Shipping via Purolator (eShipper)


Carnivorous Plant Addict
I tried a new service called eShipper.
It's like the version of shipping.
You put your shipping info in, and they give you a list of rates for all the carriers.
I just did a shipment to BC from Sask and would have been $37 on Xpresspost.
Through eShipper it was $25 with next day delivery!
The box was a decent size due to the Isopods @ 9"x6"x5.5" but just 1lb
You can even have Purolator come to your house and pick the package up!
I just took it to work and will put with our regular daily pickup, but you can also drop off at any Puro outlet (Staples usually does Puro)

They have a sales team, and my assigned sales member tried to call me to "discuss" my business and how many packages I'd ship, but I just ignored the calls.
They gave up after 2 day, and emailed me instead to "check in"
I didn't reply, and it's been all quiet since.



Does it only offer Purolator? I usually use ShipTime which is a similar service.
They're able to offer cheaper prices because couriers usually give companies with large shipping volume a significant discount. These companies have a large shipping volume because they act as a broker between many individuals/small companies. They take a small cut of the discount and pass the rest of the savings onto us.
ShipTime offers Purolator, UPS, CanadaPost, Fedex, and a few others. I'd be interested in which offers a better price.
ShipTime puts all of the options available onto a single page making it easy to compare.

I only see Purolator, UPS and Canpar.

6x6x6 box @ 1LB


And here is the reverse.
Cheaper to come my way!

Ok, I tried ShipTime for the exact same shipment (I didn't list Canada post since it's not an option for eShipper)
Looks to be more expensive.
