Shipping costs!

Well I was wondering about the shipping cost for a blaster topend I'll be send it for porting hopefully Monday ( as long as I figure out why it isn't starting this weekend)

For the guys who have shipped what was most cost efficient

I work at a warehouse an probably could get a discount anyone remember from there blaster an approxament weight so I could price this an be ready for the ship out

 Top end shouldn't run more than $18 bucks, for ups, fed ex, or USPS.  I prefer postal service flat rat boxes.  Weight of it is 10 lbs!

Make sure that you take the time to package it well..... keep it from rattling around in the box.  Use a nice, solid, heavy cardboard box, and tape it up well.  It amazes me how many times customers ship things to me without any packaging material in the box, etc.

I generally use USPS or UPS..... for something of that weight, UPS is usually more affordable, and they have much better tracking, and insurance.  Depending on how far you are shipping, i would expect it to be around $20 or so to ship the entire topend.... nothing crazy.

If there one thing I learned about shippig! Pack that box tight they will be able to start a bomb fire with the amount of parking paper in there...

I'll use the shippin materials from work ( freebie) it will be well packed an well sealed in a nice box before it leaves the state of Maryland!

Put a return label in the box with the address's reversed inside of a plastic baggie.  It'll cost you less to do that than for me to ship it back to you using any other method!

Yeah that what I was thinking I haven't ever done a return label Im tryin to figure out how to get that now.

Round trip will be cheaper then a 1 way not shipping out of my work!

for me I usually use USPS due to fed ex and ups being more expensive, it cost me 15 the last time I shipped just a top end and the whole motor about 40

FedEx an ups aare faster then the postal service. And like woodward said they offer better insurance an tracking.
