I still use USPS. Haven't had a problem yet. However I only use their Express Mail Service.

shocking, I thought for the amount they charge, Fedex would never get it wrong. Sorry hope you sort it out.

Before you freak out, Illinois DOES share a large border with Missouri. Have you looked on a map to see where the town is that you shipped it to? It's very possible that it's a border town and FedEx has the address in one state and USPS in the other...

Exactly what I was thinking too, which is why I asked what the city was in an earlier post. It's a possibility. There are even airports with the name of a city in another state while being physically located outside the state line (MO & IL have some airports in the eastern part like this).

I've had nothing but bad luck with FedEx, something happened every single time I used them. I use USPS exclusively now and have never had a problem, even overseas.

wait, if usps "tracking" says "arrival at unit" that doesn't mean arrival at the buyer's home. it means the package has just been scanned at the local usps' office which in southern and western il could be missouri.

usps is more reliable and economical than fed ex or ups. i regularly use usps and always purchase insurance and delivery confirmation.
