Those folks - companies and individuals- that live in the upper Midwest have it made with Speedee Delivery (or what ever the name is). But that isnít an option for the rest of us.

Bottom line - if you are in the mail order business, you have to ship merchandise,

alot went to Speede out here in the midwest parts more because of when UPS was on strike so Speede move south of me more. They do cost less. But other parts you hope for the best .They got us no matter what we say. To bad.

SpeeDee is awesome. They will ship a complete skinning machine within their delivery zone for under $100 and it arrives in 1-2 days. FedX, UPS and others want $300+ due to its length and weight. USPS won't even ship it last I checked.

I use mostly priority mail these days but some fedex home delivery for "affordable" shipping. What are you gonna do, drive it half way across the country?

Seems like everything is going up and very fast. Employers of low wage earners are having to pay more for labor how are you going to cover the prices, raise the product price. Tariffs have hurt a lot of businesses also and they pass it down to the consumer. For every action there is a reaction lot of things have change in this administration some good some not so good.
