I need to ship big & heavy box, what's next?

I need to ship a 90 x 80 x 80 cm / 100lbs (50kg) box to Canada and another one to USA.

Usually, I go through Canadapost's website and do my quotes but this time, the website says I exceed the maximum weight AND size.. So i'm not sure what to do. Is there a known and affordable alternative or can I still go with Canadapost somehow?

Thanks

We ship stuff that size via UPS all the time. It's expensive, I think $600-$700 to get it there next day. The contents of the package are in the mid 5 figure range though so shipping isn't really that expensive relative to what's in the package.

Look at freight shipping options.

FedEx if you can secure a good rate, Peace of mind Couriers if its local for freight, also cardinal couriers.
