    USPS, FedEX, UPS, DHL???

    After searching the forums I can't find a clear winner and method for getting
    precious cargo from point A to point B safely. Does anybody have some (more) experiences and advice to share?

    i've never had a problem with UPS or FedEx. my sister owns a couple businesses and seems to like DHL. i think they're all really good at what they do. if they weren't then there probably wouldn't me so many options. i've also never had a problem shipping USPS. they've all worked out pretty well.

    I am going to say DHL because they are the underdog of the 3 majors... I don't see them flagging packages becase they need all the packages they can get... Just some stupid logic I would follow as anyone is a crap shoot...

    As for reliability,,, No one but,the USPS has lost a package of mine...

    DHL are German. My cousin works for them in England, same with my uncle.

    My cousin, Geoff, and me were in his DHL van outside The Old Bailey [Very big court in England] and we just lit a spliff and a copper pulls us over and takes it away, and says dont get caught again, and lets us go..

    Didnt search our shit so we still had over a 1/4 left

    Thanks for the input. I think I'm gonna try USPS Priority Mail and hope that they don't screen it. Fake return address just in case, of course...

    Well if it means anything to you UPS and FEDex are Unions correct? Meaning they can open any package as they will to check for anything suspicious. Now USPS I heard is required a warrent to search an item. Hope that helps you come to an conclusion.

    LOL...a 'union' has nothing to do with it. I think you mean because they're private companies (as opposed to the government operated USPS) that they can open packages at will.

    Depending on what you're shipping/quantity USPS is a good value with it's flat rate priority shipping. Package it well enough and it is virtually failsafe.

    If you were shipping quite a bit of precious cargo and were to use UPS just be sure to ship ground. Depending on your shipping location and destination the package will pass through 8-12 hands a split second at a time and there are no dogs on the ground. Put it in a decent sized clean-cut looking box and there is very little chance of it being inspected, damaged or lost.
