Is there a freight Forwarder who delivers to St. John or St. Thomas? Need to ship a microwave which us a tad too big for USPS?

Is it something you already own? Or buying? You could buy from Lowe's, Wal-mart, etc and have it shipped. I had larger items shipped down for free via their websites. Just a thought.

USPS ships up to 70lbs. Must be a big microwave to be over that. In any case you will need to ship to the freight forwarder first. I think FedEx and UPS have 70lb limit also?

FedEx is 150 pounds. Takes a lot longer to get here though, as some of my fedex stuff took 3+ weeks.
