it's always at least $20.  in the continental US fedex/UPS ground might be cheaper, but for me i always use USPS.  it's the cheapest and fastest when alaska is factored in.

depends how far you're shipping, too, and how small you get the box.  a flat box cut to the smallest width and length is always going to be cheapest.  with USPS, i know that the way you cut the box can affect the price almost up to $20.

I usually go with USPS and that sounds about right. Doesn't hurt to go check out other places though.

congrats on your win yesterday!

Thanks for the quick responses! I feel a bit better now about it.

And thank you Joe! you won a board the other day as well right? Grats.

I actually just bought a sierra, so that is what this is all about.

Had a horrible week, this was nice.

Dog gashed herself open on a boat motor, couldn't get her in to the vet til the next day. no sleep to keep it from being open, the wrappings moved whenever she moved. Of course, she was fine all day with the stitches, but Monday she ate the stitches out and I came home on my lunch to the open wound. Now she has staples and a big cone around her head.
And on top of it all works been a mess.

Really needed something like this to pay some of these vet bills.

When you guys ship, do you tack on insurance?
If so, do you tack on replacement value or selling value?
 
Ex: I ship a board that was $500 brand new to a guy that I sold it to for $200.  Do you go with insurance for $200 or the original $500?

The replacement value.  You can't claim a used board is worth the new price.

Insure it for the full retail price.  Buying insurance is pretty reasonable, Not that much extra.
 
Also, you should take pictures to show the condition of the board. (for your own records in case of worse case scenario).
