    I am selling some large items, and a guy a few states away has offered to buy the hatch off the GSR that I am parting out. I really want to sell the thing, but I have no clue how to ship it. Anyone have any suggestions. The thing is so heavy and big, I dont even think that I would be able to put it in my moms Honda Element to get it to fedex or UPS somewhere like that.

    Greyhound shipping was looking good at $80 until I read that they are not reliable for broken automotive windsheilds (glass hatch)

    well he offered me 450 shipped and I want about 300 for the hatch plus shipping. So the cheaper I find shipping, the more money in my pocket.

    also, if you ship to a business address its cheaper...

    And if you ship freight, its cheaper if you ship to a business with a dock.

    fedex will pick up at your house.

    get an account.
    print the label
    wait for truck at scheduled time frame
    put on truck
    no worries on your end.

    fedex.com
