    Just shipped some stuff today and priced shipping a x-fer case.

    I was told by the shipping man that anything over 70lbs is a lot more expensive.
    Also of the three measurements (length, height, width); if the 2nd or 3rd is over 30" it's alot more expensive.

    Just FYI

    70 pounds is the maximum weight OSHA allows one person to lift. So anything heavier requires 2 people, dolly, lift, etc. Hence an extra charge.

    Transportation carriers have what is called Dim Weight and Oversize which means is the object is large and weight not so much they use that instead of the actual weight. It allows them to recover the space even though the weight is not that much. The number of extra charges is more than 2 pages for most of the carriers unless they have been negotiatied out.
