I need to ship a 12x12x15 box to China that weighs about 10 lbs. What's the cheapest, quickest way to ship it? UPS wants about $250. I need delivery confirmation and it needs to get there within about 5-7 business days.

Flights go over every night. Find someone willing to check it or carry on.

You have to send them things so they can understand. You’ll spend months attempting to explain the most basic concept possible if you don’t.

USPS express should get it there within 7 days pending customs doesn't throw a fit.

10lb will run you about $55.58 or so via priority , express will run 78.15.

That's a sure way to find yourself in a heap of trouble.

Why not have the person at the other end find a cheap knockoff and reimburse them? The Chinese copy everything on the planet.

I Money order or wire transfer would be the fastest way.

FedEx has a service called "Great Rates".
Call and ask which day of the week is best for where your shipping to.

Head over to your local scrapyard and toss it in the steel pile.

A slow boat, obviously. It's traditional.

I would help but I'm not returning to China until October 16. If the package is for your girlfriend I can hand deliver

not unless they lie about something. I wasn't suggesting doing anything prohibited. Have you worked in the Far East?

I thought China was "exit only"

Just hire a couple of illegal Mexicans with a row boat. TT

attach your package to a CEO who wants the business to grow and prosper rather than shrink and fail.

Those two nations actually have armed military on their borders. I have no doubt they'd shoot without blinking an eye.

USPS Express Mail will be your best bet.

I ship back and forth every month. I've used just about everything you can use.

DHL is all I use now. No hassles, no headaches. And they are fast! What province??

ps. my last two boxes I received recently were about 20x20x20 and 40# each. 2 boxes = $600

But I am sure they bumped up the price a bit on me. I hope it helps.
