About 2 weeks ago I sold a book and during shipping it received a FREE

Cracked case from the USPS. YEP Free! They are so gentle. Anyways I

bomb proof my books but it didnt help at all. I gave a full refund and 20 dollars to return the

book. (It came back last week). The book was sold for about 130 so I did a claim for 80 dollars

to cover my shipping costs back and forth and to ship to CGC to be re slabbed . I got to

say when I opened the mail yesterday I had a check for $80.00. WOW I thought it would

be MONTHS. Several Phone calls to argue. Nope. Nothing.

It was fast and easy to file a claim online (I sent a PDF of sale and 2 pics of case damage)

Gotta hand it to them on a fast refund.

It can go either way. Sometimes a check shows up in 3 days, sometimes you are strung out by the process. In my experience it has nothing at all to do with the strength of the claim.

I have had better experiences with USPS on than I have had with Fed Ex and UPS on Long Island.


Glad to see this worked out for you.

In general... other than them apparently playing kick ball with my packages... I've had a lot of positive experiences with the USPS too.


I've never had a problem with any of my insurance claims.
