    What company have you found to provide the safest shipping? Do they allow for insurance on eggs?

    USPS?

    UPS?

    FedEx?

    DHL?

    I "Had" good shipping with USPS. My packages got to where they was going in about 2 days. Till my last shipment when they sent it to where it was going and then sent it back halfway to me and then back to where it was going so I dont understand that but made my shipment 6 days late. I have heard UPS is really good for shipments but I can't say much on that because I have not used UPS.

    UPS will not ship eggs if you tell them there are eggs in the box.

    Really? But I have heard of somone sending eggs through UPS not sure if they told them or not but that they did. I wonder why UPS wouldn't ship eggs?

    Oh I know from personal experience IT CAN BE DONE. You just don't want to tell them you are shipping eggs.

    If you are shipping priority via USPS , it's FedEX. They do all the shipping for USPS.
