If your using UPS, go heavy (15#). Dimensional weight mainly.

I must have superman strength cause I can hold a front fender up with my pinky. 15# is no where near the weight of a front fender. I just weighed 1 at 3# 9.6oz's round up to 4. Wrapped in bubble wrap... 5#'s

Measurements wrapped are in the ballpark of 51X29X10 and that's wrapped thick. You could also cut up cardboard and just tape it around the part for measurements around 50X27X8

I tried to ship a fender, but because the length of the box needed the shipping was more than I was selling the fender for.


I'm curious to know what you come up with.

Thats common with larger stuff.
You can box it measure it and get an estimate from Fedex, or UPS online or call them. Its should be somewhat accurate.

yup, sometimes the size will set the shipping weight. It is not ideal, but that is what they do.

It used to be with Fed Ex, that if you shipped multiple packages on one air bill, they went by weight, not size. Great for shipping body parts! I don't think they do that anymore, but you could ask. (BTW, the second box could be empty... and small).

Yeah about 4# sounds right, maybe 5# with aero. So 15# would be heavier than 5#, right?
On large dimension items, UPS (don't know about other shippers but ex-wife worked for UPS) goes by dimensions. A 24" cube has a minimum cost to ship. They don't go by strictly weight.
When you get estimate, play with weight, see if there is a difference and let us know, if you don't mind.

I used to sell a lot on Ebay and Craigslist. The size or weight always killed me. I sold lots of stuff I lost money on selling because of the shipping. Now I ONLY sell heavy or bulky items local pick up only. Ive even bought things myself that I wanted to return and the cost was higher than keeping the item and throwing it away.

I tried boxing up a fender a few years ago. The box turned out rather large. UPS wanted $80 IIRC within the US. I think bubble wrap and Greyhound might be an option. I am just worried about it getting damaged. First thing first is I need to find out how much it will cost just to ship it...

Greyhound is stepping up in the shipping game and I was told they will soon have digital tracking in place. IDK what soon means but it is what the station manager told me last time I shipped with them. I shipped a cradle to NY. Cost $80 IIRC.

edit..dang typos

Last time I looked Greyhound was the best option for oversized body parts. Otherwise I would only bubble wrap the fender such that it's not in a huge box.
