The price of shipping to New York is dependent on a number of factors, including how far your package needs to travel.
For US domestic deliveries, shipping companies use shipping zones to measure the distance a package will travel from the point of origin to the final destination. These shipping zones are made up of groups of zip codes and range from Zone 1 (the point of origin) to Zone 8 (the farthest destination).
For example, if you’re shipping from Los Angeles to New York, then LA is Zone 1 and New York is Zone 8.
The table below shows the shipping zones for some of our most popular lanes for shipping to New York*:
|Point of origin||Destination||Shipping zone|
|Florida||The Bronx||Zone 5|
|New Jersey||Staten Island||Zone 1|
|Washington||New York City||Zone 3|
*Based on USPS shipping zones
Why do shipping zones matter?
Although some shipping companies offer delivery services which have a flat rate regardless of the shipping zone, typically the further away the destination zone is from the point of origin, the more your shipping is likely to cost.
That’s why it’s important to provide the zip code for both the sender’s address and the recipient's address when you get a quote through our shipping calculator. If you provide both zip codes (along with the weight and dimensions of your package) it will ensure you get an accurate price.
