I may have to ship bases for my Folly that measure 4 ft x 6ft x a cupla inches -- basically a fancy board, from NYC to say, Newark, NJ and LA.
UPS wants $28 and $70, and FedEx wants $24 and $58, so FedEx is considerably cheaper (UPS winds up being 15-20% more expensive, for one-time deliveries), which surprised me.
If you have an account, there are also discounts for regular shippers, and I'm hoping these discounts are substantial.
Fedex is having someone call me to give me an idea of these discounts, while UPS won't even talk to me unless I already have an account -- which is already saying sumpn, eh?
It seems the smart thing to do is to have accounts with both, to keep them dueling.
The US Post office has a 130" girth rule or sumpn, which basically sez they're not gonna ship big stuff.
DHL no longer does domestic shipping. HF uses dert cheap YellowTruck, but you gotta then pick up from their terminal.
Are FedEx, UPS ultimately the only games in town?
