the shipping rates are devised by the size of the package and the weight. They have a weight/ volume ratio in which they say yor box should hold up to x amount of pounds and that is what you pay for as opposed to the weight of the package. as gh said go for the $53.00 option and wait a little longer. Also if you get the pacage and the carton is damaged inspect the contents right away to see if it is damaged and if it is refuse it and notify the guy your buyin it from so he can make a claim and send out a new one, otherwise you will wait weeks to get a replacement
