Decoy shipping costs
I may put some burlapped Herter's canvasback decoys I have up for sale......but it seems that shipping costs would be expensive for a dozen Model 72 decoys. What is the best way to do this? USPS, UPS, FedEx, freight? Thanks for any suggestions

See my earlier note on "How to fix this....." post.


USPS is fine for small stuff (generally) - but I use UPS for shipping whole rigs. Best I have found is shipping UPS BUT first taking the time to print a label and pay for the shipping here at home (I created an account). Our local hardware store is a UPS pickup. I seem to save about 20 % over their computer.


Hope this helps!

I just paid $14 and some change to ship a decoy from Missouri to Georgia via USPS Priority.

When I was still working, my employer allowed us to ship things using the company business account with UPS. Way way cheaper rate than you and I can get. Maybe check into that or box it all up and have a relative or friend ship using a business account?

Or search here for someone going to and from where you are, to where you want them to go. I've been in on that type of thing a few times...
