    Question Size of TiLite shipping box?

    I'm selling my ZRA series 1, and am trying to calculate the shipping cost. The box is in the basement (which has only outside access), and New England is in the middle of a scary (if you believe the TV weathermen) snow storm - so I can't get down there. The shipping is calculated by dimensions rather than weight. Does anyone have the measurements?

    i think it's about 24x24x24

    i just shipped my chair and got this size box at the ups store for $12. shipping it from cali to texas cost me ~$50

    my frame is 18x18, so, if yours is smaller, you may be able to get a smaller box and save some money. i almost got mine in a 22x22x22.

    hope that helps

    fuente, UPS goes by total dimension of the box, and just changing the length by a couple of inches makes a difference. I've tried a few combinations and get between $140 and $200. So you may be close, but I can't charge $200 if it comes out $30 or $40 less.

    I sent one that I previously bought from Curt Leatherbe, one of your old one's I believe Donno, to Florida from Washington state. It was 156.00 if I remember right. I'm sure Tilite could answer that question.

    Duh, thanks Patrick - I'll give them a call. I finally got a ZRA that fits right. I paid about $750, and ate $200 or so on the two that didn't work out so at less than a grand I think I'm ahead.

    FYI, a TiLite rigid chair ships in a 33"x23"x25" box and a folding is 41"x13"x31".
