Default reputable freight shipping company

Considering getting a jdm bumper(not for a miata) from new zealand. Can
anyone recommend a good freight company? The cheaper the better as long as the parts get here. Also I will probably get it shipped by sea because it is cheaper.

Have you considered using the post office?
I'm quite serious. For things which are awkward yet lightweight, they can often be a viable option. I've no idea what the post rules are in NZ for something like a bumper, but here in the US you could literally just slap a label and a stamp on it.

Couldn't you achieve the same thing by using a sawzall to cut some rectangular holes into a standard bumper?

The stock escort bumper has a slight angle below the mounting point this bumper does not. Plus I have no experience with fiberglass and I would rather have an oem bumper.

Ah. Well, there's just no compensating for a slight angle below the mounting point. Gotta go JDM to get that.

Not saying it couldn't be done but it is not what I want and it wouldn't look good if I did the fiberglass work myself. There quite a bit more work than just cutting holes into a escort bumper to make it look right.
