I'd prefer if they would just use USPS instead-would only take 3 days at most for me--KC, MO to Nashville, TN.

Fucking smartpost bullshit!

If I wanted the post office to fuck up my shit, I wouldn't have selected FedEx/UPS.

I hate USPS and any service that uses USPS. Out of the thousands of packages I have received from UPS, FedEx, and USPS, USPS fucks up 10x more than the others.

It's horrible.

UPS alone is fine. USPS alone is, actually, usually fine. The abominable hybrid of UPS/USPS should be used only if you specifically want to triple the time it takes for a package to arrive.

I always ask LaRue to ship priority or UPS as I can't wait weeks for my swag

Had two packages come from Cabela's at the same time. One went UPS to USPS and took two extra days.

Its like that for the same reason you can't fly between some cities without a stop in between.

Fuck surepost, smartpost and mail innovations. Sometimes ontrac too.

I just got a package in three days from Midway via spartpost
Link Posted: 6/2/2014 1:38:05 PM EST
Yes, that and FedEx's version. Real PITA if USPS doesn't deliver to your physical address, so it ends up getting returned.
Link Posted: 6/2/2014 1:44:02 PM EST
Going through then same shit with an order now.

Anything the USPS touches turns into shit.
Link Posted: 6/2/2014 3:51:25 PM EST
I hate all of the mixed shipping services equally.
Link Posted: 6/2/2014 3:53:15 PM EST
Nope. works good. still costs too much from midway though despite always being on time.

Ontrac sucks. The only time I have had a package go missing from Amazon was when it was an Ontrac delivery. UPS, DHL, USPS Priority, and Fedex have always worked for me.

The last couple UPS items I got were delivered by a subcontractor for the final leg.

Both were left out on rainy days with no plastic wrapping the box. One box was so soft I could tear the wet cardboard between two fingers.

I ordered a few CDs a couple weeks ago. 1296 miles and 10 days later (literally passing my house TWICE) they arrived.

Versus 490 miles and two days. Taking the scenic route obviously saves them money somehow.
