    Shipping expense questions

    Im trying to figure out how much it would cost to ship one of my snakes from nevada to Texas. They gave me their zip code but it's saying it'll cost me $70 just to ship it plus $22 for the kit.

    Could this be because I'm looking it up on a weekend?
    Is it always so much?
    Do you charge the recipient for both the shipping and the kit?
    This would be my first time shipping. I appreciate any type of feedback. Thank.

    Who are you using syr? Shipping depends on the size of the box weight of the entire package and distance it is going. So yes it's quite possible at $70. I've had several packages cost more than that but most are less.

    Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired.

    Yes, I'm using syr. I had put in the dimensions of the box at 12 9 6. And I put 2 lbs. That was just a rough estimate for weight. And it came out to be a little over $70.

    Have you used one of their coupons? You can get a one time discount on a shipment. Just Google it.
