Re: overnight shipping methods
- I've never shipped anything live but we ship sewing machine parts
all the time at work. Both UPS and Fex have their good and bad points. If
you want to beat the hell out of what ever your shipping, send it
UPS... They can't seem to deliver anything with out using it as a football
or running it over, BTW they never admit to being at fault for damage, it
is ALWAYS a packing problem with them.. Fex doesn't go a lot of small
places, pretty much only to large cities.. Their website is a pain in the

Hummmm....maybe FedEx has changed their tracking info on their
website. I did have some Dario dario and some gouramis sent to me last
year via FedEx from two different vendors, and both shipments went
smooth as silk. I could tell via the tracking number exactly where it
was in the system by checking on-line, knew when it arrived in
Seattle, knew when it arrived at my local substation where I'd asked
to have it held and picked it up at opening time! I suppose if I did
this weekly, I'd have some mixups or problems.
I do enough with USPS to know I'd never trust fish in that system. At
least two packages (out of roughly 30-40 per month) go missing monthly
or are delayed. Luckily, these are not live animals/plants, so nothing
DIES due to mishandling.
