Default Shipping

I just looking to see how you guys ship large planes. My last crate for a 75" F-16 came out to 200 lbs.

I have a fiberglass cessna I am looking to ship and would like to here about some different methods. I just need to keep the weight down below 75lbs.

Thanks, Pete

The UPS Store or a Pak Mail type of place can come up with the boxing for you, and then IMO Greyhound would be the way to go for actual shipping.
