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.
Anything over 70lbs and you’ll need to consider one of the large and heavy courier services from FedEx or UPS. You can find out more about these services below.
