    UPS Ground and UPS Freight are two different things. If you can tell us how much your product weighs and give us it's rough dimensions we can tell you which you should use.


    All prepaid means is that you pay for the shipping, whether by check, money order, certified check, credit card or UPS shipper number.

    FREIGHT IN THIS INSTANCE DOES NOT MEAN USING UPS FREIGHT ... IT MEANS TRANSPORTATION CHARGES = FREIGHT.
    "freight prepaid ups ground" - freight prepaid is the billing method and UPS Ground is the service level.
    YOU CAN GO TO UPS.COM AND USING A CREDIT CARD TO PAY, "Create a Shipment" AND DROP OFF AT A THE UPS STORE (FOR NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE) OR HAND TO A DRIVER.
    sorry, caps lock was on.
    You can also schedule a pickup for $7 and UPS will come and pickup up your package(s).
    Be sure and select Declared Value equal to the amount of the value of the items in your shipment.

    To add to what Hoax said, the first $100 of declared value is paid for, no matter who the carrier is. You can also drop your prepaid return in to one of our convenient dropboxes or can bring it to your local Staples store.

    ...especially considering the sloppy appearance of the drivers and the failure to improve to UPS standards, you may be right.
