I only use USPS.
UPS and FedEx both suck.

Same, I just got some gear via USPS. Give it two weeks though, it can be slow sometimes, but for me that is also because of the old Darwin Downtime, or the NT Not Today, Not Tomorrow. Melbourne should be a few days faster.

:plus1: USPS tends to be cheapest, and sometimes even the most reliable method.

Just so you guys know. UPS transports everything that is shipped by airplane for USPS in USA. Not sure how it works overseas. Ever wondered why you see UPS trucks at the post office. They are there picking up priority mail and express mail items. Then UPS transports them to destination city and takes them back to the post office so they can deliver them to you.

Any international shipment,use USPS for simple customs forms, declared value, and lowest cost. International for the other guys is just too expensive.

Anything domestic is Fedex, period. Claims are paid the fastest and easiest with them, compared to the others.

It is too much difficult to search out cheap transport companies if they will give cheap rates it will not provide well quality of service, and not care about your vehicle's reliable transport service platform charges highly and deliver on time now it depends on you. You save money or you care about the vehicle

Very true Emily, but your response is to a six-year-old question. A benefit of forums is that members can research this sort of information between themselves and thereby get first-hand information of experiences rather than 'fly blind' by engaging a company straight from Google or the phone book.

Anyway, welcome to the forum. Do you have a Honda or are you just passing through on a mission?:devil
