I tried to send one diaper this way from Alberta to Ontario and the quote from Canada Post for cheapest method was $13.80, more than the value of the diaper! It has do with crossing provincial borders or not. So if you are in BC or AB, it is only worthwhile to ship as far as Sask, because after that there is a huge price hike.

This is why all the big companies with free shipping over $x amount offers use Purolator.

But yes, PP is cheaper and greyhound may be your best bet if you have 9 dipes to ship.
