    Over the years this question has come up for me many times. Either UPS is convenient, fedex reliable, or dhl cheapest. What parcel delivery company do you prefer?

    I prefer Fedex because they don't seem to destroy my shipments as often as UPS.

    UPS. No matter what I order it gets delivered to me on my neighbors lunch break, which happens to be noon. That and the fact that everything delivered seems to be in one piece.

    Canada Post and/or Purolator (latter is 80% owned by Canada Post). Canada Post is the Canadian crown corporation that delivers mail in Canada under the Canada Post Corporation Act.

    I find them to offer the cheapest mailing services so I tend to use them. If I need mail to go a bit faster or requires more tracking, then I'd mail them through Purolator. My parents usually use Fedex if they're mailing stuff from and to Hong Kong though. I use UPS only when companies use them for warranty returns.

    UPS, It gets to my house, which is hard to find. And they have good prices.

    I dislike Fedex simply due to the prices. UPS is just cheaper.

    I also dislike DHL because if they can't find your house, they just leave it on a random door step. Had multiple peoples packages on my door step, even when they lived miles away, and i've had them lose my packages before.

    US postal/government postal services are fine, except the elderly lady that delivers my mail, leaves it on my step and doesn't knock on my door.

    For incoming I prefer UPS, if I ship outgoing I prefer USPS for priority mail prices and boxes.

    To be honest I've found them all to be generally the same (in my area at least). Though for outgoing packages I use Canada Post and they are honestly pretty good at what they do and it's easiest for me to get to.

    USPS, delivers quick and there usually the cheapest. I also haven't gotten anything beaten up by them. :)

    FedEx is my second choice, there fast and don't mangle my packages. There only second because of the cost.

    I avoid UPS, but i use them when USPS isn't an option, i can afford to wait and it's not a big ticket item. They've dented pc cases, crushed there box and the case box, all the way though. :(

    UPS, then FEDEX.

    DHL breaks everything and charge too much.

    I've only used UPS and they have been really good to me(so far) on not delivering damage boxes to my house. I cannot comment on FedEx since I have no experience with them. As for DHL I can say that I will never use them since I saw first hand what they do. Throwing boxes around, breaking stuff, and no security.

    so yesterday 10:30am in the morning I ordered a TV on amazon, sold by amazon on next day shipping for the 14th because I will be home only on that day.

    got email at 8pm saying it was shipped. checked tracking and only says Shipment information sent to FedEx

    now it 1:15am 14th and still says same thing. the est delivery date still says 14th by 3:00pm


    Has anyone had there tracking saying that but still got there package the on the correct day?

    Maybe Tracking being slow
