LF cheapest way to ship from GTA to Ottawa?

I don't do much shipping so for those who do more than me. Perhaps they might know this off the top of their head.

It's one golf club. approx 1lb plus the carboard box which is around 48" x 4" x 4"
We're all bozos on the bus until we find a way to express ourselves...

Failure is always an option...just not the preferred one!

You can then compare with other courier rate estimators.
Holey Moly....it comes up as $35 for regular parcel service.

If you're a Costco member, you can use a service like ShipTime and get access to discounted rates for several couriers: https://shiptime.com/costco/

I'm seeing it come up to a little less than $20 for a package of that size and weight to go from Ottawa to Toronto. Presumably it would be the same cost going in the opposite direction.

Try chitchats. They'll drop it off at CP for forwarding in Canada.

Ran a quote on ChitChat and it says $30. I think they have low rates only to the more major cities shown below.

Used it a few times during a Canada Post strike years ago.

For those who don't know, CP really jacked up their rates this year, but that sounds a little much.

I just paid $38 for a package a little larger, but weighed about 10 pounds, out to Sask. I have the Business account and it saves from a few cents to a couple bucks, at most.
