I picked up a nice Smith and Hawken teak chair in a going out of business sale at a really good price. The only problem is the chair was a floor model and already assembled. This made shipping the item very difficult. While it only weighed 40lbs UPS and Fedex calculate it's volume to determine a shipping price. since its so large, they would charge more than double the chair's cost. uShip was able to locate a shipper for me that would do the job at a price comporable to what UPS would charge if the chair was disassembled and boxed.
