Sorry, Wrong Number

Here at the Badge Company of New Jersey we have received a few phone calls recently, where the caller asks, "Is this Fed Ex?"

Um, no.

So we decided to see why this was happening. As it turns out, the toll-free number for Fed Ex is 1-800-GoFedEx, which translates into 1-800-463-3339.

Our toll-free number is 1-800-469-9333.

There has to be a fair amount of transposing of digits to get from the Fed Ex number to our number, but it happens.

We wonder how many calls Fed Ex gets where the caller asks, "Is this the Badge Company?"

You can always call our regular line, 1-908-735-7700. But sometimes those callers ask, "Is this Clinton Honda?" The Honda dealer’s number differs by one digit.

Maybe if you want to ship your Honda by Fed Ex we can help you, but otherwise we’ll stick to badges.
