    Best shipping method

    What is the best and cheapest method to ship a car seat? I'm shipping a Joovy toy infant seat from WA to NH.

    Thanks!

    Ugh, I did that. (Joovy infant seat, CA to IA, I think.) I used USPS, and it wasn't cheap. Sometimes UPS is a little less expensive, but usually around the same ballpark. Not sure of other options that would be better.

    If you have a Greyhound station, Greyhound shipping (pick up at the station) can be cheap.

    Shipping is crazy expensive in Canada, so we use Greyhound for anything bigger than a shoebox.

    In my experience USPS is cheaper especially if the measurement of the height+length+width of the box is less than 36". With a toy car seat you might be in that ball park.
