I need to ship a suit up to Santa Barbara from huntington beach.
Is it generally cheaper to ship FedEx or UPS? Any other tips to decrease shipping cost, but ensure safe arrival of the wetsuit?

Thnx.

FedEx usually is cheapest from my experience and have a better track record than ups with me. Sent a few items ups and USPS over the years that have been lost. Never with FedEx. Maybe that's just me but I'd say go with FedEx

Thanks guys. I googled it and found that if the package is heavier than 3lbs then go FedEx.....otherwise go USPS.


Think I will try FedEx.
