Looking to ship, safely, a number of S1's. Has anyone shipped or received one lately that can share cost / tips?

Would two fit in a Large Flat Rate Priority box from USPS? My geometry stinks, sorry because that's a super easy question for some. Just want to make sure the seller receives them safely and economically.

thanks all!

Based on my recent research on shipping S1's, two will not fit inside a USPS Priority Flat Rate Box.

Inside of the Box Dimensions are: 12" x 12" x 5-1/2"
Antmain S1 Dimensions are: 5.315" x 6.102" x 11.81"

Hope this helps  Smiley

I've found FedEx Ground most economical for them.
However, there's really no way to send them coast-to-coast at a reasonable price.

Yes, but if I hit the AntMiner with a hammer a few times... it should work eventually?

potential buyers, don't read this.

If you have the original box... group 4 of them together, either inside of a medium sized moving box from lowes/home depot/uhaul.  Or just tape the boxes together in an OCD fashion that makes them feel like 1 box. 

We ship these things via UPS ground - and with an account -- not the overpriced ups store rate --- you can normally ship them pretty cheap.  50lbs coast to coast is typically 25$ or $30.

Thank you!

Also, yes I have all the original boxes and know where I can find a bigger box or two to fit them in. Thanks!

You want to bundle them 4 or so together.  Just shipped a 61lb box (25x17x14) for $25 east coast to east coast.  Anyone can get a decent UPS discount by creating an account and linking it to ebay.

lowes/home depot/uhaul boxes -- medium is 18x18x16 and large is 18x18x24.  Just an FYI... the medium is going to go dimensional weight of at least 32lbs, large is closer to 49lbs i think.   So plop those puppies inside and weigh it up.  or just tape 4 together in a cube.
