      Fast shipping methods/dependable companies - Any tips?

      Hi, I have read more than enough to sell on my own, but I would like to know what the best shipping companies to do business with are? I’ve handled buying and selling online for some time now, and I have decided to start my own online store specializing in new and used items. Do you guys have any shipping methods or companies you favor? I am browsing through all the comments, tips, etc. that are posted on here to help me out. Thanks for all of your input.

      If youíre shipping from China, EMS is the biggest company over there. The price per kg varies from $15-$20, check anyway. Delivery time ranges from 5 to 7 days.

      Where are you shipping from? What are you shipping? Whatís the size of each shipment? Will it be shipped by air or sea?

      UPS is the way to go if you want things shipped in the US. If itís over 20lb, the price really goes up, and then it gets tricky with shipping methods.

      If you want to ship bigger orders, you may use the assistance of a freight company who can guarantee protection, so you know it will reach you or your buyer in one piece. Good luck with your business. Let us know how it works out for you.

      I think this idea makes much more sense in my current situation. It will cost me more for now, but I will eventually get the hang of things. Thanks for your replies.
