What is the best company / way to ship 6 large boxes (under 70 lbs.) to US?

My parents just shipped a 60lb box that's (I think) about 36x24x24 for $60 using USPS. He tried to do it online in the states but it quotes $300, he went into a post office and they charged $60. We use the mail place by subway in TuTu and like it.

When I moved out of STX I used both a shipping company and the USPS... USPS was cheaper and faster... Your boxes are not heavy (the limit is 70 lbs with them) and I think those dimensions are OK...

When sending packages via USPS to or from the USVI, be sure to add Delivery Confirmation and/or insurance. Otherwise it has a good chance of getting pilfered en route.

Rowdy802, who did you use for shipping larger items to the states? Looking for suggestions for shipping a family keepsake to a stateside address.

Thanks
