I need to have some wheels and tires shipped to me do we get a discount on shipping?? If so how?
Unfortunately, I don't believe we do. I never have nor have I heard of anybody else receiving any kind of discount.
Personally, I have often wondered why, But I guess it would make a lot more headaches, then it was worth.
No, we don't get a discount. Customers are shocked when I tell them I have to pay the same rate they do. Seems like we would if we walked into a Customer Counter and showed our ID.
Be glad we don't. Every friend, relative and neighbor would have you hauling stuff in every day.
Check UPSers.com for some discounts offered by the UPS stores, generally around holidays
Only discount you get is by manipulating your package data(size weight, etc)
Of course I wouldn't condone it, or suggest it. Definitely don't send a 50lb box of paper and say its a letter.
No discount for us now theres a big surprise
Discount? Heck I can't even get into our cust. counter during their hours, I'm on the road.
a big N-O
thats why i use DHL
And your package won't be destroyed.
During my orientation I was told there is no discout for shipping for UPS employees, because... (are you ready for this?) they figure between the wages and benifits we are compensated well enough.
You actually pay more than most of your customers to ship something. We actually pay the published rate, most customers that do any kind of volume get a discounted rate. How bad is that???
Duh, so take your stuff to one of them and have them ship it for you. Not trying to be mean but that's what I have to do, as our cust. counter is only open when I am out on route.
I setup my own internet account. Type it, print the label, take it to work, leave it in the customer counter, done.
Separate names with a comma.
