What's the best, most cost effective way?


Answer by  Lucyalicia92 (147)

It is very simple and not complicated at all to send a package. All you have to do is get a box to put your item in, get a postage stamp with both your name and address as well as the person that your sending it to, and drop it off at a local post office.

Have you noticed the cost of shipping packages continues to increase? Rather than spending a plethora of money at the post office, I choose to send things by media mail or in the one price postage box. Another great way is to sign up for free postage trial, use their service, then cancel before you pay a fee.

It depends on the weight and dimensions of the package, and its destination. USPS, UPS and FedEx compete for business, though each has some services others do not. So it depends on what exactly you need. Shop around. All three carriers have online price comparison charts.

Know beforehand when you want the recipient to receive the package. Through this, you will be able to look for the cheapest courier that is available. Given the time allowance, you will not need to rush things and you won't end up paying extra for an overnight delivery. Using the standard mail delivery is cheaper.

It is usually cheaper to purchase your own packaging versus buying one from the Post Office or UPS. Walmart and Target generally sell all types of packaging for cheap prices. To determine how much shipping is going to cost, go online to usps. com or theupsstore. com to calculate shipping costs. There are a variety of options available.

You send a package by putting whatever you want to send into a box. Then you need to write the address of the sender and the receiver. Take the box to the post office. There they will offer many shipping options.

You can get flat rate boxes at the post office - you can send anything you can fit in the box for a certain price. Otherwise, you pay to mail the package by how much it weighs. Flat rate is the best for heavy items - weight is the best for large not so heavy items.
