    Hello all!

    Here are some good guidelines to help estimate your shipping weights when you don't have access to a scale. These are based on averages using 1/4 inch thickness.

    48x40 standard shipping pallet is about 40 lbs
    36x36x36 standard shipping crate is about 125 lbs.
    48x48x48 standard shipping crate is about 200 lbs.
    24x24x30 standard shipping crate is about 80 lbs.
    48x40x42 standard shipping crate is about 175 lbs.

    Don't guess your weight. You could get hammered by the carrier after the fact. These guidelines are NOT exacts but they will keep you out of deep water fees.
