UPS store shipping

Are the shipping prices the same from the UPS store as they would be if I went to the actual UPS distribution?

I would think not. But you could get it quoted at the store. Take the dims and weight to www.ups.com and get it quoted there as well.

Fed-ex is more too and if they package it up expect to double the shipping cost if not more.

Fedex is far superior to UPS. You will pay more at UPS store. The Fedex Kinko's don't charge to much more.

If your shipping tires, Fedex FTW. UPS charges a surcharge if it's not in a box. I just wrap tires in shrink wrap and ship Fedex.

The SHIP charges are the same, but the UPS store offers packaging services and other stuff that you can pay more for. If you package it correctly, then yes, you will pay the same fee for the acutal shipping.



And, UPS guys look totally cute in the brown shorts
