Shipping Heads
#1
Hi guys,

I need a set of 4V heads but am leery due to their weight that they can be safely shipped across the country without cracking. Does anyone have any experience with this if can be done safely or how to package etc? Very much appreciated.

The only time I did it I made small plywood crates. If I had to do it again I would use the cardboard wrap method and save some money on the shipping costs.

Make sure you take pictures of the heads before shipment and insure them adequately.

I shipped a set of 2v heads to THEJ last year. I just took cardboard and wrapped them all around each head. then duct tape. Then wrapped them a 2nd time and more duct tape. They made it with no problem at all and I used USPS to ship them. Im thinking shipping was around $75

I bought a set that were shipped to me.

Seller cut a pallet down and bolted the heads to the pallet, and then just boxed them up.

It is expensive and they are heavy. It might be cheaper to ship individually, and it might be worth looking at Greyhound or some other less common shippers.

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

I had a pair shipped from Fla. to Va. They were double wrapped in card board. Wrapped separate of course. About $75 shipping for the pair.

Coilwire shipped a set to me a few years ago in boxes with packing peanuts. The boxes were wrapped in heavy duty tape and survived. I like the wrap the heads in cardboard idea... maybe even fill the space between them and the box with expanding foam.

Whoever you buy them from have them use a mail box etc or UPS store to pack and ship them. That is how we used to send gift and other things to my grand kids. They do a great job packing stuff, they insure their packages and it's real convenient. Good luck.

I've shipped via the double cardboard box method with success via UPS.
