    Has anyone shipped airbags? If so how did you do it? I've gone to UPS have gone to FedEx and I've gone to the u.s. mail it's either not possible or you have to have a special certification to ship it.

    Explosives aren't popular items with shipping companies. I'd stay local only with something like that.

    I suppose you could find a private shipper with the necessary certificate but the added cost seems like it would price you out of sellers more local to the buyer. Which is why I'd stay local, it might take longer t sell but it would eventually.

    You need burst proof packaging and labeling. Might as well disclose contents and any item tags (Maker, Serial Numbers, Item Numbers...).

    When shipping, it needs to be made known it's a hazardous item. Sometimes listed as a pyro item.

    I'd just take it to a UPS Store. Not a third party. Maybe even see if you can make a label online.

    I have never shipped an airbag. When I do ship things I use pirate ship to get a USPS quote by weight, pay, print the label, tape it to the box, and drop it in the mailbox
