What is the cheapest way to ship skis across the US?
I did a deal with someone and he is saying that every single place wants over $100 to ship a pair of 173 Chronics, with bindings. From Connecticut to Alaska
I recently bought skis from someone in SLC and he shipped them for 30 through UPS.
What would be the cheapest way to ship?
I sold a pair of 173 chronics with bindings that I shipped 2 years ago from PA to Iowa via fedex and it was something around 30. Was that a quoted price or just someone telling you it would cost that much?

yeah def get your own box, will def save you some cash as they charge up the ass for boxes that size etc. ive shipped a couple pairs of skis out east, and to arizona from montana and each time it was 32.00, from montana to boston, and montana to arizona, both were 32.00. good way to grab a good box is just to go to any ski shop and ask if they have any spare ski cardboard boxes, each time i went and asked i got free boxes from two different stores so that pretty much a guaranteed way to save you some bucks. since your shipping to alaska it will obviously be a lil more money, but saving cash by doing things like getting your own box and packing / taping it yourself will really save you some bucks. they charged by brother one time for a box for his skis he was shipping, and just the box and the packaging was 18.00. such a waste of money if you can get your own box and a roll of tape. good luck man.
Not to sound like a broken record dude, but Alaska?? You know where that is right??
Just did the fedex calculator and 100 sounds right.
Much better option would be to take a hacksaw to em and ship it in thirds. Oversized packages are super pricey.

I think I got mine rush delivered by ups from Easton, PA to Burlington, VT for around $50, I think a little under. 177 Nordica Ignitions (88 waist, park/all mountain ski) with bindings. They bubble wrapped them, provided the box, and I think they were insured too. I could see Alaska being more expensive though. Maybe you could get them shipped to Seattle if you have a friend/relative there and then have them mail it to you or pick it up (if you are close enough). I would suggest the ideas other people had though first, this would only be a last resort.
