I offered a stock oem stereo (head unit) to someone in the States but I asked that he pay for shipping. Since it's too expensive to ship from Canada to the States I offered to do it when I visit in a couple weeks from Niagara Falls NY to Atlanta GA. I have no idea what it costs to ship and neither does the other person. Any suggestions on the best option to ship something that size and weight?

Depending on how big it is when you are in the US you may be able to ship it from a US Post Office in a "if it fits it ships" box. I shipped something to my sister for the holdiays that fit in the box but was very heavy and it only cost me about US$15.
I'm sure I could but since I'm not familiar with all the carriers, or what's even available in the States I could cut my time in half by only checking the ones recommended on this forum. Seems like a better way of doing things....no?
Thanks for the recommendations I'll check USPS and FedEx.
