Lol who goes out of their way to post a picture of a sales rep from a shipping company they use!? (Hint: Someone who just signed up on the site today.)Choice Global. Best rates and service I've dealt with, of 4 different 3rd party shippers. Best website as well.
Here is my rep
What a rude comment. I just joined reef2reef yesterday after the slew of facebook censorship to the reef community. Like I had mentioned, I've used several 3rd parties. shipyouraquatics, shipnex, smartelogix (great rates but horrid service), and most recently Choice Global. I have zero affiliation with them aside from using their service and being VERY happy with it thus far.
Furthermore, this was posted in an area of the forum partially dedicated to shipping discussions. I replied to a thread titled "where to get the cheapest fedex overnight shipping rates"... and I provided my opinion based off a good bit of experience, and provided OP with means to aquire (likely) better rates... and your rhetoric is "so sad. on so many levels"??? Think you need to take a hard look in the mirror pal!
While this has potential for volume users, it does not apply to the average hobbyist looking to find a more affordable means of shipping to fellow hobbyist. Most individuals will not quality for these rates, and that's unfortunate, but it's the business model that these companies embrace.I ask the vendor or individual to use my Fedex # which is tied to me corporate account. I get corporate rates. If you’re a frequent Fedex user it might be worth a phone call to inquire into a commercial account.
In fairness, I exaggerated, I havent had a shipment arrive 5 minutes late. But I have gotten refunds for overnight shipments that take an additional day.Are you exaggerating or do they actually refund if not delivered right on time? How big of a hastle is it to get them to honor refund policies?
ShipYourAquatics - 45%, for $2.50 insurance on each package they will refund it if its 1 minute or greater regardless of reason, no questions asked. Pretty solid option in my opinion. Excellent customer service as well.For those promoting other shipping solutions:
1. What overnight prices are you getting?
2. Does your shipping company offer easy refunds for late deliveries?
