Maybe a bicycle box? If it's too big you could trim it to fit.

They're not THAT big. Bubble wrap, some foam padding and a good sized box. If its going to be a ridiculous price to ship, ship greyhound. Seriously, drop it off at a Greyhound terminal, they put in on a bus going that way anyway and then you pick it up when it arrives. Very cheap way to ship big items and reliable. Lots of ppl don't know about it though.

Wrap them extremely well and insure the piss out of em. Are you having the glass shipped as well? That's the expensive part.

I'm looking right at my sail panels right now and they are not big enough to where you should have an issue shipping them. USPS will ship packages that size so if the $$$ is the holdup then I dunno what to tell you except it costs a lot more to ship stuff these days.
