Shipping Methods for large components

Hey, I got some people looking for items such as my hood and fender, radiator and front bumper support. Has anyone ever shipped items like this before? if so, which method did you use?

What do you guys think itll cost me to ship those itemz about 8oo miles from me?

Any help would be appreciated as I have always wondered how it worked. Thanks

UPS all the way. I haven't shipped car parts, but I've shipped some massive server parts.

Re: Shipping Methods for large components

Weight isn't a factor as much as dimensions.

You can't ship a BB6 hood UPS/FedEx/DHL you can only use their freight divisions or a different freight company.

The typical maximum largest dimension is 80 inches. If you item (including packaging) is over 80 inches you can't send it through a common carrier.

For sensitive items like the hood and fender I would pay your salvage people extra to have it professionally packed at a shipping store. The bumper support doesnt need excessive packing. They could just wrap it in stretch wrap and send it on its way. The radiator should be packed carefully but I think a normal person would be able to pack it.
