Default Was going to buy a Licks Solo Bag but...

Was going to purchase a Licks Solo Bag, a tool bag, and a gas cap but upon checkout, the invoice listed only two available shipping options for my address in California.
  • Express Mail - $54.00
  • Priority Mail - $25.10

That seems a bit excessive, especially since the solo bag is back ordered and estimated wait is minimum 2 weeks. I've shipped about a hundred items selling on ebay so I know maybe $10 bucks, 15 tops for the items I want.

Any constructive comments? If I'm just being cheap let me know. I just want a reasonable price for the services Im getting.

I have to agree with you. You could ship it UPS or Fedex cheaper than that. I would find what I wanted somewhere else.

I agree that shipping is quit pricey. No matter what coast you call home.

Yea it does to me, I do quite a bit of ebay and other shipping myself.
Guess they have not seen "if it fits it ships" commercial.
7 lbs is not heavy and it should not be that big of a package I sent a big package about a month ago and it weighed about 5lb and with insurance maybe 20 -25 bucks.
are they adding insurance and adding a "handling fee

This is the second or third Licks thread I have seen in about a month.

here is a link to a postage caculator check out the flat rate shipping boxes mid-page

There's a company that makes an identical bag plus they make a right side bag too. If memory serves me right the Licks bag only comes in the left side??? I wish I could remember the name of the co. I'll have to see if I can find it again.
