Best way to ship large cab?

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Intune, Feb 14, 2006.


  1. I have found a Berg NV215 that I want. :hyper: What is the best way for it to make the journey from New England to TN? Have him take it to a UPS store, box it up nice & ship? Have a trucking co. come by and pick it up? Greyhound bus? Thanks all.

    If you value that cab, anything but Fed-Ex. :spit:

    I have had good luck with both UPS and Fedex.
    UPS store will charge about 95 bucks to pack and ship a cab,
    it's a lot cheaper if the seller does the packing.

    Go raid the Guitar Center Dumpster. Ask the manager if you
    can if they are weird about it.

    And, double box it too.

    ...'cuz with either one, you'll be covered, and you'll have tracking & proof-of-delivery. Obviously the NV215 is too heavy for the USPS, but that's pretty risky anyway, so I apologize for even bringing them up. A truck line may be a little cheaper than either FedEx or UPS... but, as 'Thor' suggests, packing that sucker up good is the key!

    Good luck, and enjoy that cab! I've got one... and an NV425... :bassist:
