What is the best way to safely send a large check by mail?
Probably FedEx or UPS and require signature upon delivery. Of course, the safest way would be to wire transfer the amount directly from your bank account to the recipient's, assuming he/she has one.
Good luck and I hope this helps!
Have you checked into wiring the money to the person? Most banks and credit unions offer this service for a small fee if within the US. This takes away the worry of a check in the mail. Otherwise I would send it certified mail with a signature required at delivery. Or you could see what service Fed Ex or similar services offer. Do not send a personal check but rather a cashiers check. This protects your account if the check is lost/stolen and it should streamline the availability of the check's funds to the recipient.
