I offered to ship a bass to Norway, I am having some difficulty finding a reasonable method. I estimated the package will be 30lbs and 54"x24"x8", wrapping the HSC in bubble wrap and putting it inside a cardboard box. Online estimates from DHL and FedEx are both around $500. USPS won't ship it, they say it's too big, although elsewhere on their site they say they'll ship up to 60" long. I'm going to take it to the UPS store tomorrow to see if they can help. Any suggestions? I have seen several posts on guitar forums that say they have shipped guitars for $100-$200. Thanks!
