Next time try to find a store that sells flatscreen tv's. The boxes usually come with styrofoam to sturdy the box. They are great for large flat items! But at least you got it figured it out!

Fedex is garbage because their drivers are outsourced, meaning they don't work for Fedex directly; which makes them care that much less about their job and they dont give a crap where they leave your packages
There was a post not long ago similiar to this one. I responded with the response I'm going to give now. I happen to work for FedEx (the original company founded 33 years ago by Fred Smith). Those drivers do work directly for FedEx and are held to standards, but like any company there are always some who do not care, etc. FedEx Ground, on the other hand, is the old R.P.S. (A.K.A. Roadway Packaging Systems) that was rebranded FedEx Ground. Those drivers give FedEx a bad name. I have actually been not allowed to give them a package. I mean that is their job -- to take and release packages. Anyway, a simple way to tell is FedEx trucks are all automatics are white with Purple/Orange lettering. FedEx Ground/FedEx Home Delivery (Ground Residential) are mainly stick shifts and are lettered with the Blue/Gray lettering. Hope this helps.

Use the $106 to buy a plane ticket on Southwest and deliver it yourself. That sounds like more fun that arguing with UPS
