Courier services for large and heavy items
If you need to ship an oversized or heavy item in the US there are a number of options available to you depending on how heavy the item is. For shipping large boxes and packages up to 70lbs the USPS ground service is a good option, but make sure you check your package is within the USPS weight and size limits.
