Best Laid Plans IV - Or UPS the Pirates in Brown
The latest update on my troubles with UPS. The package was refused and to be returned to the shipper. I received a distraught email from him saying that UPS wanted to charged him $55 in U.S. customs and related fees to re-import the package back into the States. Note that the package never cleared Canada Customs so in terms of tariffs, effectively never left the US. We have agreed that I will accept the package just so the minis don't wind up in the trash or some UPS employees pocket but of course UPS still wants to charge me for the privilege of delivering the package entirely on their terms. More to follow.
