    UPS isn't part of my vocabulary anymore, that about sums it up for me.

    I would recommend UPS over usps and fed ex ground any day . I have had problems with all carriers, but usps and Fed Ex ground are more prone to miss delivery times in our experience.

    ups. price is pretty close to the same. usps is slower than trying to drop turd after eating a block of cheese. and tracking number is worthless
     
  7. ;D Now that's funny....UPS is increasing prices 4-5% for the new year, USPS is too slow and I agree the tracking number only tells you when it left and when you get it....I prefer FedEx because they have an early delivery to my location (9am) and they deliver on Saturdays to my location at no extra charge.

    usps is fine if you aren't in any hurry, but you get what you pay for in shipping just like anything else.

    Sorry guys, I get shipments every day to my studio. USPS is as fast or dang close and usually half the price. UPS is a freaking joke anymore.

    The speed of USPS seems to depend on where it's coming from or going to. Normally I get stuff just as fast with USPS as I do with any other shipper. My wife ships a lot with her internet site.....nearly 100% USPS and never a problem. UPS that's a different story.........

    It must be in the location. My Usps is a joke. Since my local hub closed , our mail travel's 120 mile's to get sorted and is handled by 8 people to get 10 mile's down the road, Ups leave's them standing in the dust.

    I think your exactly right Andy. It's a people and location thing.

    It must be, my post office goes above and beyond to get things to me and even calls me when shipment has come in. They are a small office in a small town, but great people to work with. I think that really makes a difference.

    I ship nearly daily using USPS. No matter where it goes, it usually gets there in 2 days using their boxes. No complaints there. UPS seems to run over my packages with the big brown truck. FedEx takes longer but at least they take care of it while they have it. If it doesn't fit in a USPS box, I ship FedEx.
     
  19. If they would hire people that have an IQ above 20 here woukd help , But like you said what ever works for you is your best thing.
     
  20. I always use Fed Ex the chick that delivers is SMOKIN!
