Default Shipping MD3 Nose

I have a brand new MD3 nose and have been quoted by UPS that it will cost me $175 to ship it from NC to PA. They say the the size of the package 60x24x12 warrants a weight of 135 lb. when it is only 20 lb. Any suggestions on how to ship this at a reasonable cost?

Try fedex at work we have dropped ups for this very reason and have went with fedex.

Yes fedex is a little more reasonable but because of the size its still going to cost. I had a guy ship me some fenders for my nova thru fedex from PA to Fla and waight didnt matter it was the size. I was told anything over 60" was another price. They said it falls under bulk rate maybe thats way so much. The guy i bought the finders from told me 30.00 and went to ship with ups and was told 225.00, ended up 120.00 with fedex and had them in three days.

Good luck!
