UPS...

So my trailer broke earlier this week. Ordered all the parts, and found out I order the wrong junk. I really wanted the trailer fixed and out of the garage and since I ordered the wrong stuff I was pretty certain I wouldnt get my new parts by the weekend.

Even though its early in the morning Friday UPS made my day. Checked the shipping on two different items one from etrailer.com and one from summit, both have been rescheduled for delivery today. woot.

anyway thats my excitement for this morning.

Ive always had good luck with Fedex, I think it depends where your location is to there main hubs. Fedex is always faster for me, my last package from china in 3 days with just the lowest shipping option. UPS is always 4-5 days no matter what and shows up at my house about 7pm and Fedex is before lunch. But I always have it shipped to the store which business deliveries are before lunch...

UPS is probably one of the best for small shipments.

I also love how FedUp requires a 3 hour window for a same-day pickup.

I guess the driver just HAD to know what was in that box. I love UPS. I don't even remember the last time I had something shipped FedEx. Speaking of UPS I should be getting a delivery from them sometime soon.

You guys make me laugh, the ups guy rolls up to the store this morning, he open the back door 3 packages fall out, he kicks then 3 aside gets our boxes out and throws the ones off the ground back in. There all bad, theres no winner in my book.

I have had some terrible luck. When Zach sent my sliders to me, the packing was beat to hell and back and all the small parts and box were missing. UPS also destroyed a set of seats I bought off ebay. I have had better luck with FedEx lately. I get more stuff in damaged boxes from UPS than FedEx at work(usually between 5-20 a day).
