Shipping Fairings

I remember reading this somewhere on this board I think, who should I use to ship out my fairing set? UPS/DHL? I heard DHL doesn't charge an arm and a leg to ship over sized boxes, last time I tried shipping a fairing via UPS it was like $98.

Also where can I get boxes/supplies big enough to ship out my fairings/gas tank/tail/etc. Was gonna check at the storage place over here by my house, wonder if theres any place cheaper.

I was thinking of putting the tail/fender/front fairing in one box, L/R fairings in another, and maybe the gas tank alone, not really sure



Selling my complete set via eBay and based on how many watchers/messages ive received im fairly certain it will sell, so I need to make some arrangements prior so I can ship em out.

NESBA - Seems to be missing, can someone direct me where to find it?

What size box did you use that you fit everything in there , I think I read it on the nesba boards actually, FEDex changed their shipping size calculations for 2007, so shipping fairings is a pain in the ass now.

I used the same box the skins came in, and I just shipped them this month. Also, it might be of note that they only had to go 200-something miles.

I heard Greyhound will get your stuff to a city relatively cheaply, if it is not too inconvenient for your buyer to pick it up at a bus station, should be able to send them for $40ish
