    Mailing a surfboard $$

    Anyone know how much it costs to mail a surfboard from Miami, FL to Philadelphia, PA?

    Please let me know what you think

    Thanks

    If you do freight probably 80-120... if boxed correctly you shouldn't have damage.

    Depends how many pieces you cut it into to fit in the smaller box. You'll save money that way.

    BTW, postage stamps won't stay on if there's wax still on the board.

    FedEx, I think around 65-75 from east to west on a short board

    there are alot of options, than having a shop box and ship via ups...
    (is that fedex...home or from store location?..i know in CA..if you shipped from a kinkos /fedex
    to another .it was pretty reasonable)..it takes me maybe 2 hrs..$25 in materials from surf source or Home Depot
    to box a 7-8'...quick 45 minute roundtrip drive to amtrak..easy peazy..

    pm update...a 7.4 hull was shipped from RI to FLA..tuesday...got it friday morning...via amtrak
    not a scratch...$64(w/insurance)..

    you guys are lucky. I spent 300$+ shipping a few boards from cali to maui. But thats a lil different than over land.
