Thread resurrection! 


They gave me a hard time today @ UPS... "oh mY!, that has to be professionally packaged! We can't ship it like that..." $45 + the cost of shipping...   lol..... sure thing ma'aam, I know a guy who's a licensed super-duper-sergeant-major-packager that will do it for free... Be back tomorrow... :D   We'll see if it flys...

Greyhound will ship up to one hundred and as stated above UPS up to 150lbs. If you make a handle out of rope around the horn and thru the hardy UPS will take it at least they have for me.

I just taped a label on cardboard on the face, they stuck their stickers on that

Successfully shipped; My anvil needed to be boxed according to UPS standards... At the very least a double wall thick box (wont work ;)... I went triple wall; 1 single wall box packed tightly with some outside strapping tape placed into> double wall box with exuberant amounts of strapping tape/ packing tape...


Standards with UPS are different everywhere, depending on whom your dealing with apparently... I've heard several times throughout the forum about shipping an anvil with a protective layer over the face and the horn only... In my specific case, this was entirely not the case... 



Thanks Fatfudd,


I felt it was a bit silly making a new thread on the matter, this is the numero 1 pinged thread on google, in regards to shipping and anvil...
