Hi, welcome back to Just Answer and thanks for your question!

After using the UPS calculation device I have come up with a figure that totals $169.04 for ground shipping dropped off at a UPS store location with the zip code you provided and dropped off at a residential address at the latter zip code provided. Just for example purposes I made each package 24"x24"x24", 30 pounds and $600 declared value to come up with the totals you provided. I also included delivery confirmation with signature required (because of value). Fuel charges, delivery confirmation and declared value add about $30 total to the shipping. Now, what would decrease this total figure by quite a bit is by having smaller boxes. I'm not sure what exactly you're shipping, but if you could use significantly smaller boxes than 2' square you would reduce the price. I also tried a 12" square box and got a total figure (including above additions) of $105.62. I hope this gives you a rough figure to go by. Of course, once you have the items at the UPS store they'll be able to give exact figures for each box. Best regards!
