Location: Low DOS
Consistent sized valuable orders: priority mail flat rate boxes.
This is real good for CPUs, high telco and up, and ram.

Large single box orders: UPS ground
A big enough order can be a low graded as high peripheral or motherboard and not kill your payout.

Mega orders, lower value orders: fedex economy or ground
Use multiple standard sized boxes. FedEx remains more interested in size than weight. Some 90%+ of their shipping is by trailer. The more boxes you use to spread out the order less the cost per pound is. A single 50lb box costs more to ship than 10 five pound boxes!
You can string together 10-12 boxes on the consumer web site or up to 30 if you have a business account.
Or bring them into a fedex location to label and they can do as few or as many boxes per order as you want.
It’s my default preference.
