Question Shipping vehicle front seats, advice needed!?

I am trying to deliver two front seats, each weight around 60 pounds as they are all electronics.

What is the best way to ship them out? Do I need a crate for such heavy items?

People have mentioned to deliver them via moving companies/ carriers, but have no clue.

Make a frame and send using Greyhound. It'll be the cheapest and quickest.

Well, so far it is 300 dollars to Puerto Rico.

A buddy has a Supra with motorized seats. Car was stolen and only thing they took was the seats.

Most companies stop forwarding the calls once I mention overseas delivery.

Thanks for the info, will keep on searching...

In all seriousness, have you considered the post office?

I threw some random numbers at the USPS website, and it quoted me $97 each to Hato Rey with about two weeks' transit time. (I used Cincinnati as the point of origin, as I'm not sure exactly where your trailer is parked.)

Just wrap the seat in cardboard- no need for a "box" proper.
