    Can large cabs like a 610 be shipped UPS and Fed Ex, or do they have to go freight?

    They can if they're under a certain size/weight packed. They can also go Greyhound which is often cheaper at the ~100lb size range.

    I asked that specific question about an 810
    cabinet. Zzsounds told me it had to ship freight
    but it only meant FedEx had to put it on a special
    truck and would still would be delivered to my
    house.

    When I had my Mesa 810 shipped in it had to be brought by truck freight because it was 175 lbs. The weight limit I was told for the 'normal' delivery trucks is 150 lbs max.

    Sounds like most 610s like an NV at 100lbs could go regular ground.

    + 1 for grayhound. By far the cheapest and eazy to deal with.

    Both UPS and FedEx offer freight services. Ampeg ships their cabinets via UPS freight. It goes in a truck rather than a plane so it takes a few days longer.

    It's worth checking the rates for all services. I shipped an amp recently FedEx and two day was less expensive the freight.
