Hood shipping

Have any of you guys ever shipped a hood? I'm needing to ship it to a guy who wants to buy it but I wanna get an idea of shipping cost. It's a stock 04 GT hood


04 GT: CAI, 3.73, Longtubes, Full exhaust, Comp Cams 270's, Short throw, Pullies, BBK 73mm TB, MSD coils, 47lb injectors, MPT tuned, Steeda lowering springs, Front strut bar, MM caster camber plates and the list goes on.

Around 7-8 years ago I was selling a hood off my trans am and got a shipping quote of 4-500 which was more then I was trying to get for the hood. I ended up just holding on to it for a while and selling locally.

you have to ask someone who ships. Hint if both parties have a commercial address (work?) it'll be cheaper. Note that ain't cheap, just cheaper. it's bigger than a pallet so they are gonna charge you accordingly

Definitely try to go business to business to save money if possible. Your really going to have to reinforce the thing in box to. I bet you spend 30 just in 1x2's and cardboard. Weigh the thing, add 10 lbs and measure it adding 6 inches each direction. that should get you pretty close I think

Talk with companies like greyhound. They should be able to get you a quote


04 GT

I will guess it'll be more than the value of the hood

Many years ago I bought a hood from another member on the site. He offered to reduce the price since I was driving to get it (Wisconsin to Iowa).

A hood most likely falls under freight charges which is not cheap. Best stick with a local sale or knock off some money if he's willing to come pick it up.

When I bought my rear louvers, they shipped from Wichita to Omaha on Greyhound. I don't remember the cost. They weren't packed in any way and did not get broken, so I guess they treat things halfway right

Sell it locally. Shipping will cost more than its worth and will be a complete pain in the nuts on your end.
