    Default Shipping Charges

    What are the rest of you doing for shipping charges?
    If you ship in a Rite Way shipping box or JZs- BZs Battery box are you charging the customer for the box?
    If so, how much?

    Thanks

    $free express envelope seems the most common route now.

    Josh, the envelope is free at the post office. Put the queen cage inside, punch a few holes, and pay to ship it. My last queen came packaged that way.
    Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.

    JWPalmer,

    Ah I misinterpreted, I thought jcase was suggesting that he was getting queens shipped for free. :-)

    Don't we all wish...$35 for a queen and its $50 bucks by the time you pay shipping and insurance.

    USPS shipping is $25-35, depending on zip code. A small shipper holds 16 queens. If you would order a box full, and split them up among the club members, shipping for queens is something like [email protected] If you buy one queen, and have it shipped across the continent, well....
