I forgot the name of the place I saw that ships that type of thing, it'* considered freight, but it is VERY costly.

UPS FREIGHT will do it, but expect 200 bucks minimum for charges

i can never remember. which ones are the guys in brown?

anyhow i had a 69 mercury marauder i cut up for parts and shipped all over canada and the states thru them. that included items like bumpers, trunk lid etc. the thing i found with the bigger items, at least with the guy here, was i did my own packaging and that seemed to make a difference. it did mean i couldn't get insurance as they didn't package it but at least they shipped it. also cut the price way down as i remember too!

UPS are the brown guys.

The last big items I shipped were two front seats from a previous car. That was the last time I ever shipped something that large.

There'* always Land Air Freight, aka Express Air. They ship large items properly palleted and brought to the local place (usually airport).

I've heard Greyhound taking stuff on their busses.. One guy told me he shipped the entire rear clip of a fiero.

This is why when someone on the club is looking for large pieces like this.. usually it'* not worth it due to shipping costs.

I'm the guy he supposedly shipped the hood to. It'* been three months and I haven't recieved the hood. He stopped replying to my private messages on here, and won't return my phone calls. BUYERS BEWARE of dragon62243!
