Call a Greyhound bus depot and ask them as it is quite a bit cheaper.

These. I shipped my OEM front and rear bumper on separate occassions and they were in the $50-$60 range. Go to their site and you can enter the box dimensions and weight and it will calculate the postage for you. http://www.shipgreyhound.com/

I think it took about 36 hours for the one I sent from NC to TX.

I went to a local body shop and asked if they had any large boxes that they were throwing away. The first one that I went to told me I could have anything at the dumpster that I wanted. I have heard people had luck at places that sell appliances as well.
