Best way to ship fairings

Who is the cheapest carrier for shipping fairings? I have an old hotbodies fairing box I'm shipping in.

Most carriers have an online shipping calculator you can use to estimate the cost of shipping for a particular size/weight item to a particular destination.

I had some shipped via Greyhound (the bus company) with success. It's not delivered to your door, but it's much cheaper.

I went through this a while ago. I ran quotes on all the major 3 shippers and there was no significant difference between the 3. I think they all ballparked around $90. I think I ended up with UPS.

It sometimes does matter where your shipping to though. Major cities not so much, but some of those companies have better coverage over more rural areas then the others and rural areas may pack on more cost, so you probably are better off weighing it yourself and using the shipping calculators first.
