    I'm not sure if this question has ever been asked. I am wondering if you guys will ever offer ups or fedex services. Just curious cuz I am a bit of a ups fan. usps not so much anything that is government run is doomed to not work correctly.

    A ups fan? really? thats kinda scary...
    I've worked for both in my past and I'd trust the USPS way more as far as my packages arriving in one piece, or at least intended working order.. Package treatment in a UPS hub can be a scary scary thing (man the things I've seen...just wow)

    I'm with ya, Cory. It would be great to be able to select shipping options. USPS Priority is frequently a good choice, and UPS or FedEx overnight or second-day for those emergencies we sometimes encounter would be good too. Let's continue to lobby V4L for more shipping variety!

    Actually all of them suck. Just some suck less then others depending where your at. Ive had problems with ups, fedex and usps.. the only company i never had issues with was dhl, and no they no longer do local just international. Now days I just order and pray.

    I gotta rise to the defense of USPS. It's probably the best postal system in the world, as well as the cheapest. Probably the only example I can think of of a well run government system, and light years better than a wholly private postal system would be for the average citizen. Free enterprise is superior for many many things, but let's not throw out the baby with the bathwater.

    I didnt mean to say usps wasnt better then the others overall. I just meant that they all have some problems. The machinery I work on and program, deals directly with the post office on a large scale. That isnt saying that there perfect. Bottom line is, your only as good as the people who work for you (what Ive seen so far you all are top notch). Some areas some shipping companies are better then others.

    WhereIi grew up.. usps was the best, then where I lived last ups was the best. Where im at now, Fedex takes the cake but ive even had problems with them. I just wish USPS had a better tracking system while parcels where in transit.

    I believe you can put a hold on your mail if you leaving for vacation or a short period of time. In that case they hold all your mail at the post office for you to pickup when you get back.

    yep, here it is:

    I was gonna say you had a good cause for a CHL. I should'a known you were smart enough to figure that out on your own. ;)

    Call the post office, ask of the whereabouts of your package, there's a decent chance it's at the local post office.
    I had a chat with the local post office yesterday, and on one occasion a month or 2 back, and both times they were actually really damn helpful, not at all what I expected from government workers. The first time I went into the post office and picked my package up myself (they'd attempted to deliver it to my work office on a saturday)

    See I like UPS too, but I don't know if this applies to where you live but at least with USPS you kind of have a time frame of when the package will come. Ups can come any time throughout the day and even late into the evening. USPS usually delivers at the latest the afternoon. I kinda like having that security knowing around what time it will come ya know? But thats me!

    I hear ya kimmy. I just like the tracking they have. And I build computers and sell them I use them for that and never had a problem. And computer equipment is kinda fragile they have never broke anything.

    I do A LOT of shipping and receiving. While the USPS service is fine (for the cost) their "tracking" is just awful (in most cases absolutely useless).

    It might cost $1-2 more to ship UPS but the tracking ability is worth the cost in many cases.
