Cheap shipping Boxes Canada
The entire world’s manufacturing industries are dependent on the cardboard box industry. Cheap boxes are hard to find, and boxes are inherently expensive to ship, because of their cubic size. That’s why you often find box manufacturers near industrial areas.
Shipping companies generally charge customers based on these 7 factors:6) The Actual Weight of the box7) The Volumetric “Weight” of the box
whichever is higher)
Shipping companies will also add a levy for an increase in fuel prices but seldom reduce those prices when fuel costs go down.
Small businesses are often quite shocked to discover that shipping across Canada is often MORE expensive by Canada Post than it can be to ship to the southern United States! Once a shipment reaches the border, Canada Post will hand it off to the United States Postal Service to be delivered to its destination in the US.
Since America has ten times the population of Canada, they have a larger postal system that has cheap shipping rates due to volume and greater infrastructure. The result is that shipping across the US can be half price (or less) of what it costs Canadians to ship to the States. This makes it more difficult for small-mid-sizes Canadian companies to compete with their U.S. counterparts.

Snakes are really difficult.
I'm not sure who will even ship them. I use DHL, and I know they won't. You can use Delta Dash, which is airport-to-airport and very safe, but you'd have to look up the requirements for it (not cheap, either).
I put the tortoise in a sock and tie the end shut (mind you, these guys are only 30-40g), then pack it in a tupperware container with packing peanuts around it. That goes in a small cardboard box with more peanuts, and then that goes in a larger box (12 x 12 x 8) with more peanuts.
