Here is the Fedex site:
usually use Fedex Home Delivery. If it goes to a business then
use Fedex Ground and it's a bit cheaper. (If you select Fedex
Ground and it goes to a home it will cost the same as Home
Delivery but no delivery on weekend.)
Good for packages of about 5-7 lbs or more because its cheaper
and you get insurance and tracking for free.
The drop off is right there in Hawks Prairie.
If you make an account on-line you can print your own label,
tape it on the box and drop it off at Hawks Prairie.
US Postal service
In the US
0-1lb best if First Class (no insurance or tracking)
1-5 lbs cheapest is Parcel Post (no insurance or tracking).
0-4 lbs you can use Airmail Letter Post is cheaper and better
or more lbs then Economy Parcel Post
It's important to know if your package is under or over 4 lbs
because the rates can change dramatically.
There's no tracking for International USPS. Anything that needs
insurance needs to go Parcel Post which can dramatically change
the cost. On a high value item you probably want to insure it.
Something $100 or less can probably make it there no problem
uninsured. I've shipped maybe 150 packages overseas with none
being lost. If you put insurance on it it will be the same as
having a tracking number, more people are required to sign for
the package along the way so there is little likelyhood of it
I tried comparing prices with UPS and Fedex a while back and
saw that Fedex is usually cheaper or the same as UPS. DHL
is cheaper but they don't have a convenient drop off in
Lacey and they charge for things like pick-up. DHL is more
international so they might have more choices for shipping
overseas but I haven't looked into because of the drop off
is in Federal way and extra charges they have.
