Shipping NP231 to Vegas?

I just sold my NP231 on eBay and am wondering what is going to work best for shipping it? Think FedEx or UPS will ship it? And should I box it, or use a crate? Thanks! Any responses ASAP would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Shipping NP231 to Vegas?

Fedex has been better for me to send vehicle parts. Fedex ground is usually cheaper than UPS and I've had problems with UPS insurance. If you have a heavy walled box and stout foam packing material, that would be as good as a crate. Just drain it. You can compare prices at www.fedex.com or www.ups.com

Re: Shipping NP231 to Vegas?

Thanks for the tips. Any idea where I could get a heavy walled box? Anyone else have any tips or thoughts?

Re: Shipping NP231 to Vegas?

Call UPS, they will be able to provide an adequate box and load rated tape.

I had a AX15 shipped to me. A "75 pound" box was used. It was a heavy grade corrugated card board.

1. drain it(make sure you pack a note requesting the new owner to add the ATF.)
2. wrap it in a trash bag.
3. fill the box with peanuts.
4. make sure it is insured for $925 ( the cost of a new one from JB)

Re: Shipping NP231 to Vegas?

Jammy, use fedex. For a couple of reasons. One, they are normally cheaper. Two, i want to make sure i keep getting paychecks.

Re: Shipping NP231 to Vegas?

It'll be nice if this sale goes through. I need to get back to him sometime soon to let him know how much it'll cost. Also, I'm somewhat nervous as he has no feedback, plus was asking questions on the phone about the tcase that should of been asked BEFORE the auction ended. Oh well, I'll keep my fingers crossed. Thanks for the help?

Try freightquote.com. I bought a 305 SBC and shipped it from LA to Tempe, AZ for $90. I believe they will also quote you for boxing up the item.

Re: Shipping NP231 to Vegas?

Thanks for the tip. If I entered everything correctly, they want atleast $150 to do it. That's a little high IMHO.

Re: Shipping NP231 to Vegas?

James do you have a forward air near you? I shipped a NP241J from TN to Arizona for $42. I put it on a palet that I got from Home Depot and they banded it for me. Just checked and there is one in Seattle (how close are you to it?), and there is one on Las Vegas. http://www.forwardair.com/

Tell them it weights 80 lbs... [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
