  • Priority mail...they have a box that if you can get 75lbs in it, they will ship it the same as if you got 5lbs in it.

  • Fedex GROUND. It's cheaper than the post office and UPS

  • Fedex just announced rate hikes.....the flat rate boxes are probably cheapest. And if you print the label online you save an additional $1 (I think it's $1) on the flat rate cost!!!

  • After about 4 lbs, it is cheaper to ship most packages UPS.

  • My package will be around 9 pounds. Should I use, Fed Ex,UPS or post office? BTW,whatever happened to the shipping company that had the Yellow & Red trucks? Sorry,I can't remember their name right now.
