No, I'm not shipping a person, I 'm shipping a secretary, kinda like a very small desk. I was visiting my brother and family over the holidays in California (I'min Arkansas) and he told me I could have it. It belonged to my sister whom I loved very much. It is an antique but isn't anything special other than it belonged to my sister. Size-wize, thank of a elementary school desk, but maybe taller. What are the options for shipping something like this? Take it to a Mailboxes type store and have them pack and ship? I wonder what I should expect to pay for something like this?
