The other day I took my daugther's bike up to our UPS pickup to ship it and it was going to costs around $100 to CA. The most it has ever costs was $37 to the left coast. The gal, who has shipped many bikes and frames for me, said UPS had a rate increase. I could go with that, however this would be more than just a rate increase. She did say that if I reduced the size of the box by 3 inches it would go down to $80. Anyone else out there had similar experiences? this concerns me as I have several frames on ebay and will be listing more with a chance of a bike or two as well. Would hate to mislead a bidder on shipping costs.
You can e-mail me off list.
