    I agree with Rich, Fedex was always cheaper for big boxes compared to UPS and USPS. I didn't know greyhound shipped though.

    USPS will ship flat rate up to 70lbs.

    UPS also has a cheaper alternative, but takes a few days longer. Thats where they ship to the post office, and they to the final delivery. Cost wise...dunno, ive never shipped that way, but had stuff shipped to me using it.

    IF it will fit in a large flat rate box only.............. not viable for large packages.
