    Hi everybody! I have trying to see if there are companies that ship large auto parts (body Parts) for a good price? I have a hood (Im in TX) that I need shipped up North. Can anyone help me out? I dont even know if I would have to box it....or crate it or what. Or if one of the major postal carriers would ship it..

    Wardrobe boxes work well for seats. Another tip is to get a fedex account - 15% off shipments when you prepare them online.

    If you break the Seats down and box them seperate, the shipping is not bad at all through UPS.

    well I drive for fedex freight and I must say that we might be more expensive but it will get there on time and in one piece. I've worked for some other LTL carriers and let me tell you couldn't ask for better. Now before the flame war begins about how fedex screwed up my package this is for FEDEX FREIGHT not ground, express,etc. This is only my opinion and based on my experience's.
