      Have you tried online shipping rates calculators?

      Here is a good one: ShipGooder: Courier Rate Search, Shipping Rate Search for FedEx, UPS, DHL and the United States Postal Service

      and a full directory of US couriers at: ShipGooder: Couriers, Messengers & Delivery Services Directory

      I tried a lot of different sizes and distances, and it seems like USPS is the best choice for everything....They have the best prices on everything 70 lbs or under. They don't ship over 70 lbs.

      Right now for personal items I am stuck between UPS, FedEx, USPS but I do hate ordering online and not being given a choice (even if that means paying extra) to use another service. For me in order of good to bad its FedEx (I have an awesome driver and I would not trade him for anything), then UPS (semi tolderable) and then UPSP (which is horrible).

      You can order in a post office with USPS....You're not forced to pay extra...but you get a discount for ordering online. And yeah, it seems like people get attached to their drivers. My dad used to use FedEx but he got FED up with them haha "fed" He uses UPS now. But he knows the driver and all that stuff.

      Courier drivers have to go through a very stringent training process. They have initial trainings when all their pick and drop movements are timed, to the extent that they are encouraged to hold the vehicle's keys using the same hand at all times, open the van's door always using the same hand, maintain the same number of steps while offloading parcels, and so forth, to optimise their loading and unloading times. No wonder we start having favorites. Anyone here spotting a trend for household robots!?

      UPS, FedEx, USPS are the most popular in my area but it seems that either for the route I am on or just my luck the best service I get is Fedex. The drivers are always nice compared to the other two which both companies tend to employ those who are kind of "stuck up".

      If your product is from 3Oz to 13 Oz, you can use USPS first class mail.
      If your product is from 1lbs to 3 lbs within the USA, you can use USPS priority mail.
      If your product is 3 lbs or more, go get a FedEx or UPS account.
      Usually from LA to NY, for 5lbs, only cost you need to pay is about $8, if you have a FedEx or UPS account.

      USPS is always best for both domestic and international.
