How can i ship 150 pounds?

Answer

It depends on the shipping company and the service you choose. For example, FedEx offers a freight quote tool on their website that helps you calculate the cost of shipping large or heavy items. You can also get a free estimate by calling their customer service line.

Use corrugated cardboard for the outer box and package non-corrugated boxes inside instead of shipping these boxes on their own. For instance, if a guitar you’re shipping came inside a non-corrugated box, you should place the entire box inside a corrugated cardboard box for shipping. Use double-wall boxes if the item you’re shipping is heavy but under 150 pounds.

Other cheapest ways to ship 150 pounds

Best Shipping for Oversized Packages: FedEx Home Delivery
For furniture and other heavy or bulky items, you’ll have to look elsewhere than the U.S. Postal Service. Priority Mail through the USPS can’t weigh more than 70 pounds. That means UPS or FedEx will be your best bet for oversized packages. Both carriers will ship up to 150 pounds with their regular shipping services.

Pricing for large packages can depend on weight, dimensions and the destination. “It’s always difficult to make an apples-to-apples comparison,” Agyemang notes.

However, assuming you are sending a 100-pound box from New York to California, FedEx Home Delivery narrowly beats out UPS when it comes to shipping cross-country. Its quote is $178 with delivery in four days. UPS Ground Service also has a four-day transit time for a price of $180.61.

UPS Rates

UPS does put limitations on shipping large packages via their small package delivery network. If a package is deemed as in the Over Maximum segment, it is unable to be shipped in this method. A package is considered Over Maximum if it:

  • Exceeds 150 pounds
  • Exceeds 108 inches in length
  • Exceeds 165 inches in length & girth
  • Has a large size-to-weight ratio.

Conclusion

Shipping can be a pain in the neck, especially when you have to ship big boxes. But it doesn’t need eating into your margins if done right! Check out these tips on how shipping different items and packing them wisely will save time as well money from being wasted by going through all this trouble with fulfillment providers who are available for hire or even just doing some outsourcing work themselves so they don’t get overworked themselves
