Only thing I find odd is their length of delivery. From GA to Utah 8 days, a long time.

That being said, this one, today, amazed me.

Called Costco on Wed. AM about a computer issue. They got HP involved and they agreed to take it in for repairs. Timeline:

Wednesday 8:30 AM MST agree to fix it, sending box to me

Thursday: Noon MST box arrives, I pack computer and drop off at Fedex/UPS store 2:30 PM MST

Friday @ 9:00 AM MST I get notified they have my computer, in Indiana!

Hurricane, UT to Indiana in amazing time! How'd they do that!

Yep..another golden FedEx transfer to the USPS when I could have had it yesterday. So maybe it is still on the USPS truck??


I have had the same problem. Apparently the USPS has a crappy tracking system. Hand off from UPS and Fed EX adds days to the delivery. It used to be just the smaller items but now it seems more frequent. This has happened most recently with Midway.

Found the package on the front porch this morning which means USPS made a special delivery instead of the regular mail delivery person. How efficient when FedEx could have delivered it yesterday afternoon.

Rumor has it that FedEx and UPS will soon merge.

New company will be called: FED-UP.

At work we had outstanding service from Fed-x. But that was a commercial account and they came twice a day, every day. Way better than anyone else we tried. Virtually never had an issue.
The residential service, Eh, not so much.



Deplorable before deplorable was cool!

Fedex has a huge air hub in Indianapolis. If your package was going elsewhere east of the Mississippi, it would probably have gone through there. I've used HP warranty before & they've always done FEDEX overnight both ways. Less than a week round trip as well.

I suppose it's a matter of money, but SIG is using FedEx to ship. I ordered a couple of spring sets last Friday. The order was completed by Saturday and 'shipped' on Monday. I looked up the tracking through the SIG site and it says it's due for delivery by the 18th next Tuesday. 9 days to deliver? WOW! On the other hand, I ordered 5 mags from Top Gun Supply on Friday and Brad got the order filled and shipped over the weekend and I got them this past Tuesday.

I'll let you know about the item being shipped to me by DHL. Watch this space.
