My advice is to take your "please help" out of your title. Refer to the posting guidelines for further details, I don't want to see you get your topic locked up, if that happens, you won't get any help...

UPS will ship it it just needs to be in an oversized box, and you will pay for dimentional weight as opposed to actual weight. Ask about freight shipping, Mailbox's ETC should have mentioned that to you, bad service. Try airborn express too.

You people use rip off shippers. I paid 9 dollars to ship back a defective OEM side skirt from Cleveland to KC. UPS. Mail boxes etc is a RIP OFF. Go to the place where the UPS trucks are at, or fed ex, etc. If you go to someone else, 50%+ of what you pay is goin into their pocket. It only cost me 75 bux to ship 4 rims and tires across the country- so there is no reason it should be $200 for a 10 pound bumper. Don't mean to be rude, but think- they hire a 5 buck an hour dude at MBE and there is no way he knows what all UPS ships. (They ship CT scanners for where I work around the world, and a bumper is way less) :)

Wow I didn't know you could use greyhound to ship things. Do you have to pick the packages up at a Greyhound Station?

go greyhound or goto the airport... Greyhound has excellent service and are very cost effective.. the stored a package for me till I could go pick it up.. I ship full kits from CA to NY in 4 days for like 70$ ... or you could ship it freight, it's about 80% more expensive than greyhound but they deliver it to your door.
