Yes, they always ask and when you pay for the service (shipping cost) you agree to their terms (fine print) either on-line or by signing the paper (contract) at the counter. It is the same with USPS and FedEx.ejonesss wrote:wouldnt ups ask what is in the package if they got a package so heavy? for it's size.
