What is the cheapest way to ship your package you asked? Well, FedEx, USPS, and UPS promise certain benefits in exchange for their service fees. All provide point-by-point tracking and on-time delivery money-back guarantees for their international shipping services. The only Postal Service option that includes those perks is the most expensive, Express Mail, which offers overnight delivery to most domestic locales but doesn’t get your hopes up, their express international service is not even in the same league. The Post Office promises 8-day delivery to Saudi Arabia for example and from our experience, you will be lucky to have it delivered in 6 weeks! Ask for your money back due to their service failure and you are in for a show and dance!

Best Way To Ship Overseas

Don’t expect a refund if the weather outside is frightful, for example, or if it’s too close to Christmas. FedEx, Post Office, and UPS are suspending their guarantees for ground delivery beginning on Dec. 11. They will still cover faster, pricier deliveries that arrive even one minute late through Dec. 18, when their guarantees will kick in only for delays of more than 90 minutes. So to answer your question:

Being in this business for over a decade, we feel comfortable making this statement, if your package is time-sensitive and important, use FedEx service, they have the fastest network to Europe, Asia, and Africa. For Packages going to Canada, use FedEx and UPS International Ground service, it is much cheaper and packages are delivered in 3 to 5 Business days depending on customs clearance. For large bulky items like crates, containers, and cars we recommend Ocean and Air cargo where you can save up to 40% off FedEx and UPS rates. Delivery of ocean cargo can take up to 6 weeks depending on the maritime transit time and frequency of shipping.

I was at your Neighborhood Parcel in Lowell two months ago to ship my Passport for renewal to Kenya and FedEx rate was over $100, I made the decision to go to the local Post Office instead to save money. A decision that I later regretted; I wish I listened to you because the Express Mail was supposed to arrive in Kenya in 8 Days according to the USPS clerk but months later I realized that the mail was a complete loss and nobody could help me! I am emailing you this letter to share it with my other Kenyan friends or anyone thinking of using any other service than FedEx. my advice doesn’t do it, the savings are not worth it! I have cumulated $500 in total cost to replace my passport..

Fantastic service! I used to travel to the Boson location and always struggled with traffic and bad service. I did a quick Google search and came up with Neighborhood Parcel FedEx service point. I used them for 3 years now and I am happy to endorse them for service and always having the best FedEx rates. Why would anyone pay retail rates at FedEx.com when they can use this company and support local businesses?

I am glad this location is near my house. I can do all my business here and be in and out in minutes. On my last visit, I was able to have them print my documents, notarize them, fax them back to my office then FedEx the originals to my boss. Awesome!
