Shipping a grill

Postby Jonnyworld » Fri Feb 02, 2018 8:51 am

Who has shipped a grill? Who did you use and how did you pack it? What did it cost ballpark? I'm going to be shipping a grill from an 87 GW and is rather not damage it.

I’ve not shipped a grill but I just got a driver side window glass for my LTD and it was shiped in the expanding foam packing. It’s seems like a fail proof way to do it and could be done DIY with some sheet plastic and big gap filler expanding foam.

I have shipped a muscle grille. Is not easy or cheap. Bought a special box and used a lot of bubble wrap and foam. It was a dual wall strong cardboard box.

I wrapped it in bubble wrap then pieced together a box to contain it. Cant remember what it was to ship it but it was fairly light. Maybe around $50 but that depends on where its going.

Ive shipped doors panels and large glass before many times. Just go to a uhaul or storage unit and buy a large picture frame box. Then get a knife and clear tape and measure the grill on the box leaving 3 inches or so on each side past the grill so you can then fold the box to make flaps to close it like any other box has..

This way you custom make and shape the box to save on shipping.

Write do not stack all over it in bold letters and wrap it in dirty towels.

Ship it via USPS its alot cheaper the ups and fedex

Also costs vsry between weight and how far. I live in virginia and ive sold 4 wagoneer door panels before on ebay for 250 and put all 4 pabels in one picture cardboard box like i mentioned in my post up top.. And it went to i think nevada and shipping was 60$.

But then ive mailed 4 more wagoneer panels to georgia and shipping was like 30$

But door panels are bigger then a grill and i bet weight more too

Thanks for all the info. I have a parts car I'm going to sell what I don't need. I had someone asking about the grill.

Ive shipped 30 + grilles and mostly I build the box and line the box with 1/4" USB wood. East of the Mississippi cost approx $45 while West is a lot more. Howver, FEDEX will Package a grill in two guitar boxes [warrantied] for $40 not including shipping. So, if Im in a hurry Ill pay the $40 to have it boxed but it isnt as protect as my boxes are.

Thanks for the help guys. I was able to get some boxes from work and build a double layer box.

The guy who bought the grill also wants fenders. Any tips on shipping those. Do you box it or just strap to a pallet. There got to weigh as much as a Honda accord.

Go to auto body shops and checkout for thrown out boxes sometimes you can find a good candidate
