Good Questions: Bi-Coastal Shipping News?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,

i have to ship 2 newly reupholstered, mid-century club chairs from los angeles to brooklyn. the ‘reasonably priced’ shippers that the store i bought them suggested ended up not being so reasonable.

fed ex ground gave me a much cheaper quote with a shorter transit time. the chairs are pretty sturdy, too. do you think this is a bad idea? any other suggestions?

thanks – mpt

Dear MT,

Without knowing the prices involved, we would say we trust FedEx, they have always been good to us.

How much are the prices??

We guestimate that two club chairs should cost about $200-300.

Anyone else??
