    Just did a trade where the box I'm receiving broke on the truck right before it was to be delivered. Luckily they are sending the box back to the shipper and he can resend it. My question is should I have the guy I'm trading with send it to a different address? The only reason I ask us that the same fedex guy that discovered the leak might be the same guy delivering the new box and if he remembered my address he may flag the box for inspection.

    The driver doesn't give a shit as long as the box isn't broken again. You'll be fine.

    You're fine OP, the drivers won't flag it. They'll just deliver it and be done with it.

    That said, if you want, feel free to send it to my address. I'm 7 hours away but it won't get flagged.

    It'll be fine, just have your trade partner resend.
