Whether you plan on using the same Service Provider for future shipments or not, it makes sense to establish an account with the one you choose. This can result in discounted offers, and sometimes the Service Provider lets you wait to pay until after the shipment is successfully completed. Even on a one-time shipment, it's advisable to ask the company for a discount. Plan ahead and leave plenty of time for your shipment to get there so you avoid premiums. If your shipment can be divided into several standard-sized parcels, consider the multiple-package options which offer a discount on shipments of 200 pounds or more.
