I ordered a brandti from ron at
http://www.fishpost.com i had him Fedex them to my house b/c the
nearest airport is two hours away from me. Well as luck would have
it my brandti arrived doa fed ex wined,bitched,complained, and blamed
the death on everything but them selves. So i shipped ron some
more money to ship it again only this time i got off my ass and
drove 2 hours to the airport the plane left baltimore at 12:25
and should have arrived at KCI at 220 but again as luck would
have it the plane b/c of weather was two hours late and b/c of
road conditions it took me 4 hours to drive back home. it was
snowing so hard I couldnt see 5 foot in front of my truck. So
after what seemed like for ever i final made it back home and
b/c of rons pro shipping abilitys my brandti was alive and to
my surprise he threw in a gold spilo for me "What a Guy"
and i must add that he is meaner than hell.

I think you taking a chance with any carrier. I had a bad experience with airborne. When I tracked the package (8" yellow Natt) it said they dropped of off at my door. I am home and I got nothing. Through numerous calls, trying to figure out where they left my fish, I even drove all over my neighborhood looking for him, the dude comes strutting up with my fish like nothing happened. The corner of the package was somewhat bashed in so the styrofoam was cracked, letting out a lot of the heat. It was a 3 hours that I had no idea what was going on. Also, Airborne uses contracted delivery people so they had a very tough time contacting the driver.
The good news, they forgot to charge me!!!!

I just think it is all a crapshoot. I will continue to order online, but I will also expect to have problems every once in a while with shipping companies.
well i know the fedex around my area is great. but maybe else where not so good. sorry to hear.

Im glad I live near fishpost so I dont have to worry about these shipping issues, when I need high quality fish and trustworthy service I just take a little drive up to Baltimore!
in the summer i move to PA for 2 months, maybe ill bring some back
