You might be asking, "How is PostalAnnex+ different than any other shipping franchise?"
It's a good question, as not all shipping franchises are equal.
Simply put, PostalAnnex+ offers its customers choices in shipping. UPS, FedEx, Postal Service and in some areas even DHL for international shipments. At some of our competitors, they offer only one carrier for shipping. Is that what's best for the customer? We don't think it is.
For example, FedEx limits insurance on shipments containing jewelry to $1,000 while UPS can insure for up to $50,000 (see carrier's tariffs for complete information). If you were at a location that only ships FedEx, you might be out of luck on a $2,000 piece of jewelry missing.
On the other hand, your overnight letter of concert tickets is covered by UPS for a replacement cost only up to $100 while FedEx covers up to $50,000. You'd be out of luck if you were at a store that only ships UPS and it cost more than $100 to replace lost or delayed tickets.
So you see, having a choice allows the customer to choose the carrier that is best for their shipment. Certainly cost is one important factor, but coverage in case something goes wrong is important, especially in the rare occurrences when help is needed.
