    Hey TW.
    I'm always scouring the buy and sell forums, and I was wondering how people ship.. They always say they will ship, but never how. :mad:
    So what's everyones favorite/cheapest shipping service for a variety of things.. Lets say tires and wheels, a grill, skid plates, bull bar?, toolboxes/bed boxes. Feel free to chime in with other products. (Not looking for small items)

    Personal experience, and price if you want would be great too!

    I'm looking for a toolbox, but I have no idea how I would get it shipped. Sort of why I am starting this.

    Thanks!

    Had tons on the Taco's.... new truck is pretty stock
    Fedex always does me well. I ship with them all the time.
    For my bumpers/sliders/etc I use Fastenal freight as well. Most people dont know they'll ship large items, but they do and they have great rates. Just takes a while.

    It depends.....

    When I have a large item to ship, I will research all the shipping companies to see which is cheaper. USPS, UPS, Fed Ex, DHL....

    It's been a while, but if you know the approximate weight and overall size of the container....you can get estimates on the websites.
