This fee-based service allows shippers to request the intercept of packages prior to delivery, providing greater flexibility in managing shipping needs. When you select UPS Delivery Intercept, The UPS Store can request that UPS perform one of the following actions: return to sender; deliver to another address; reschedule delivery; and will call.

Each carrier offers a declared value program. Because our locations are individually owned and operated, prices may vary. Contact your neighborhood location for declared value pricing.

What should I do if my shipment arrived damaged?

If you are the sender, immediately notify The UPS Store location that shipped your item(s) to report a damaged shipment and begin the claim process. Have the recipient save all packaging material. Once The UPS Store location reports the damaged package, the carrier that shipped your package will initiate an investigation and may or may not approve the claim upon successful completion of the investigation. If you are the recipient, contact the sender of the shipment to inform him or her that the shipment arrived damaged. Because the sender is the customer of The UPS Store, he or she will need to notify The UPS Store location that shipped the item(s) to report a damaged shipment and begin the claim process. Remember to save all packaging material.

If you are the sender, immediately notify The UPS Store location that shipped your item(s) to report the lost or stolen shipment and begin the claim process. Once The UPS Store location reports the damaged package, the carrier that shipped your item(s) will initiate an investigation and may or may not approve the claim upon successful completion of the investigation. If you are the recipient, contact the sender of the shipment to inform him or her that the shipment is lost or stolen. Because the sender is the customer of The UPS Store, he or she will need to notify The UPS Store location from which the item was shipped to report the lost or stolen shipment and begin the claim process.

What should I do if my shipment arrived late?

If you are the sender, immediately notify The UPS Store location that shipped the item(s) to report the late arrival of your shipment. For UPS shipments, the sender may be entitled to a UPS Guaranteed Service Refund. The UPS Store location will be able to submit a UPS Guaranteed Service Refund request for eligible service refunds on your shipment. Refund checks will be made payable to you for the amount up to the UPS retail rate for shipping charges, and up to the UPS retail accessorial rate for refundable service options. The UPS Store location will be able to choose whether the check will be mailed to your address or the address of The UPS Store location.
