    Does anyone know how to ship car fenders. They're too big for UPS or Fedex. I'm trying to ship within CA. Any info is appreciated.

    I tape the sharp corners with some double thick cardboard and do that saran wrap type wrap on the whole thing.
    I've had better luck with UPS or FED ground.

  5. I shipped F1 Front fenders, which are freaking huge via UPS. I just shrink wrapped them, stuck a label on em and off they went.

    Greyhound is the next best idea.

    One more vote for Greyhound. Fast, Cheap and alot less strict about big stuff.

    The only downside for me is the Greyhound depo is in a baaaaad neighborhood.

  7. Used bus just last week. West coast in 72 hours for $40

    Greyhound is best & cheap for big things. I've shipped seats, hoods, deck lids, fenders, etc. Always got there in same condition I shipped it. Only downside- the buyer will have to pick it up at their local Greyhound.
  10. I have shipped 32 ford fenders with ups,the only problem is wraping them with cardboard,,what a PITA! HRP
