I do not recommend using UPS if you can use anyone else. My first experience using them I had purchased a brand new heavy duty box for about $14. I carefully packed all the things going in there using bedding to pad things that were slightly fragile (and I mean slightly, we are talking sewing box here). When it arrived at my parents home it looked like it had been dropped out of a plane and the handle of the sewing box was broken. Some years later my dad, who is an expert at packaging things, sent me a little thing that was supposed to have a light that comes on when you turn the lights off, it arrived with a piece broken, which was fixable, but the light never came on. Package also looked very abused when it arrived. I also had an incident where I left the signed slip on my door so they could leave the package for me the next time only to return home to a final notice stuck to my door next to the signed one and no package. I was unable to receive that delivery as I did not have transportation to get 30 miles out to the UPS place to pick it up. My room mate also had them do something like that to her where she was at home, expecting a delivery, heard someone on the stairs, waited to hear a knock but no knock, then heard something pat the door. She went to the door and found the sticker and the truck was driving away, he never knocked at all!
