    Hi everyone,

    Got a question. Who's less expensive to ship pedals with? USPS or UPS?

    Thanks.

    +1 USPS. UPS charges more for residential addresses so doesn't really compare. I've used USPS to all over the US, and to Canada, Australia, Singapore, etc. and never had a single problem.

    USPS. Second cheapest is Fed Ex Ground. UPS most expensive.

    USPS, unless you have a UPS account and ship with daily rates. But even then, you'd have to ship UPS to a business address. Residential is always more.

    I prefer USPS. Honestly, I just don't trust UPS anymore. I've heard too many UPS horror stories. Price doesn't even enter into it for me. And USPS is pretty quick and dependable most of the time.

    USPS has never lost a package on me, and I've shipped a ton of pedals. I don't think you can beat em for 2-3 shipping.

    USPS Priority Mail has the best shipping rates and I've never had a problem with them plus if you go on line you can order USPS Priority shipping box's and labels for free.
