"We don’t use UPS a lot, but have saved money on every package we have sent out. Definitely a “no brainer” - everyone should sign up!"

-Mary Beth Gerlach, Vice President of Business Management, Safety Service Systems

"As a sole proprietor with no staff I wear many hats. Through the Chamber’s member affinity program I signed up with UPS for all my shipping needs. Now I am able to print shipping labels right from my computer and schedule a pickup or drop off my packages at any UPS location. No standing in line because UPS e-mails me my shipping confirmation and then just bills my credit card at rates that are highly competitive. When time and money are tight, it’s nice that this is one less thing to worry about."

-Pattie Cagney Sheehan, Certified Mastectomy Fitter/Owner Second Act Cancer Recovery Boutique

Chamber members save $75 on Zipcar for Business with no setup fee.

Zipcar for Business is the smarter transportation solution to all your company’s needs. Taking taxis to client meetings and going to the rental counter are expensive and inconvenient. Not only are Zipcars around the corner from your office, but they’re also near your next business destination around the US, Canada, UK, and Spain. Drive sedans, EVs or Zipvans by the hour or the day with exclusive low rates Monday through Friday. (Gas and insurance included.)

Zipcar can get you to that meeting in record time! Reserve cars online by the hour or day with gas, insurance and mileage included. With over 700 cars in Chicago and thousands more nationwide, it’s easy to have wheels when you want them. Best of all, ChamberPlus members get low Zipcar for Business membership and driving rates.

Start a Zipcar account for your company and get free driving. All drivers that join on an individual billed account will get $25 in free driving and every direct billed account with 2+ drivers will receive $75 in free driving.

My name is Amy Sweet, and I’m a Catering and Events Manager for Roti Mediterranean Grill. I am a frequent user of Zip Car, and have been using their services for the last 2 years with Roti. Zip Car is a great service for us, because we use their cars to help us make deliveries, and cater to events that are farther away from the loop. We are not quite large enough as a company yet for delivery vans, so Zip Car helps us out tremendously.

I use Zip Car at least once a week if not more for Roti! Their cars are all over the city, so you have easy access. Their Customer Service is always fast and friendly, and the quality of their cars are amazing. They now have cargo vans which helps us out even more! I highly recommend them for any business or personal use.
