    I recently sold two on eBay, using UPS to deliver -- before checking UPS rates.

    Both TiVos were in original TiVo packaging. To ship + insure + "require signature" on a Premier was $26 (to go 300 miles north, in-state) and a S3 was $38 (to from the east coast to Colorado).

    Was curious what folks were using as their preferred shipper for their sold TiVos.

    Thanks!

    I've always used FedEx home ground shipping. I got the lowest rates from them.

    I have always used USPS. Premieres are fairly light so usually go fairly cheap. I haven't had to file a claim, but I have read that it is fairly time consuming and low level of success with all carriers. I only use carriers other than USPS when I don't have the appropriate packing materials, and I want the shipper to pack it up. ( I am talking about non TiVo items. )
