    And they would not let them stop Saturday delivery to save some money. Now they charge rates on not only the weight, but also the size of the box. The volume it takes up in the truck.

    P.S. Sorry foir the Hijack.
    Oh yeah I don't doubt that a lot of these high shipping prices are legit. At least up here the cost to ship anything has gotten massively high.

    Hmm...I wonder if I can hijack my own post...

    Since y'all are talking about shipping, how's about going to see a few of my bottles for sale in the for sale section? Low shipping, plus I have goodies like Sher-A-Coca, Mugbased Dayton soda, some beer bottles, and coming soon, a killer hutch. Yes? No?

    Sorry, had to try.

    Hey Rusty, I don't know if this will be further hijacking or getting things back on track, but here's my best SS Coke which is also base embossed. You may've already seen it in another thread but here it is anyway. Pretty danged rare from what I've been told by the powers that be.

    Use USPS flat rate boxes whenever possible. They eliminate a lot of guesswork, stress, and headaches and you don't get hit with an unforeseen high cost to ship something.
