Shipping

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Youngspanion, Oct 17, 2005.


  1. Is 120.00$ the average price with insurance and packing through UPS from New York and California?
     
  2. Are we talking about a bass? Then no.

    The size, weight and value will effect the cost of shipping.

    How is it being shipped, Ground?

    Did you pack it yourself? UPS stores charge an arm and a leg for packing.
     
  3. Yes ground.

    Yes UPS is packing for 30 dollars. I think they can do a better job and besides, the guy insinuated that if they pack it the insurance company will not investigate and therefore I will be reimbersed quickly.
     
  4. $90 is still high to ship from NY to CA

    go here: http://wwwapps.ups.com/calTimeCost?loc=en_US
    you can calculate shipping yourself


    I think most people will ship a bass for around $30-$40

    Maybe someone else who has shipped a bass can chime in.


    On the insurance, That's pretty much BS. I'm sure if they packed it that would be true, but insurance is insurance. If it's insured the package is covered no matter who does the packing. Besides, that is only "if" something happens to the package.
