I dont ship a lot,but I have never had a problem with usps.Fedex has screwed me over several times.The last thing I ordered was a camshaft from 505 perf in new mexico.The cam was shipped to lunati in tennesee to be nitrated.I was suposed to have it in my hands in 10 days max.Lunatti put the wrong address on the package,fedex couldnt deliver it so the douchbags signed for it and left it in a terminal in walker for three weeks.
After hours on the phone it was located at their hub.When it was located it could not be shipped to the correct address because the asshole signed for it at fedex.I had to have my cousin (because he is the owner of the shop it was shipped to) drive a hour out of his way to pick it up.
I will use anyone but fedex.I said that last time when I watched the asshole through my $500 smartphone at my front door from my driveway.When I walked out of my garage to ask if I could throw his cell phone thirty feet he had nothing to say.I complained,hope the dumb sob lost his job.

Never again.

I won't buy anything if shipping is through USPS. Unorganized, don't give a shit about serving their customers, and the attitude when they have to bring something to the door sends me through the roof!

I've never once had the USPS website report any tracking information of value where both FedEx and UPS at least have a clue where my stuff is while in transit.

FYI, you're supposed to put a single space after a period or comma.

This has been your remedial lesson in basic English for the day, provided by schweeb.

There are more errors, but, for fukc 's sake, proper spacing after punctuation is about as basic as it gets and goes a long way towards creating a readable post.

Sounds about right. I got my package in that time frame and not damaged. I've never had a problem shipping anything.

Fedex for home delivery blows. For business it's better.
