FedEx FedEx stole about $10,000 from our business Greeley Colorado
We are a family owned business, just my wife and I. For years we used FedEx to ship our products to our customers. We had a daily pickup. We shipped about 50-120 packages per week through them. For a daily pickup, they charge about $11 per week.
They offer another service for those who don't ship very many packages. You have to call when you want them to come by and pick up packages. They charge an additional $3 per package pickup fee for on-call pickups. This is for people who only ship a couple of packages per week. Since we averaged about 75 packages per week the daily pickup is much cheaper.
FedEx turned off our daily pickup without our knowledge or consent. The driver wasn't notified either and kept coming daily. They did this for about two years before we caught it on our statement. They wound up charging us an additional $20,000 in per-package pickup fees. They claimed that there was an error with their system that accidentally switched our account.
We brought this to the attention of our FedEx representative. She said that FedEx is only liable for 6 months. This is their policy. We pushed back and she got FedEx to pay for 12 months. They would not pay for the full two years even though it was their mistake.
So FedEx made off with $10,000 of our money because we didn't catch it in time. It's like a thief who breaks into your house and steals something and gets away with it because he set his own statute of limitations.
Since then we've moved to UPS. We got better shipping rates and we are monitoring our weekly statement.
