Easier and cheaper to buy one in Orlando. SafariHP had one a few weeks ago.

I shipped one via Greyhound about three years ago. I think it was $70 Atlanta to LA. I guess it arrived in good shape. The buyer never said otherwise.
Wrapped it in bubble wrap and cardboard.

I shipped a D110 G4 roof rack from NJ to GA thru R&L trucking company. Find out where you nearest R&L is and give them a call.

I had a rear trunk lid for a VW shipped via Greyhound but it got slightly damaged so I won't use Greyhound again. Just call Greyhound for info.

Hey Cliff,

I shipped a bulkhead via Greyhound from Florida to the Northeast. I just called to verify the size limit and took it to the closet GH station. No problem and very easy. Good luck

Grey hound should take it. I'd personally want to box it in 2x4s and 1/4 plywood on top of bubble wrap. But I'm anal like that.

I took it to the local Greyhound station and sent it as freight, just like a checked bag really.
