Superb List

I would recommend UPS (They guarantee the delivery date and are a little cheaper)

I would stay away from DHL for Time Sensative items as they take 2 days to clear their items thru customs (UPS/FEDEX takes 2 hours)

Hi!

I normally use FedEx to ship, just wondering if I register to have a company account with them, does the price change alot?

Thanks

I have company account with fedex. The advantage of having an account with courier service is that :

1) no need to pay immediately for the shipment (pay end of the month when the invoice sent to you by fedex, dhl or etc etc)

2) if buyer - you can do "Import shipment" which wil be charge into your account.

3) There will be discount based on your account activity (how frequent your shipment is)
