shipping a crank

What's the best way to ship a crankshaft? I checked the overhead bin on the plane and I don't think it can take the wt. Lol

btw, it's a Eagle 460 crank.

Everyone probably has their horror stories however,
FedEx, UPS or USPS all do a decent job IF it is packaged sturdy enough correctly.

that crank is likely to be 80-83lbs. Fedex or UPS wold be the best bet. USP will not take anything over 60lbs here.

I must be getting old as it felt a lot heavier. I have the original box so maybe I'll double box it to ensure it doesn't come out the end. I just didn't know if I needed a wooden crate the way ups smashes the heck out of everything.

The last crank I shipped, I built a crate/enclosure from 3/4" plywood and covered it in cardboard. I used UPS and it made the 2000+ mile trip, undamaged and in one piece.

It didn't cost "me" anything. It did the buyer though.  Laughing 

To be honest,....It's been a few years and I can't remember.
