    Default shipping 50lbs. price differences.

    so i bought something that's kind of heavy (50 lbs.) that will be shipped from outside of Austin.
    the people insist on using ups and it will be $26.

    so i checked around and based on the information they supplied as far as dimensions and weight here's a difference in price:

    USPS parcel - around $40
    UPS - under $30, if dropped at a UPS center
    DHL - under $25, which included a pickup charge and insurance
    FedEx - under $20, insurance included

    i wasn't meaning it that way. i got a great deal on what i bought. i'm ok paying the $26, despite constant delivery problems with UPS.

    i was just giving an example to folks to show what a big difference there is for shipping heavier stuff.
