So I have sold a few peaces of furniture to people that need it mailed to them, They are like 24X48 coffie tables. What is the best shipping method? I used to go to the UPS store and pay them to box it up and ship it off but they have gotten so expensive.

I just don’t like the idea of designing small furniture to come apart, it make me feel like I am Ikea, am I wrong in thinking this way? Does anyone else do that?

I just used an online source for the first time called You enter your package size and weight, and they post back a quote list from several shipping companies. I had first called FedEx and was quoted $700 to ship my package. Using this site I was able to pick from the quote list and was charged $300. You can set everything up online or give them a call (which I did) and they have very helpful and polite people who set everything up for you. All I had to do was have the package ready for pickup. I was given this site information from a fellow lumberjock who was recieving the package who said they have used this site before. Pretty nice resource, with no fees to use.
