I sent a fellow some Campagnolo SR levers-1976 vintage >$100(ebay) on 3-11-06.He emailed me yesterday3-24-06-"no levers and wondering why I didn't spend a few $$ more for tracking # insurance".
I checked USPS-they say it was delivered on 3-13-06 to "city zip code"-but they don't give an actual address.I did send it delivery confirmed for just this reason,but I have found that insurance for smallish amounts $100 or less-is close to worthless because of the hoops USPS makes you jump thru.I don't send it with a sig required because stuff never seems to get delivered that way-it returns because no one is ever home(plus cost of course).
What would you do.I have complained to USPS-they are supposed to get back to me.
The fellow lives in a tame neighborhood,so I doubt they were stolen off his porch.?
What would be fair if they never show up?Assume the USPS is worthless and say something like" it was delivered to whatever address was on the box",but they don't actually have a record of the actual address?
