With Shyp, your total shipping cost is a combination of your shipping + pickup + packaging rates.
When you ship with us, we automatically compare rates across major carriers including USPS, UPS, FedEx, DHL, and OnTrac to choose the cheapest rate for every shipment.
While we aim to give you the best estimate possible before we pick up and ship an item, please note that this final rate will depend on packaged size and dimensions and may vary slightly. You will receive an itemized invoice once we ship your item out with the carrier.
You can add on Signature Confirmation and Insurance (first $100 free) to each shipment, depending on carrier.
Shyp charges a $5-15 pickup fee per pickup, depending on the number of items in your shipment. For one item in a pickup, we charge $15 per visit. For two items in one pickup, we charge $10 per visit. For three or more items in one pickup, we charge $5 per visit.
This pickup fee is the rate for the entire visit, not per item. For example, if you're shipping five items, your pickup will be a flat $5 for the entire pickup, not $25 (not $5/item).
We offer five packaging sizes, ranging from soft mailer/envelope sizes up to extra large.
Costs are based on your item's total volume after packaging (length x width x height). For example, while an unpackaged item's volume may appear to fall in our small category, with packaging, the item's final volume may be medium.
For all items, our technicians use just the right amount of packaging to protect items while minimizing your packaging and shipping costs.
Extra handling and packaging materials for fragile items like vases and computers is included free of charge. Note that fragile items may have larger dimensions than less fragile shipments due to extra materials like bubble wrap, which adds a few inches to final dimensions.
No packaging costs are added if you choose to handle packaging yourself. Select “I’ll package my shipment” in the app, schedule a pickup, and we’ll find the lowest shipping rate for your pre-packaged shipments.
If you ship more than 20 items per month, our volume discounts apply to pickup, packaging, and shipping costs.
