I hope that you purchased insurance for $3800.00 from UPS. If so, you are off the hook. UPS will reimburse you. Otherwise, the most they are liable for is $100.00. I'm pretty sure this is in the fine print on the reverse of the tracking label you filled out when shipping. Shipping to a confirmed address is also important. But insurance is true peace of mind. I recall, back in the days of film, I shipped a job worth about 7500 to the lab. I insured it, and it took 2 weeks to get there. I was told that it passed, hand-to-hand, from 1 UPS boss to another, all along the route and each one had to sign for it. I was told this after I called the lab wondering where my pictures were, and they hadn't even received the film yet. Then I called UPS, scared out of my wits (there was no possibility of a re-shoot) and they told me the story. I could see that they would take no chances with valuable, insured items. By the way, you may get some relief from either your homeowners' or camera equipment policies. If the insurance was still in force on either policy, the loss is their problem, minus your deductible. Best of luck to you!!
