Default pack and ship

Any suggestions on packing and shipping a nitro truck. What's the best type of packing materials to use and how much space should the vehicle have in the box to prevent it from damage? What are average costs? Do you go with UPS or USPS or FedEx?? Thanks

USPS priority is what I always use. Itís going to cost you $40-$50.

Ideal box size is slightly bigger then the vehicle to be shipped, packing materials are anything you can find, cardboard, newspaper, bubble wrap, peanuts etc. Stop by local business and ask them if they have any boxes and shipping stuff left over, also check places like walmarts etc.

Prices for shipping really depends on the weight and how far it's going. I've shipped plenty myself and usually did quotes from all three (UPS, USPS, Fedex) places once you know box dimensions and weight. I went with the lowest priced option. Sometimes one place was cheaper then the other one.

Usps priority is 2-3 days in continental us. All others are 3-6 days. I’ve had fedex get my package to my city in 2 days and then let it sit there for another 3 days waiting for the scheduled delivery day eff fedex.
