I sold a guy in Miss a door panel, panel and shipping $50.

I went today to ship it, $54 just to ship it, doesn't include 25 for the box, packing and shit they wanted. WTF. I'm so pissed. Guy doesn't haw much to spend, and I hate to take a loss. I'm going to box it myself and try Post Office. Fak!!!

Shipping holds me back from selling random things on Ebay, I think I'll only sell small items! Hope it works out in your favor Glen.

Have you tried Greyhound to ship? They were super cheap last time I used them.

Glen, we have a small business and we ship stuff often. Never go to one of those stores that ship stuff. You will get hosed. Pick up a box, I'll betcha a TV box would be perfect. I use UPS online as I have an account. It has a different price structure than one of the mail box type of stores. Or try the Post Office. When I need a box I just go to the recycle center for cardboard. I always can find what I need. I bought a door panel from AZ, I know it was less than $35.

Thanks Tom, I'm going to get my account at UPS set back up. It cost me $62.75 to ship a frakin door panel. I quoted him $50 lost my shirt again. As I told Heidi, I'm piling all these door panels, seats, interior, into the 2 car shells and calling the crusher guy. I'm tired of this hobby. I never make any money.

I had good luck with FedEx, just wrapped it all up good with random cardboard everytime it was something that didn't fit in a box, etc.

Yeah, door panels are tricky to ship. I charged $50 on a set of 4. Ended up costing $67. I know how you feel.

Whenever I ship, I go to the FedEx website, find some place in East B.F. California and set it as my destination, then measure the packaging, weight, etc., and charge that as my shipping, just to make sure I don't get screwed. If the auction ends up being way closer, like CT or something, I'll generally give the person a break if the cost is a ton less.
