I sold a club on the classifieds and ups charged me $36.19 to ship a club that's really not far away from Virginia to Indiana. With the basic $100 insurance and the slowest shipping ground residential. Did I get ripped off? Almost not worth selling clubs if I'm almost paying 40 bucks to ship a club using my own box and shipping label. What gives?

USPS, print & box yourself. Should be about $10-12 max for 1-2 zone shipments.

just did a quick check... Priority 2-day mail from 22904 (central VA) to 46011 (random zip in Indiana), 40x6x6, 3 lbs. Cost is $10.15.

Also, did you go to a UPS store? I'm pretty sure they raise rates around holidays

It was just like a 4x4x46 box. Enough to fit a few putters say. Just a regular club box. Ups got me good

Its the 46" length that cost you. I shipped an Orange Whip and if it were 1-2" shorter it wouldve cost 1/3 of the price to ship it. Cant remember what length jacked the price up but i want to say it was like 42-43". Least thats my experience with it im sure some of the guys on here know better ways around it. Till i figure it out i gave up trying to sell driver shafts. Got about 12 sitting in the basement that arent worth fooling with bc it would cost >1/2 what they worth just to ship.

Lol,use the shipping calculator so you know going in.  When I see #'s like this it's typically due to box size ballooning the rate.

Never ever shop UPS unless you have to.  It will always be your most expensive option.
