Brian ships Priority Mail. The person receiving it can simply forward it to the original purchaser in NY without any extra postal charges involved. Just make sure that it's addressed to: Your Name c/o Whoever. This is exactly what my daughter in New Jersey did a couple of weeks ago when the MacCat arrived. I had phoned the post office there to try to divert it before delivery, but they said they had to deliver it first... then it could be reconsigned. Obviously the package cannot be opened or the postal forwarding is voided.
