best service to ship a gig bag?
I've got 4 padded levy's gig bags i'm not using i'd like to sell on here but I can't figure ont the best/cheapest way to ship them, I wanted to charge like $20 each, plus shipping if anybodys interested 3 of them are perfect, 1 is a little frayed on the top and bottom

The tough part about shipping gig bags isn't the weight, but the volume. It takes a largish box even if you fold up the bag 12 times. I'd say $20 is a reasonable starting point for shipping—if it's less, it won't be much less; if it's more it won't be much more, for a common gig bag. The size of the box is the thing, and some gig bags cannot be folded into a smaller space. Try using the calculators at the UPS and FedEx websites. The USPS has the smallest size restrictions, so, once again, it depends on what you can cram it into without messing it up.

yea that's about what I was thinking and who want to spend $40 total on a padded gig bag, even really sweet levy's added gig bags

Use the calculators. Get definite figures for specific packages. Then you'll know how to price them. Good luck.

I recall sending two basic gig bags across the country (CA) in the same box for $24, packed tightly.
