Re: For those following the Shipping topic.

In case anyone else ever needs this kinda info.
Shipping (ground, Va-NY)for the bodykit was $155 bucks, including them packing it in 2 boxes & insurance.
Box was 20'x20'x80' and weighed 35lbs.
I went to Mailboxes Etc.
It was a little more than I wanted to spend, but it also didnt take all day driving from place to place and comparing prices.

Plus, the parts are finally gone!

Re: For those following the Shipping topic.

Mailboxes Etc assrapes you on the packing, AND they mark up the shipping costs. Now that they are 'The UPS Store', the markup doesn't seem to be as much, but it's still cheaper to take it to a UPS Customer Counter and ship it.

Re: For those following the Shipping topic.

Wasn't the guy that bought it in the same state? I think he may have been better off renting a pickup and driving up to get it. Would've been cheaper and he coulda had it same day
