Remember this analogy: You haul aluminum cans to your local scrap yard. Let's assume that the yard pays $0.75/pound for them and they are 20 minutes from your house. If you haul a small bag containing one pound of cans, you're only going to get $0.75. The scrap yard does not pay you for bringing them in, just for the cans themselves. On the other hand, you crush your cans and on top of that, you collect cans from your neighbors and once a week, you walk a couple miles along the road and pick up any cans you find. Let's say this brings you to 20 pounds of cans collected for a month. That will be $15 in your pocket. The amount of gas burned is the same, the difference is the number of pounds of cans you bring in.

Funny how the only negative review of boardsort isn't actually a negative review of boardsort but a complaint about whatever carrier he used. There are ways to make it well worth the postage. Packing a box corectly, using a weight in a box size that won't incur a overweight charge, and using freight services. Read up on the forums and save up some high grade material before shipping a load.

I keep pointing to fedex. If it doesn't fit in a flat rate postage box. Create an online business account if you ship more than 4 packages a month. save up to 40% depending on volume.

Use PayPal to send your postal shipments. Great discounts.

TNT can ship anything under 100lbs depending on where you live.

Try uship.com.

This is why I like boardsort! A person complains, and the boardsort crew doesn't get all testy and angry, they give you options to consider which would make it more beneficial for you! Work with them and they can give you good advice....
