is this because of the expense of the assumed liability or something else because I'm pretty sure that they make money on everything they ship regardless of one large account or one persons package. I know that every package I drop off I get a really nice thank you and a smile to boot!I agree, but how do you force a private company to do something they don't want to?
I shipped my glass yesterday. Next year I think I'll just make a road trip and deliver it myself. Though delivering round two in person may not be practical, probably not needed either though... ;-)
Demonstrate that they're losing money.
The AHA tried to convince several shipping companies of that. They all said that there wasn't enough money in it to make it worth their while. That may seem absurd to us, but they have a different idea of "worth it".
I'm wondering the same thing. It would be interesting to know what it is specifically that makes the delivery of homebrew not "worth their while". If that's the case why do any individual shipments? Seems to me that liability could reasonably be placed on the sender if the concern is underage receipt. What about an exemption for non-commercial shipment? Sorry, just thinking out the keyboard while sampling BDSA. Probably not the best path to a good solution.
