Shipping Parts

Postby Jim Reid » Tue Oct 06, 2015 7:47 am

In case someone hasn't shipped any parts lately UPS in my thinking has gone out of sight with prices I called them gave the dimensions and weight $25 it was a distributor going to Stan in AL I placed it in a USPS flat rate box $12.65.

USPS seems to be the best deal right now for small packages. I guess it's because of the taxpayer subsidies. :D You can do even better most times if you use your own box and regular Priority Mail.

And if you ship online with USPS that same item would have cost $8.10 through USPS using a regional box.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

If you go on line with UPS and register you can ship quite a bit cheaper than going through their store.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Did you call a UPS store or a depot? The UPS store is probably charging you for packing and shipping, but they are more expensive to begin with at the store than a depot, or even if you have them pick it up.

As Barnyard said , using USPS regional shipping box rates are a big money saver in some cases , depending on the package destination. In some cases its not attractive. Tie that with package pick up at your door and it is a pretty nice deal. For me UPS has gotten a bit pricey on smaller items. :D

Package arrived today (shipped on Monday), delivered to my rural mailbox by carrier, priority mail, insured. Not bad for $12.65 shipping, even though the price of fuel is less than $2/gallon now. I'm a happy Cubber. :D

For heavy items, i have found Fedex ground to be a much better price than UPS.
