Spread the love

You’ve been dreaming of this day for as long as you can remember. The crisp air, the brilliant sunshine, and the beautiful powder—what else could you want on your birthday?

You want to capture those wonderful aromas and sights by taking a bunch of skis and snowboards with you wherever you go. You’ve been saving up to buy those dream skis, and today is the day you make that purchase. You grab your credit card and log onto the web, and bam—there’s a dozen similar offers waiting for you. One of them even has free shipping! That’s what you want to see—no strings attached, right?

Well, not exactly. There’s always a catch. You should know what those are before you press “buy”. There’s usually some kind of service charge (which can add up), and then there’s also shipping. You might be wondering how much that will cost. It depends on a lot of factors. So before you buy, let’s look at how much shipping will cost you—both ways—when you ship a couple of skis with FedEx. (And for the record, we are pretty sure that FedEx considers shipping multiple items as one package. The quote below is for two individual skis.)

Does FedEx Offer Free Shipping On Multiple Items?

Usually when you’re buying items online, the shipping cost is already built into the price. So you have no idea what you’re paying for shipping until you’re almost done purchasing the item(s). This can be a pain, especially if you have a lot of different items to ship. But fortunately, some online stores like Amazon, eBay and Shopbop have made this painless. They understand that you want to get your items fast, and they also realize that shipping multiple items at the same time is often cheaper than shipping one item per week. So they’ll often give you a shipping discount if you’re going to be shipping multiple items. (And let’s face facts—if you have a lot of stuff, you’re going to be shipping some items more than once. So this is definitely a discount you want to take advantage of.)

This is why you should always look for discounts when you’re shopping online. You can find lots of them if you know where to look. You’ll especially want to look for discounts if you’re going to be shipping multiple items, because then the shipping cost is usually broken down into multiple small charges that you’ll easily see and avoid paying in extra. So, as you can see, there are a lot of different factors that determine the shipping cost for your ski shipment. It can range from a couple to 50% depending on a lot of different factors. Luckily, we’ve done the research for you so you don’t have to. Let’s have a look.

What are the Main Factors That Affect The Shipping Cost Of My Ski Order?

There are basically three factors that affect the shipping cost of your ski order: weight, shipping destination and delivery time.

The first factor is weight—how much you weigh. If you’re underweight, you’ll pay a high shipping cost. Likewise, if you’re overweight, you’ll pay a lower cost. So it’s important to have a good idea of your current weight. You can easily find this out by going to Google and typing in “my weight” or “weigh loss” followed by your current weight. (Yes, people really do use the Internet to find out their weight. Don’t laugh. It’s true.)

The second factor that affects the shipping cost is the shipping destination. If you’re shipping to a rural area, you’ll pay a high shipping cost. If you’re shipping to a suburban area, you’ll pay a lower rate. (Notify your neighbors that you’re moving some stuff, and they’ll know what you mean.)

The third factor that affects the shipping cost is the delivery time. If you want your items to arrive faster, you’ll pay extra for two-day delivery. But if you want to make sure that your items arrive by a certain time, you’ll need to select one-day delivery. (Is your spouse/partner/friend/relative on the other side of the country? Do you have a friend/relative in another state? One-day delivery might not be good enough for you. You’ll either have to pay extra or make sure that they’re there before you leave for work. Think about it—you’ll either have to spend the extra money or make a trip that isn’t part of your day job, but instead is a side gig you’re doing for fun.)

How Much Does It Cost To Ship A Pair Of Skis By FedEx?

We mentioned above that shipping multiple items usually costs less than shipping a single item. But what is the cost difference when you’re shipping a pair of skis by FedEx? Let’s have a look.

On one end of the spectrum, you have economy shipping. Economy shipping is usually good for single items, such as a book, guitar, bike or any other one-item order. It’s also worth noting that you don’t need a shipping container to qualify for economy shipping. So if you’re sending a pair of skis, you’ll most likely qualify for economy shipping. (You might want to ask the shipping store if there’s anything else you can do to qualify for the best possible rate. Maybe you can upgrade some other item in your cart or order to qualify for a shipping discount.)

On the other end of the spectrum, you have express shipping. Express shipping is good for multiple items, such as large furniture deliveries, larger appliance deliveries, and any other order that needs to go over a certain amount of weight. It’s also worth noting that you do need a shipping container to qualify for express shipping. So if you’re sending a pair of skis, you’ll need a shipping container.

Now, let’s say that you want to order a pair of skis and you decide to go with economy shipping. You’ll need to add the shipping cost to your order, but you’ll also need to add a couple of other items as well. What other items you needs to add depends on what kind of skis you ordered. (You can always call the shipping store and ask them what other items are usually bundled together with skis. Based on what you told them about where you’re shipping to and what kind of skis you ordered, they should be able to advise you of what else to include in your order.)

So, as you can see, shipping a pair of skis can get expensive. There are several key factors that affect the cost of shipping your skis: your weight, the location you’re shipping to and the time you want your skis to arrive at their destination. As a general rule of thumb, the more weight you have, the higher the shipping cost. The more rural the location you’re shipping to, the higher the shipping cost. And the faster you want your skis to arrive, the higher the shipping cost as well. (Of course, you may want some things transported faster than others. If you have a large piece of furniture you want to get there as quickly as possible, then you may have to choose two-day or overnight shipping. (No one wants to be stuck with something they’re not expecting, especially when it comes to their home furniture.)

As noted above, there are several factors that affect the cost of shipping. The key is to be reasonable about what you want to ship and be sure you account for all the extra charges you’ll incur. You don’t want to order an expensive-looking grill and have it delivered to your home when you’re still struggling with whether or not to buy one.
