I realize this is not the place for it but i need a fast answer. I just ran down to UPS and they wanted 90.64 cents to ship a set of 250r plastics. What company have you used and how much was it? In a box or wrapped in plastic? I know I've gotten a complete set shipped to me for like 30 dollars I just dont know who shipped them

I sold a full set of 400ex Maier race cut plastic (including seat attacthed to rear plastic) shipped to CA. I used two smaller boxes to make one big box (47"X40"X19"). My post office said the box was too big for them and that I had to use UPS or Fedex . Plastic fit tight and it cost about $90 bucks through Fedex!... Also Fedex wouldn't let me even ship it without making sure the box was just about perfect! and making sure ALL edges were double taped! Maybe That Fedex guy was having a bad day or something OR just an ***! but I'm glad the buyer paid for shipping!
A few months later> I had some plastic shipped to me... that was in trash bags with a flat piece of cardboard WRAPPED around them and Barely taped together like a taco!. :ermm: (what ever works, I guess). I can't remember who they used to ship them to me, but it had to save them time & money..??Probably UPS?Hope this helps.

Ups was 104 dollars to ship a fullset of 400ex fenders.
Same size box and weight was 20 dollars through DHL.

They dont measure size. Either its too big or they will take it. All the do is take the weight.
