Default How to ship a lower end from an atv engine?

Some guy might buy my lower end from the atv i bought, So i am wondering what is the best way to ship it? Can i get away with a thick card board box or do i have to get a crate like thing? Also which shipping service is best for something like this? Can i get a flat rate thing to send it?

I know it weighs atleast over 30 pounds, not sure how much tho.. Its from a yamaha blaster, complete bottom end.. Ill try and get it weighed but im just wondering about how and what service i should use for this?

It's the weight thing that will be the cost, UPS, FED-X, USPO, all charge by weight, plus a fuel sur charge now, plus where it will be shipped to. I have sent dirt bike cylinders for around $20, guessing you'll be in the $60 range

Thansk.. I checked out prices on UPS.com and it seems they might be the way to go. I checked ebay for the same items and they shipped anywhere from 20 to 60 bucks.. UPS should cost me around 25 or less.. Maybe about 30 bucks. If i am close in the 50 pound range, I checked for 50 pounds and it was about 21 i think. So thats not too bad.. I wish i started using UPS before, The post office costs way too much for stuff that weighs anything.. Ill prolly use UPS from now on haha..

Nice! I almost forgot about that!

I had to ship a lower end of a dirt bike motor a few years ago and all I did was find a good sturdy cardboard box. I then cut a piece of plywood to fit into the botton of the box. I bolted the lower end to the plywood and placed it in the box. Then crumpled up news paper and packed it all around the lower end to stop all movement and it worked great! It cost about $100 to ship but that was through Canadian Post!

Well i got it in the smallest box i think i could get away with using. It was two boxes together, They overlapped to make it stronger and just a little taller, I used some like 2 inch styrofoam for bottom and two sides and some thinner sytrofoam on other sides, I brought it to quote while i dropped some other things off to ship and they said 21 bucks. Holy shit thats a good price for an over 40 pound package haha. The box is nice and sturdy too.. So i hope its OK during shipping. I dont see why not tho..
