Shipping options

So I'm selling my fairings and was wondering what are some cheap ways people have found to do this. I'm going through the post office but if there are any other cheaper options that'd be awesome. And also packaging, how exactly do you pack these things, never shipped something like this before. Thanks guys!

if you're shipping across the country - see if there's a greyhound stop near you and the buyer. i shipped a full set of fairings from here to florida for about $50. just make sure you pack it well.

as far as packing it - I wrapped each fairing with plastic wrap - sandwiched the lower between the upper and the tail in teh lower - saran wrapped all that together - and then put it in a box in between lots of packing peanuts / air things / newspaper.

Attack life. It's going to kill you anyways

Yeah, I basically got nothing for my plastics because I shipped them via UPS. So, if you can do Greyhound, that's the ticket.

I hope you're not selling the ones you bought from me already!
