Hello, I never shipped parts out before. I went to the US post office and they gave me a price of $11.00. And I also went to a privately owned mailing store and it was $44.00 for the same item. I am wondering. I am going to go to UPS counter and ask what is the price for shipping. Is UPS more expensive than the US post office? Thank you for your reply
It depends on the part. I've been shipping parts lately via US Postal Service Priority mail. It 2-3 days in the states, and seems to consistenly beat UPS prices with lower weigth items... (under 15lbs).
Ozarkjeep is right, insure for more than what the product is worht. The first $100 are insured for free (UPS) and then it cost $0.75 per $100 extra. $200 extra insurance is only $1.50. It's well worth spending and extra $1.50.
I will add one more thing to the UPS claims thing. If it can be fixed or repaired for under $100...UPS will basically just cut you a check with no inspection of the part...if its over $100 damage...they need to inspect it before any claims.
