Who offers the most flexible and useable options, prices, and which company would you over-all choose to ship or be shipped to??

None are really ideal.

USPS is best for small things and for international shipping.

Fed Ex is cheapest and generally very quick. The most they will deliver to a residence is 100lbs.

UPS is most reliable I think but I could be wrong. Max is 150lbs so they will ship a 5spd tranny.

I sell allot of parts and I just started to use fedex, and I like their hours. They open 24 hrs and shipping cheaper by $3.$$ and some dollars and also quicker then UPS, it's like ops with ups...

I've found the USPS priority is very good and a decent price

I've been impressed with DHL's service. I've saved a bit of money on larger, heavier items. Shipped a dashboard from an SC for like $75 - halfway across the country.

If you have anything that is large (trunk lid, hood, etc) that is not that heavy (i.e. engine...) I use Greyhound. They are cheap and good. Only bad thing is that you have to go to the bus depot to pick it up.

UPS but only because they come to the shop everyday and since the Company I work for does a billion in sales a year I get a big cut in price

I like Fed EX with DHL second & UPS as a third. USPS is the worst where I live, I will not buy anything if it’s only shipped USPS. They refuse to use my delivery box and you have to go to the local PO which you need cover fire to make it inside and out, also takes about 30 mins due to the service level.

I wouldn't ship anything through Fed-ex, unless you know it has no chance of breaking and that it can take alot of punishment!!! I used to work there!!!

I agree with Daves opinion and the fact that USPS Priority is a pretty good deal and cheap.
