    best way to ship a hood?

    hey fellas!
    I bought a ws6 hood from neodamonkey from another site and hes having trouble shipping it, he says they charge 880.00 o ship it from Houston Texas to LA California. The plan was to ship it to the dealership who is going to paint it but if theres a standard way people ship these we could use a little help. Does Greyhound do parcel post?
    Thanks

    Greyhound won;t ship something that size, something that size has to go truck frieght and must be packed solid. UPS might ship it, also check other shippers and see what they say. Commercial carriers my have a better deal seeing as that most of thr frieght they carry is large not parcels.

    I know, I have no idea who that quote came from. It hasto be he just doesnt want to comeoutta pocket for shipping, I paid 250.00 for shipping so 1035.00 all together.A refunds fine if he cant figure it out but I really want that hood.

    If you notice most people selling hoods on e-bay state truck freight, payable as COD. I see most run about 100-200 depending on distance and residential vs business.

    There is a seller on ebay that claims to ship hoods via UPS. Just for a search for hoods and you will see what I mean.

    I remember an ebay seller not that long ago that sold an SS hood, shipped it UPS, so i would think UPS is possible.

    good luck.
