I had four dining chairs that I wanted to give to my sister who is living in Manhattan, and has two chairs. My first thought was to use UPS. I measured the chairs and weight, and went to staples for a large box. Staples did not have the correct box size that I needed, and I would have to order the correct box size online, and wait to receive the boxes before I could ship my chairs. I did an estimate on ups.com to see how much it would cost, and for one box that could hold two chairs, it would have cost $110. Next I googled shipping companies, and stumbled onto the uship.com website. Mike responded with a good price, closest to my limit.
