"Damaged by Mechanical Equipment"
« on: March 18, 2021, 02:10:03 AM »
Has this ever happened to anybody? Not that long ago I received some pony mail and on the package was a sticker that read "Damaged by mechanical equipment. Please accept our apology. US Postal Service." I provided a picture of it in the link. Now, of course this made me extremely nervous when I read that! The package wasn't torn, though, just slightly dirty, perhaps. Also, luckily, my items weren't ruined and were perfectly fine. I had some pony wear that didn't contain any shoes or extra pieces. It was all flat fabric pieces.

However, I have to wonder, IF my mail had been damaged, what could I have done? I couldn't blame it on the seller because the USPS took responsibility. Would I have just lost my money AND what I paid for? Has this kind of thing ever happened to anybody and what did you do? I feel extremely lucky that nothing was damaged...still not sure what happened during the process of this pony mail!

Yeah, sometimes mail gets stuck in the sorting machines and gets torn, or a box will get slightly crushed, etc. They will usually put a sticker on it, or if the mail was opened in the incident they will put it in a new bag with a sticker on it and send it on the way. I've even gotten spam mail (like fliers and stuff) with the notification that it was damaged by machines.  I would think that you could still place a claim with USPS if the package was sent priority.
