So, I just sold a pair of headlights to a member here and used UPS Ground (Slow Boat to China style) I shipped from Minnesota to California. I sold them for $40.00 delivered, figuring shipping would come to 15-20 bucks. Oh no, It was $31.87 for a 7 pound box with the box being about 18"x 18"x 9" .(they forgot to tell me to bend over and cough :shock: :shock: ) regionally I always use Speedy Delivery service. and I was able to ship a Tranny (roughly 75 LBs) for $50.00 to Nebraska. does anyone have a better Idea/solution ??

Maybe we should start a thread about cheaper shipping solutions for us newbies to the shipping world ??? (Maybe I Just Did. :oops: :oops: )

Thanks to each, Best wishes all,Jonathan

I'd be particularly interested in the best shipping solutions to and from Canada.

I use Canada post and USPS unless someone wants different. I check the size and weight and go here...

When having parts shipped to me I use the same or Greyhound COD if I want to pay for the shipping on my end. I don't think Greyhound does international though.

I'll tell you what I don't use and that is UPS.

CanadaPost or USPS are perfectly fine by me.
