posted a 67 z-bed today and need shipping quote from PA to los angeles

I estimated 85lbs and got a quote via greyhound for $155- but want to get exact as possible I shipped a middle seat a few years ago and it was significantly less at $100- and I didn't think the weight would be a lot different maybe greyhound prices went up anyway appreciate any help

Can you drive your bus through a truck scale, weigh it, then throw the seat on the ground and weigh again- then subtract the smaller number from the bigger?

Because a lot of us have the seat bolted in our buses right now.

borrow a bathroom scale from a friend.

If you don't have any friends, acquaintances or co-workers with a scale, maybe buy one. They are fairly cheap.

At a hardware store a bag of Quickcrete weighs 90# and bag of Playsand weighs 50# if you want to guess by comparison.

Rock quarries and metal scrapyards have track scales.
