    Anyone know around how much it costs?

    Advertisements
    Ok so usually I would send items that would fit in a flat rate box but my DF needs me to send him a couple of items that are too big to send in a flat rate box. so I will end up having to use my own box. do you know about how much more it will be for me to send a normal package instead of a flat rate box. I am supposed to mail it out tomorrow for him and just need an idea.

    I cant send it in multiple flat rate boxes. its a lap top and a lap top case. They are just a little too big to fit. And I cant order the extra large flat rate boxes off line because he needs it sent out tomorrow. grrrr

    what size is the xl flat rate one... ? beyond the standard "troops" one? I didn't know they had that! Anyways, depending on your post office they probably have them there. That's where I always went to pick them up

    I sent DH a laptop and it cost around $35 bucks. I shipped it in the box it came in and it was going from NJ to California.

    The XL ones are at the post office. Just make a post office run and grab one.

    Thank you everyone. I did finally get the package out it ended up costing me around 50 dollars but that didn't surprise me. He better get that box though because it has all his important stuff in it that would be a very long process for him to get back
