What is the best way of going about shipping a rearend. And how do you ship stuff do you just take it to ups and they take care of it or do you box it and then drop it off for shipping?

foward air. It would cost you a fortune to do it with UPS!!!


find the closest foward air terminal, the receiver will have to pick it up at the closest one to them.

Also you have to crate it up, make sure its forklift compatable :crazy:

For a rearend just put it on a pallet and strap it down good and solid. Then load it in the back of your truck and take it to a shipping dock of your choice, they will fill out the paper work, give you a bill, you give them money, and they will throw the pallet into a truck headed to the destination. UPS won't ship something that large or heavy.

Any freight company will ship it, it's up to you to find the cheapest place.

You do not need a crate, you only need a pallet. Go to Home Depot or some other place and find one in the dumpster that is big enough and tie the axle to it with some cheap rope nice and tight.

I went to that sight and got a price, and it said 175. And what does class mean, and does anyone now if they'll ship to a persons house.
