    Well it just so happens that UPS got you. I bet you can find 1000's of stories of about the same thing happening with all carriers.

    So I guess you need to give up shipping or receiving stuff.

    HOLY CRAP... This is why I always double the insurance value of my packages... it seems like a lot of money up front, but if it was a 10k engine, I totally would have put insurance for 20k... How they managed to auction the SOB off ... WOW... I would have been livid.

    I once sent off a Sig to Sig's Custom Shop, when it came back it was suppossed to be an adult signature... It all worked out.

    Before you spend extra on insurance look into it. Most carriers are not going to pay more than what they determine is the value of what you ship. A UPS a**hole once told me he would not allow any insurance on an antique handgun, because they would have to pay me in cash as antique guns are hard to find. And we wonder why they are big poop brown.

    Holy hell. I think the only way I'd handle that kind of money would be to wire it.

    I'd require a Wells Fargo stage - with Jim Hardie riding shotgun.

    The 2 locations were around 300 miles apart, 6 hours one way according to directions.

    Yeah, I would have driven that far to get that kind of money, even if it was in Canadian currency.

    Yeah, but still get a bank draft, cheque or something. Anything but getting pulled over in a piece of shit town with a bucket of cash in your car.
