Sounds like something UPS could fix pretty easily.

IF a redirect request is received THEN UPS could ask for approval from shipper.

IF shipper says NO -OR- shipper has a standing order to NOT redirect shipments
THEN no redirect allowed and maybe some of this could be avoided.

I still am a member.
 - discounts on hotel rooms, typically about $8 a night.  Also discounts on rental cars.
 - towing / roadside assistance.  I've used it for dead battery, flat tire, as well as being locked out of my car.  Auto companies may offer this with a new car but after 3-4 years, not likely.  My car is 8 years old, my wife's was 10 till we just traded it.
 - in Chicago if you are pulled over, your license could be taken for even a minor traffic violation unless you have a bail bond card.  AAA offers that as a member so the card lets you keep your license till you pay your fine or attend your court date.

Of the three, I use the first regularly.  The other two are more peace of mind but I have used them.

USAA has roadside assistance for their members, so I have never had AAA. I bet other insurance companies do too but I wouldn't know as all my 45 years of driving have been with USAA, never used it but glad it is there for the kids and wife. I've only had one flat in the past 12 years so lucky there and I change it myself. I pay for the rental car option which is $10/year IIRC. If you were in the service and are not a USAA member, you might want to check it out.

Ford has roadside assistance as part of their 36m/36k bumper-to-bumper coverage, never needed it fortunately.

GM and all the others have it too no doubt. Wife had it for her BMW, but with runflat tires she wasn't worried about a flat too much. You can drive 50 miles at 50 MPH on those Goodyear runflats. They covered everything, even regular maintenance was included.

One of the best deals out there, IMO.  A tow from the race track, lock your keys in the car, flat tire, etc.  All covered.  Can't beat it.

Sales & Dealer Area / Another warning for dealers - credit card scam
« Last post by Bob Marino on Yesterday at 10:59 AM »

 Some years ago, I mentioned this in the Dealer's section here and unfortunately it's time to mention this again. To all dealers using UPS, there is a fraud situation that I will bring to your attention, since this has happened 2 times with the same tool - the Domino 500 set, in the same week. I was notified by the customers inquiring "I just received this package with your (my name) on it that I did not order and my card was charged fraudulently." I'm luck for their honesty!

 Here's the fraud. Thief steals a customer's credit card and places the order on the web, using the victim's correct address for billing and shipping, BUT uses an email address and phone number that goes directly back to the "thief." So, they wait until shipping is confirmed via email and using the "My Ups" option, ask UPS to reroute the tool to their own address.
 
 Just a heads up and something to be aware of. Remedy as you see fit.

I believe he may be getting overwhelmed by now. I would be interested also.
