I have some gear that I need to ship, I've not heard good about either company recently.  Which of the two is more reliable?

Both competitors have their own hardship to go through…
I think both will be reliable.

Anything FedEx delivers to me, gets dropped on the ground under my mailbox at the street 600' from my house, and usually in the rain. UPS brings my packages to my house and puts them on my covered porch. Now, which do you think I give all of my business to?

:agree:   That said, UPS has been late with nearly every delivery to me.

They both suck.  Sorry, but not good experience from either, at least from last couple years.  Flip a coin and pray.
