Amazon is the first stop for many when it comes to normal items like diapers, books, and a whole lot of other household items. It is not surprising however that you can buy some wild items on Amazon, but it is a little shocking that many heavy items that you can’t ordinarily imagine will fit in a box, can be delivered to your doorstep.
The move by Amazon to start shipping really heavy items is an attempt to ease its way into the freight business and all indications point towards the fact that the attempt will soon become a reality and a big one at that.
It’s impossible to say how much it costs Amazon to ship these large items because it depends on where you reside and which warehouse houses the item. However, the company’s entry into the freight market is likely made easier by reducing delivery costs, particularly on orders like these.
Here’s a list of the heaviest items you can purchase and get shipped from Amazon;
1. 2,550-LB Wide-Belt Sander
This broad-belt sander is designed for enterprises that create tables or custom doors that are up to 43 inches wide.
When working with various types of hardwood, the adjustable platen and variable speed conveyor provide unmatched control over final sanding results.
This workhorse is jam-packed with tried-and-true features that dependably produce excellent workpiece finishes. It has an adjustable felt platen and graphite slip for more sensitive sanding operations, as well as a variable speed conveyor.
The variable speed conveyor is essential for attaining the optimum sanding results on diverse wood types. The ability to change the conveyor speed from 16 to 60 feet per minute allows for better soft and hardwood finishes. The feed belt motor is connected to a speed control that enables easy speed changes.

3. JET 26×80 Geared Head Engine Lathe 4-1/8-inch Bore

This 3.35-ton Jet Geared Head Engine Lathe is available on Amazon, with free shipping. It comes from a third-party seller that requires someone to be home to sign for it.

4. Nissan Versa Note
Although you can no longer buy a Nissan Versa Note on Amazon and have it delivered for free, one guy was able to do so in 2014 when Amazon worked with Nissan.
In a prank marketing attempt, Amazon delivered one of the cars for free to 28 people who ordered the automobile for the promotion.
Amazon videotaped the delivery, which neighbors observed and photographed. Those who ordered the car also received a $1,000 credit toward Amazon shopping, allowing them to load it with whatever Amazon items they wanted.
5. Olympic Weight Set
The USA Sports 300-pound Olympic Weight Set includes the Olympic 7-foot black bar with spring collars, as well as 300 pounds of weights.
It could be difficult to even get this weight set inside your home: Carriers may not be able to transport the set to the front door, according to the product description, because it weighs more than 300 pounds.
