Any ship a soft top?
Which company would I use? UPS, FedEx, USPS...
How would I pack it?
I have my unlimited soft top for sale and I wouldn't mind shipping it to a fellow Jeeper but I'm not sure of the best way or what it would cost.

Not sure where this belongs. If need be, you can move it to the proper section.

Thanks, Monique.

Not 100% sure on this for everyone, but in my experience, when shipping big stuff, FedEx is usually cheaper. When I went to ship a spare tire cross-country, UPS wanted me to put it in a box, when I then went to FedEx, they took it as-is and were significantly cheaper to ship.

Just my $.02

Or go to a shipping outlet/ box store. Whichever is more convenient. I also vote for Fed-X as they "seem" to take a little better care of packages, compared to UPS.

The cheapest hands down should be USPS, they are also the slowest. They can also handle a soft top with no problem, the ORH soft tops ship from Canada to the states via USPS.

If I'm having something shipped from the US to Canada, I always prefer USPS, as they are the cheapest as far as customs is concerned.
