Recently sent a 20 lb- 7 oz box from FL to VA Fuel prices are at the lowest prices in 7 years but I was charged an additional $2.80 as a fuel surcharge. Couldn't believe they were still doing it. And because I placed a few boxes combined in a big box, the clerk whipped out his tape measure, measured the box three ways and I had to pay an over sized box fee. It would have been cheaper if I sent the 'few boxes' separately. And I was asked if I wanted to purchase 'insurance'.

^^Exactly. I didn't realize they were charging a fuel surcharge, but that's definitely something to make me give other companies a second look the next time I need to ship something. Still, if UPS is cheaper than the competitors, even with the surcharge, then I'd go with them.
