Not sure why your shipping charges are different; the calculators here access the UPS and Fedex sites, I believe. Packing floor-standing speakers is difficult w/o orig boxes. Make sure that you are getting quotes for each box and then multiplying x 2. You may need to get an accurate quote by bringing them to the shipper in advance. And be aware that retail UPS and Fedex vendors may charge more than using the counter at your nearby UPS or Fedex station. Make sure you insure, but DO NOT expect that shippers will step up and pay claims unless they are forced to. That is one advantage of the UPS store; most offer their own insurance if they packed it. Expensive, but potentially worth it. Good Luck.
