UPS Guarantee Service Refund Policy

Every UPS parcel shipment comes with a money-back guarantee if the attempted delivery of shipment was not with the specified times. The UPS late delivery refund policy is known as the Guaranteed Service Refund (GSR) and can be summarized with the following: assuming there are no exceptions (weather delays, address correction, etc.) every package is guaranteed to arrive on time or you as the shipper are owed a refund even if that package is 61-seconds late. However, you only have 15 days to claim a refund for a service delivery failure. If you miss this window to claim your express (air) and ground packages, you lose.
