UPS, FedEx, or USPS

Stephen (wrk4ups) just gave me a good idea. He wanted drama, so this might give him some.


Vote for who you'd rather ship with, and what you hate about the other guys, as well as who you voted for.



I'll start.
I'd go with UPS. Their trucks are noisy, so you always know when you're stuff is near your house, and the local UPS guy is my bitch after he decided to open a package and use it some before delivering it (paintball gun). He greats me as sir every time he delivers a package since that day.

USPS just sucks, like all other federal organizations.

FedEx...what a joke. They had a driver who said he couldn't find my house and that the address is non-exhistant. I even saw him driving through my neighborhood the 3 days he claimed he couldn't find it. They had to tape a map quest print-out onto the box. First and last time I ever used them.

UPS.

fedex will leave your **** at the door. (yes even downtown baltimore, wtf??) without authorization release checked on the form!

USPS would be ok but slow and cant track to save their lives.

UPS for bulky items

Like getting things through UPS or FedEx due to the pretty up to date tracking. When it comes to shipping things I prefer USPS always seems cheaper.

I use Fedex majority of the time. For some reason they are almost half what UPS and USPS charge and I have never had any screwups.

i ship 3-4 packages a week, and no one can compete with USPS and their flate rate box ...cheaper and faster. throw a .65 cent conf. # on there and havent seen one package lost out of the 100+ ive sent !!!!! +100000 for USPS

Never argue with stupid people. They will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience
Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

USPS. Their tracking sucks but their delivery is fast. Second choice is Fedex then UPS. But you want to talk about crappy delivery courier then DHL has my vote. Never again will I buy from a vendor that ships via DHL. Don't care if that vendor is selling me a item $20 cheaper than the next. Out of 5 items that was shipped to me via DHL 4 got screwed up.

I voted UPS. Never had any problems so far. I do not like USPS. Seem slow to me and the tracking system is not even a tracking system. I love hearing the UPS truck when I know I'm expecting a package. Demented is right, they are loud lol.

DHL should be added to the list of options.

For a non-business, FedEx Ground is the least costly for anything over 2lbs. They're the easiest to track and they treat my packages with the least abuse. They also let me pick up my packages on the same day if I need to sign for them.

The USPS is #2 in my book and the best for overseas shipping. Their service is faster than FedEx Ground but you don't get tracking (or you get useless tracking) and their prices have become absurd in the past 10 years.

I haven't bothered with UPS in years. Their prices can't compete, they're slow, I can't pick up my packages on the same day that they try to deliver them, and I prefer my stuff to arrive intact.
