Does anyone know how much UPS charge for packaging two 23 inch lcd monitors?

i don't want to take the risk of packing two lcd monitors and risk damage during transit.

Lots. They will pack them and then pack that in a box. But if they are worth it, talk to a real UPS store.

You're better off packing it yourself.

I cant see it being more than 20 dollars each.
Peanuts, airbags, boxes, and manhours.

I've sent back 24" LCD HDTV by UPS. The cost is really cheap $8 bucks. I had to put it in two boxes though. Box within a box. I had packed it myself. Don't packed two of these together. They need to be in two boxes. Shouldn't cost you no more that $16 bucks it goes by weight.

So how much will it cost the UPS Store to package the monitors for him?

I think he wanted to know how much they charge to pack, not ship.

I assume OP does not have original boxes, so I would hope that UPS will quote you on double boxing them. Best way with displays, or fragile items.

4 boxes. Bubblewrap the LCDs. Put one each into a box of packing peanuts. Take that box and put in a bigger box filled with packing peanuts. Repeat for 2nd LCD. Should have two big boxes. Likely 15lbs each. Yes?

I didn't know UPS would pack stuff. I DO KNOW they destroy your packages! And for Free!

Re: UPS packaging cost?

Go to Kinkos/FedEx Office IMO they are cheaper. UPS store charged me $12 for a box + packing peanuts for a MicroATX motherboard!!! FedEx charges about $2.25 for a box to ship a MicroATX motherboard.
