Too late now, statute of limitations will have run, but shou;ld have fiiled suit. USPS isn't cvered by sovereign immunity and they not only failed to live up to obligation under the insurance contract, they libeled you. Damages are presumed for per se libel, which they committed.good luck on gettting the postal service to pay for repairs...i can already tell you what the answer is...
even though im sure it was transfered legal, ect.
heres what that letter will say...
item was shipped in violation of the law, and not sent legally...so post office isnt repsonsible...
a couple years ago, i had a 1903A3 that i sold on GB to another FFL in TX...went from and to an FFL for transfer..
the stock was broken it 2, i sent him a replacement stock, he was happy, and then with pictures, ducuments with copies of FFLs, ect that was the responce., i got...so ,,i had my lawer send a letter basicly stating they were accusing my of a felony....and thati wanted 100.00 for the stock replacement, and now, 150.00 for legal fees,,, that was 2 years ago, no money, no responce.... waste of time.
That's funny as I've had damaged stuff from UPS and none from USPS. Actually, after 10+ years of buying and selling on GB and ebay I've never had an item damaged by USPS. Only from UPS.USPS or UPS? finloq said USPS which would square with my experience. I stopped using USPS Parcel Post years ago because they lost/busted a bunch of stuff.
A lot of you guys recommended priority mail so I decided to try them again. Sure enough, first thing I mailed Priority, a gunstock, came through broken. And because it was a cheap stock I didn't bother with the fairly expensive insurance, included in UPS and Fedex.
USPS - NEVER AGAIN!
Yeah, I'm thinkin' the same thing. My very small town PO is turning over people (regulars) lately. Too many new faces, too fast. No one knows my name anymore. WTF.you know until Dec of 2011, i had the best service from the usps..i ship large packages 3 times a week, and the rifle stock was the first claim i had with them.
well, now,,iv had slow service, lost packages, damaged goods...you name it...hate to say it...i wont use USPS for any shipping to CA. 3 times in a row, they took more then 10 days to deliver small boxes even though i only ship priority mail with insurance and comformation..
so somethings a foot at the postoffice./
