Ludicrous/obsurd prices. Example: $175.00 to box a PC for shipment (excluding shipping costs).
This UPS Store is located in the Boston Copley Marriott. It is a small, cluttered store located off the lobby of the hotel. On the day of my visit I was greeted by a cordial, slow moving gentleman. I carried-in a monitor, CPU, and keyboard to box it for shipping and ship it. I was quoted (and was stupid enough to pay ) $175.00 to box the PC for shipping. I was advised that it was UPS' policy to double-box all PC's for shipment, and that that contributed to the cost. When I questioned the price, I was advised that all UPS Store's in the Boston market change the same prices for boxing articles, that there may be variability in price at UPS Stores that are owned by another franchisee, and that the actual shipping costs are the same at all UPS Stores. In this case, we paid $65.00 for shipping in addition to the $175.00 to prepare the PC (box it) for shipment.
I don't know what if teels like to be violated, but this experience is about as close as I have come to experiencing that horiffic event.
