    Default Damaged parcel: Can I do anything?

    I sent many boxes home via Seamail, and other than being a bit squished and obviously jostled around, the majority of the boxes arrived in tact.

    Then I got one that was taped all along one side and wrapped in plastic bands. I opened it up and half the stuff in there wasn't mine: mostly candies and other gifts I believe are from India. I can't say what's missing until I get my last box (IF I get that last box) but I believe it's several Japanese dictionaries, which weren't cheap.

    So . . . anything I can do? I know I won't get money or my things back, but is there any way to report it damaged and that I have a bunch of stuff that's not mine? Or is it a case of "Zannen"?

    Or maybe if I just hear other damaged parcel stories, I won't feel so bad.

    there will be insurance on the boxes and if you labeled your contents correctly and put monetary amounts on there you shold be able to claim (at least a portion) or lost or damaged goods. you will need to contact the japan post with your receipt and tracking numbers.

    I only sent 4 boxes and thankfully they all arrived in tact, but i sent them all at the same time, and three of them made it in 3 weeks, one just arrived 3 days ago, kinda strange.

    Oh, I didn't think I would be able to make a claim since I didn't insure them. But this page does have compensation prices for parcels.

    I have the shipping forms and the receipts, but how would I get the ball rolling on making a claim?
