    $17 to send me a 10.5oz package... mon dieu, pinballlife.com.

    Anyone care to recommend a vendor or two with a reasonable mailing charge?

    Seems high. Pinball life usually has options for shipping at check out. Maybe try calling them as it was an error?

    They are a platinum vendor and I'm sure will take your inquiry via phone.

    I've mostly been going with UPS and a shipping label company (ie, shippo), or occasionally USPS flat rate priority (again, with shippo), but that's been slowly going up in price. I haven't shipped anything with fedex in a long time since they're the most expensive of the big 3.

    I just gotta ask. Is that your real name?

    Something happened recently. For a couple weeks UPS was not even an option. Only FedEx over $20 for a small package. The same thing a couple months ago was $10-12 UPS. I just got an updated shipping quote for the above order it’s now like the OP’s at $17…

    Funny how I can spend hundreds yet panties get wadded over five bucks but it is what it is. Human nature at its finest.

    My kid and her boyfriend forgot to pack the legs to their big ass dining room table when they moved to Texas (from Florida). They shipped them through Pirateship for $29. It will save you money...

    Agree with calling them as I just purchased a set of pinball legs from them, plus a few small items, and paid just under 16$ to ship to PA.
