Default Shipping carrier for oversized package

i tried searching first, but did not come across any threads about it.

Does anyone have a recommendation or experience on a shipping carrier for oversized package (lip kit)?

i did a quick google and discovered transit systems ( http://www.transitsystems.com/ppc_ship_auto_parts/ ) but never heard of anyone using it.

any rec or guidance is appreciated. thanks in advance.

Lots of people use greyhound when it comes to this sort of thing.

Greyhound handles a lot of oversized freight for a nominal cost. Optionally, you might consider air freight - again, if there's a terminal near you. I've used both for shipping rather delicate electronics and have had great service. Either way, talk to someone at your local terminal for advice on packing something as fragile as a lip kit.

I've received a rear lip by greyhound.
I've shipped side skirts by USPS before. If it's in a box... or somewhat protected, they'll ship it.
