    OK, so I ordered a Power Mac G5.

    Selected it to ship to a business location (my mom's work).

    I was expecting either FedEx, DHL, or UPS. But the order status says "Shipping Method: Bestway." And umm, I've never heard of Bestway shipping. Has anyone?

    we've used them here for our large/heavy cargo shipments (200+lbs).
    experiences were neither good nor bad... pretty typical shipping

    Hmm. I don't think my G5 + other items are over 200 lbs. :p

    Interesting. Do you think my mom's business location had something to do with it. I doubt her work is ordering lots of Macs (typical PC-using corporation). Or does Bestway consolidate with other things on its way to a particular place?

    it's just when we receive large shipments, otherwise, we have a contract rate with DHL when we send stuff out... so all I know is that they drive beat-up trailers and they show up on the 10th floor with our stuff. I have seen inside the trailer, and everything inside was large boxes.
