I am looking for a new way to ship my large parts cheaply. I used to have greyhound, but they have moved and no longer ship packages. please let me know how I can ship these parts cheaply with some other carrier, thanks!

I have one across town, but have never used them. are they as cheap as greyhound?

Ups isnít all that expensive either and is sometimes a few dollars cheaper than greyhound. I shipped a bumper from DC to St. Louis and it was like $90 using UPS and it includes tracking and door to door service.

thanks I will check that out. I never use UPS. Usually they are more expensive, but for big stuff they might work out okay. thanks!

Watch out!!! Fastenall has divided the country into 2 "Zones" , West and East- no shipping between zones. Greyhound has canceled a large number of terminals accepting packages and things are moving very,very slowly due to reduced service. UPS will just kill you on anything not a rectangular BOX, ignore damage claims, and destroy what you ship.

No cheap options anymore

Leave it to the Buyer to find a suitable
shipper - same thing works for vehicles.

Most folks think with their wallet.

They will blame you for recommending a
transport method if things fall apart.

Offer to store the parts at n/c for a reasonable
amount of time until the Buyer arranges shipping.
