What should I do if my package was damaged?

If you've received a damaged package, you'll need to contact the sender to start a claim.

If you're the sender, you'll need to contact your local UPS office. You'll need to send the following items to the claims office:

  • A bill, including your signature, for the goods that have been damaged.
  • A copy of the original invoice or statement showing the value of the merchandise.
  • A copy of the original shipping receipt.

To avoid damage, check out a few basic tips we put together that can help get your package to its destination safe and sound.
