Default UPS or FedEx?

Which do you think has faster, more reliable shipping? And when you receive something it will more than likely not be broken.

I've had good luck with both but prefer UPS most of the time. Nice thing about FedEx is they deliver on Saturday.

i hear a lot of people talk shit about fedex, but in my case it's always been faster, way cheaper, and everything has always been there in 1 piece.

I don't see a point to UPS. They take 6 days to deliver what Fedex takes 3 days to do. HJ ships Fedex and I always get my package in 3 days, as with HC. UPS with Hookah-Shisha takes 1 week.

I know it's based on how far away you are from Texas, but I'm not too far away I would assume.

Philadelphia isn't too close, though I guess it helps being in a big city.

I order things all the time, and refuse to use fedex. everything i've ever had that was shipped with them looked like it had been to hell and back when i got it. I swear they drop kick their packages onto the trucks or something. UPS or USPS always.

UPS has delivered way too many packages to me that look like they've been used as soccer balls. I even watched as a driver tossed a package to my steps...needless to say, I haven't seen him around anymore after I made a phone call.

FedEx was made by a marine due to a bet. It's a pretty funny story but there's these two guys in the marines and one said I can get a bunch of shipment shipped in a day (i forgot how many days) and then he won the bet so he decided to make it a company. So then the government started up his company therefore federal=Fed

If you can pack it yourself use the postal service, nothing beats the priority mail service guaranteed three days.

I worked for DHL, and i worked for UPS... Let me tell you this from PERSONAL experience... WE STOMP ON PACKAGES WHEN LOADING THE TRUCKS... Not that i wanted too, but that's how i was told from my trainer... kick, push, stomp, throw... just get the package in and as fast as possible. Get it done with, if something breaks let the consumer worry about it... Worry about getting this truck loaded and off the dock.

I like both and have good experience with both but you can't beat USPS. Flat rate priority boxes are the best thing invented and the closest thing to teleportation. If I make small orders from John I sometimes ask if he can do flat rate if it fits, 3 days from Cali to PA versus ~5 with FedEx...can't beat that.

UPS is the worst shipping company ever!! They totally screw me over everytime I order something making me play some retarded endless games of phone tag with their customer service... all because I live in a "high risk area." Which isn't even that high risk... Either way if I say LEAVE MY PACKAGE 8 times... you would think they would just leave it but no.... And they refuse to tell us the exact time they are coming... or call my cell so I can come get the package cause I live in a complex with a slumlord who refused to fix my buzzer... They also asked me to walk 10 miles to the UPS place they sent my undelivered package too when I explained there was a UPS down the street from me... And refused to send it there... And one of the customer service ladies cursed at me before hanging up on me...

FedEx on the other hand was awesome... They just called my cell and I came down got my stuff simple as that... Although the driver did call me an "idiot" for signing to leave a $350 package on my door step unattended... hahha... Either way I vote FedEx...

I call it a tie. Fedex is almost always faster but the stuff comes banged up and the guy always throws it on the porch and runs. At least UPS knocks before they walk away.

UPS leaves all my stuff at my front door. Whether it be a $800 camera lens or a small box of shish.
