FedEx sucks. UPS Sucks. USPS sucks. DHL sucks. Speedee sucks.
Lets start a shipping company that has Stephen Hawking in charge of logistics.

I've always had issues with FedEx delivering packages to the wrong addresses. The ones that require signatures get signed by the drivers and dropped off and are a bitch to track down. You call the number and they send a message to the driver who has no idea what they did with the package. I've even had them sign for a package but leave it in the truck, only to be found the next morning when loading up.
Seems like USPS would be your best bet for being delivered to the right house. They do deal with your mail everyday and a package addressed to someone else on their route but with your name should raise a flag.

It all comes down to the mfg, or place that packages your order. We must keep a 97% quality here for packages and no damages. it makes the shipping easier

I shipped $1000 of ball joints USPS to Australia once and mistyped the house number on the address. The customer noticed it on the confirmation but it was too late to change it. I sweated bullets for a week but evidently the mail men there are smart and delivered it to the right house.

|The Korean||I'll more than likely never use USPS again for packages. They lost one of my high priority 3 day delivery packages to my parents... ending up getting to them 5 weeks later. Then they lost a package of rare Subaru parts I sent to a buddy back home. On that one though, I sent it to the wrong address (partly my fault) and it was on it's way back to me. uh ya they still have no idea where it is and I already threw away the insurance card...|

|jefferyfghezzi||I owned and ran a business from 1986 until 2009 and have had no real problems with inbound or outbound with UPS OR FED X . The biggest thing is how it is packaged.If the product is much smaller then the box and it is heavy it has the potential of being a disaster.|

I ordered some rock sliders at the same time and they showed up looking like they had been dragged through a firefight. And they only had to get from PA to Maryland. The product itself was fine, but the box...
C'mon, UPS, you can do better than that with heavy shipments...

FEDEX employees are non-union and are therefore held accountable for their actions.
UPS employees are Teamsters and therefore are not held accountable for their action, much less their lack thereof.
all jokes aside, for UPS returns you are usually required to take it to a UPS location, especially if it's heavy. I even offered to put my damaged rocker armor (also smittybuilt, also busted thru the box and chipped the corner) on the truck for the UPS driver, she refused.
I've had to deal with this numerous times, it sucks but is what it is.

Most of the time; FEDEX can't even find my Zip Code

We switched from ups to fedex at work. We were getting so many complaints about damaged packages and late deliveries.
However, I ordered 3 parts from 1 place Monday. Ironically each part is being/been shipped differently; ups, usps and fedex. Received ups today and installed, fedex supposedly delivered today but receiving must've left it on the dock, and usps expected Friday shipped yesterday.
Alec at EAD Offroad has been awesome.

|2012-Rubicon||All shippers seem to be hit or miss. But fed ex did destroy my $6000 mountain bike then denied my claim said it was improperly packaged........no packaging would have stopped what appears to be a fork truck fork though the box......just sayin.|

|jsmithtx||Ordered my lift kit from Washington. Shipped UPS. Tracking was accurate. Shipped Thursday arrived in Texas Tuesday as scheduled. No problem.|

Don't get me wrong though, I have had problems with Fedex before, but they actually did something and tried to help and actually did resolve the situation somewhat. The UPS agents I talked to just said there was nothing they could do and it would arrive when it arrived.
My brother works for Fedex and says they can flag any package and have it pulled and re-routed or sped up at the next location it is scanned it at very easily. This act alone where UPS didn't do a damn thing to help make up their mistake is what pisses me off because I've already patiently waited 2 FULL WEEKS for them to send this bumper around the world and then i receive it and it's damaged so I now have to wait another week basically.
