I've experinced both , and my approaches are going to be on soldering and desoldering life of the PCB , They both are reflowable upto 4 times , after that the tiny pads might loose and seperate from the FR4 epoxy .. Signal quality have been measured with various scopes (LeCroy) and there is no significant resistive or inductive poor copper quality . Other measurements have been taken after the PCBs have been used for a long time and there is no bending or copper seperation issues detected . They are both good but I like the JLC a bit more than the PCBWAYs edge rails are more rigid that makes things easier  for the assembly machine . (They are not easily deformed or broken nor it is too hard to break them .)

I have used both of them in the past, and for low volume I didn't found any major difference.
If I had to choose, JLCPCB would have my preference, but it is purely subjective.

I didn't ordered recently, or at least not since Europe introduce this new VAT payment for non-European sourced items on 1st July 2021.
It is not clear if both companies includes VAT into order, and if not included, then country will charge you upon receipt the 20% extra for VAT and a fixed fee of ~7$ per shipment.
For low volume, the 7$ fixed fee make a big difference, while the VAT is what you would have paid anyway.

This is something I need to consider for next order...

   In my company, I use JLC and PCBWay in different terms.
   
     1. Cheap -> JLC
     2.  Quality -> PCBWay

   Because I found many quality problems with JLC such as solder mask, trace and so on.
   When I found problems with JLC's pcb. I complained to them and they asked me to take photos.
   I couldn't do it for them because the PCB is already assembled.

   Instead of PCBWay, they give back in credit without much more questions.

  For the shipping, there is no problem at all for both of them.
   

For me, if you need quality, The PCBWay is better than JLC.
(Usually, I order 2layer and 4 layer FR4 PCB)

Cheers !
