    What are my best options for cheap shipping? I am shipping one 37x12.50x16 TSL Radial. Weighs close to 100 pounds. Shipping from 08234.

    I had a pair of 38x15.50's shipped from Fort Worth, Texas to Billings, Montana and I think it was 40-50$ each with UPS.

    This is going to sound funny ..........but if there is a gray hound station in your area you will not beat there price. but this requires a little work from the guy receiving it....he would have to go to the grayhound station near him and pick it up. But this usually works out well becasue they are the ones saving the dollars on shipping.

    You can try www.forwardair.com

    They are the cheapest carrier without an account.

    If you can find someone with a carrier account (with any carrier) you can save a ton of cash!

    I just shipped 1,290 lbs worth of axles for $150...

    I bought a set of 35's on H2's and they were shipped across the country for about $125. He shipped them as seperate packages and just labeled each one.

    i second that, average price is $30 per 100#'s. u will have to palatize it & the buyer will have to go to another forward air place to pick it up though.
