I have an 88 cradle, and a few interested in shipping prices, however I don't know the weights of the cradle.
Anyone experienced with shipping a cradle?

argg.... are those measurements metric? I just called greyhound and I told them 1 item, 50lbs, 4'x4' just be safe, and the guy told me it was to big and cannot ship.

Just trying to convert the width from 1055 mm and in my head I'm coming up around 42 1/4 inches. Why crate it? Can't you just clean it and tag it?

41.5" (google "convert xx mm to inches")

and, yes. Clean it and put a label on it (securely) and FedEx will take it no problem. We ship them that way all the time.

I got the 88 stuff 5 years ago. I drove to LA and paid exactly what I'm selling it for.
