Frequently Asked Questions about domestic shipping

1. What is the least expensive way to ship a package? The Answer: It depends! No one carrier is always the cheapest for every weight, size, or destination. That’s why Prime Pack & Ship offers all carriers.

2. What is the heaviest package I can send? The heaviest package that FedEx and UPS will accept is 150 lbs. Prime Pack & Ship offers freight services for heavier items.

3. What is the largest package I can send? For FedEx and UPS, the maximum size is 160 inches in combined length and girth where Length is the longest dimension, and girth is double the sum of Width and Height. Therefore, if you have a box that is 36 x 24 x 12, the length and girth is 96 inches. 96 = 36 +[(24+12)x2] Prime Pack & Ship provides freight shipping services for larger items.

4. How does size affect the cost of shipping? Size matters more than ever. Carriers use a system called “Dimensional Weight” to rate packages. That means a large light package can sometimes cost more than a small heavy one. For example, a box measuring 24x24x24 will be billed as though it weighs 72 lbs unless its actual weight is greater. Smart packing can save money. At Prime Pack & Ship, we strive to save you money by packing your shipments as efficiently as possible without compromising safety

5. How much does freight shipping cost? Freight companies determine shipment cost in a different way than parcel carriers. Size and weight are primary factors, but the type of items being shipped and how they are packed also makes a difference. If you have a large amount of boxes going to the same place, freight can sometimes provide a significant savings. If you aren’t sure what shipping option is best for you, ask Prime Pack & Ship! We’ll discuss your options and find the best solution for you.
