Default Shipping most of a car interior incl. seats???

Gehs,

I am trying to sell an STI interior I've acquired but decided not to use. It includes front and rear seats, door cards and carpet.

Some brosef up in 18psi's neck of the woods has offered me a fair price for all of it. Problem is shipping such a collection of relatively large parts.

Any of you dudes ever ship something that big? What would be the easiest / cheapest / most effective way of shipping all of this stuff? Do I need to build a box and ship it freight? The amount of money the guy is offering leaves a decent cushion for shipping costs, just wondering how much of a disaster I'm getting myself into...

Any advice or input is greatly appreciated.

Just dont use freightquote.com to do it. Use freight center instead.

Pallets are the easiest and sometimes even the cheapest way to ship bulky ****.

Should I build a box on top of a pallet?

Or should I just put everything on a pallet and saran wrap it like hustler's pee-pee going into a POZ neg whole? (first try at dirty talk, sorry...)

I know it will be expensive but like I said the offer leaves a pretty good cushion for shipping costs.

So one vote for "freightcenter". Anyone else have experience with other freight shippers?
