Shipping Costs?

What should I expect to pay for shipping a set of all pro 4" rears from the west coast to Oklahoma. I got a quote and it seemed high to me. They want $98 to ship the leaves at a weight of 128lbs using UPS ground. This is coming from an individual. They are used leaves.

It cost me $35 to have two 7 leaf waggy springs shipped from Missouri to WV. So that estimate is close since OK to CA is further. DOnt box the springs tape two together and ship them open.

The guy is shipping them to me. I think it is a local mailing place that is doing the sending. Going to try and get them here using FedEx Express since I work there. Hopefully his mailing place will ship it that way.

you can log onto UPS.com and put the zip codes in and it will tell you how much it would cost.

I work in a warehouse and ship UPS all day. Give me the zips and I can do it for you

92080 to 74133. I didn't think the leafs would weight that much.

It's going to depend on a lot of variables like if it's going to a business, whether you have a UPS account, etc, etc.

Forward Air or Freight Quote is the best way to go if you don't have an account with either FedEx or UPS.

If you don't ship them in a box you will get an additional handling charge.$5 to $10 I believe.Also those store front places charge their fee on top of UPS/Fed EX charges.For the same cost it can be picked-up at your door.
