... read more

  • Can't say enough terrible things

    May 31, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Slight bump in speed over UPS ground, but barely.
    Cons: Terrible package handling. Slow. Slow. Inane routes.

    Summary: I've had to deal with this shoddy "service" many times because of my continually defective Xbox 360 (that's a whole different story). Boxes come crushed and damage, with even some of the sealing tape ripped and torn, which is unheard of, even for UPS ... read more

  • UPS. Noun. Pronounced, "OOPS."

    Mar 30, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Delivery is relatively cheap.
    Cons: You get what you pay for.

    Summary: The only possible way a person could write a helpful review of this service would be for the reviewer to advise readers to look elsewhere for their domestic delivery needs. I have spent more hours on the phone with UPS than I have with any other ... read more

  • UPS Has Significant Logistics/Routing Issues To Resolve

    Dec 28, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Packages arrive, undamaged
    Cons: Packages arrive, late, later than ground in one experience

    Summary: What is 3 Day Select? 3 Day Select is UPS's 3-day guaranteed delivery service. While prices are variable, from what I've found, it's somewhat less expensive than FedEx Express Saver (also 3-day service) and DHL 2-day (2-day service so that's ... read more

  • Contributing to the Demise of E-commerce

    Mar 1, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Extensive network.
    Cons: Extensive network that doesn't work properly.

    Summary: United Parcel Service or UPS is a package delivery mainstay and yet is partially responsible for any downfall or deterioration of E-commerce. I really believe that. Why so harsh? Because more often than not, UPS fumbles on its promises to be able ... read more

  • UPS SUCKS!

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Sounds Good
    Cons: Delivery in 3 days is a JOKE! Poor customer service!

    Summary: A shipper ships a package to you that is picked up Friday evening at 8pm and it is 3 Day select you expect that you will receive by Wednesday the following week. Forget about it. UPS in their no wisdom customer service plan does not get the job done ... read more

  • Uses a 3 day calendar, just not one on this planet!

    May 6, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: NONE
    Cons: expensive and slow delivery

    Summary: UPS is certainly a strange animal. Their ground service really can't be beat in many cases because it is comparably very inexpensive and reasonably timely. Their overnight and two day services are basically neck and neck with the market leader in that ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Service, and Reliabillity
    Cons: cost

    Summary: UPS has been a household name since I can remember. They are quick, courteous and ususally on time. You can't miss the big brown truck that rides around like it owns the place nor the brown outfit of your local deliverer. UPS's services has always ... read more

    Pros: Fast, ability to track packages
    Cons: ????

    Summary: With all of my freebie hunting and online shopping, UPS is the mainstay of my delivery world. My front desk woman MUST know the UPS man on a first-name basis by now (she sure seems to know mine well!) - I get at least 2 packages a day! Seriously ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Fast, AFFORDABLE
    Cons: none

    Summary: I did a lot of internet shopping for the XMAS holidays. Many sites required that you order by December 19th in order to guarantee that you would receive your packages. I found that it is too costly to have them overnight packages to you, so this three ... read more

    Oct 31, 1999 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: This is a great option for heavy items that must be shipped quickly.
    Cons: Not like overnight.

    Summary: When UPS says 3 days they actually mean 2 days and a wake up! This service is, by far, the most cost effective and reliable shipping option in the UPS line up. I deal with UPS about 4 or 5 times a month, having items shipped to me. Most of the time I ... read more
