Not sure depends on your location, it was what EBAY came up with as an estimate. I’m in Oregon so it would be cheaper to California than New York or Florida.

Generally postage is based on volume as well as weight (someone will pick me up on the term......)
Freight rather than normal postage carriers will be less....

Yeah... i was too lazy to google it.."cubed weight"..
Another example of high shipping costs are original seats with metal pans....heavy and bulky

I've worked in that industry.

Theoretical package - 25 x 30 x 45 cm = 33,750. Price will be calculated from this number using a table and the weight.

Since it once contained a flammable/explosive substance it may not be able to be sent by mail and indeed might require hazardous material shipping at a premium cost.
