Your right about the charges of UPS but let me tell you a little story: On
october 20 1997 I have places a order with Moss... a month after...No news
about the 400$ order, I called Moss to explain them that fact. The let me know
that I had to wait 90 days before making a claim for this. On January 20 1998 I
have sent them a fax explaining that fact and look what they sent me back..
Have started tracing proceedures with Postal Service on 1/20/98--they
advised us that it could take another 90 days to trace and process claim

Conclusion: NEVER MORE USPS.. I think it's better to pay 25$ for the UPS
brocker and have a tracking number for your parcel.. What do you think?
