Packaged vs Drop Ship

So a question that comes up is which is the better deal Packaged or Drop Ship?

The answer is it depends on where you live. Shipping is a large part of most orders that come in, and I’m hoping that this will help people determine which option is better for you. Drop Ship shipping changes due to distance from it’s origin, if you are in the West or North East US it may be better to purchase packaged due to the flat-rate shipping.

Below the chart is a map (or chart for Canada) to let you know what shipping zone you are in.
