OT shipping tranny?

Hi

So...I've got a transmission and transfer case out of a Jeepster that I want to sell. The ones that offer shipping on ebay go for a lot more than those that don't.

I've seen some with shipping costs of $75 or so through UPS. Anyone have any experience with this and have any suggestions on how I would box it up or if you know of a better way to ship that type of item and how I would go about getting a quote for potential buyers?

Thanks!
Patrick

why yes, yes i am a moron

Check with your local Hardware store and see if their local trucking company an ship it for you... then simply wrap it in plastic and strap it to a pallet at the Hardware store. It's how I used to ship heavy Jeep parts. It was always the least expensive way to go...

I have shipped them via fed ex in coolers taped and screwed shut. The fed ex guy refused to unload it and ended up rolling it out into the yard. Can't hurt a T14 though...

Ya only go around once, best to enjoy it the first trip.
