Now, Uncle Sam takes 25% of your income. State another 10%.

So, when you buy something that is taxed 5%,how much tax did you really pay on that item ? everyone can drink to that !

Noone answer,it is painful, so meant to provoke a painful laugh. Doh.

I try to avoid using fed ex at all costs. They’re a joke from my experiences. I didn’t think ups was that great until my company switched to fed ex.... Took a couple years of shipments ending up on the wrong side of the country and/or late shipments to switch back to ups.

Everyone gets there money back here but the guy who bought the manifold now has to find another.

They all suck! (UPS and Fed-Ex) i can tell you stories about both! Fed-Ex is like clockwork with a shipment we get here every couple months of about 500-1000 units of small electrical motors....Every single shipment we get is damaged! The best ones are when they try and repackage them...i swear they use a bobcat to scoop everything up and dump them into another big box! With broken pallets and all!! LOL i guarantee it costs them more in the reimbursement fees for the damaged motors then what the shipping charge was in the first place!!
And UPS is awesome too...they're not bad with delivery to us but delivering our products in certain areas of the country is another story...we had a distributor in PA that was constantly getting boxes with damaged product. We went back and forth with UPS on it and they ultimately told us that they wont pay for any damages unless we use expanding foam in our boxes. we went and spent $30k on two machines...still getting broken stuff...one of our regional sales guys went to visit the distributor that was having the most issues to see what the boxes looked like when they arrived....as he was walking up to the front door here comes the UPS driver.....slows down just enough to time it right and THROWS two of our boxes out the door of the moving truck onto the front entrance of the building! LOL! The best part of that story is UPS denied that their drivers do that! Until the distributor gave us some security video of it when it happened again the very next day!!! LOL!

Fed ex ground is the worst... As an Ex UPS driver I'll give you this advice on how things work. 99% of damage and lost pkgs comes from poor packaging and overweight shipments. the purpose of the packaging is to protect the contents, recycling is great but bent up and continually reused cardboard loses its strength. dont cheap out on the packaging. secondly if the product falls out of the box, they have no where to go with it unless it is in someones hands as it breaks. always always always attach another label with the shipper and consignee info, that way it can be reboxed and sent or returned to shipper. anything that falls out of a box is called over goods and goes to a trailer and gets sold off like storage wars. i cannot stress the labeling of the contents itself, its a simple and worth every second it takes to do it.

It took fed ex 3 weeks to deliver a package from Jegs because it required a signature, and the “missed delivery” tags showed them at around 1am. Wtf.
