Shipping companies suck!

Ive been trying to sell a few items latley and then ship them. The small stuff has been no problem, but the big stuff has been a royal pain. I ve shipped two axle housings so far and they told me that it would be 26.00 per housing but next time box it. So I went back three weeks later and the same ladie looked me sraight in the face and said it was going to be 42.00 to ship the same item in a box. I was so pissed. She would not give it to me for the origanl price.
. On top of that yesterday after dropping an engine off to have it freighted they called while it was half way their and said it was going to be an extra 79.00. Luckily I argued my way out of it. Oh and Don you were right
. I guess I just needed to vent. I think shipping companies might be worse than Bill Gates.

I have found UPS to be as big a pain as USPS... but now FEDEX GROUND service... usually about 20-30% cheaper than Parcel Post... and much easier to get along with.. and ya can send stuff like tires ...naked.. no tire... don't even try it.. I mean you don't need a crate or box or anything.. give the site a try..
