I never had a problem with Fedex or UPS, they always deliver fast and with no issues, well except when the shipper requires signature but even than they attempt delivery and if you not there they will leave you notice you sign and they leave it at the door next day. No problem for me. I am big fun of both of the companies.
I got the board from Evo but yeah i hear you, they are redirecting it to my local FedEx place so i can pick it up. This is my first time dealing with FedEx, i have never had a problem with UPS or USPS.
