Shipping Running Boards?

Guys, anybody know how much it would cost to ship D110 running boards from Maine to Florida? Specifically from ECR to Orlando, FL? I have no idea what shipping/crating costs would be from one place to another...anybody bought running boards and had them shipped from ECR? Maybe there's somebody out there that has...Thanks!

Shipping running boards is actually a PITA for a 110. They're pretty long, and I think it makes them at the very least "oversized" according to FedEx etc. They're also remarkably unwieldy. I bought some from RDS when I was in CA and had to have them crated and sent Forward Air. I bought some other stuff at the same time so the crate got kinda big. Not sure what style you're looking at or how they'd box up. You really just need to get on the shipping websites and check out the size restrictions.

Jim, thanks for the heads up...I kind of figured they would be a PITA to ship...haha, that's why I wanted to see if anybody had experience with it. Kind of still wondering on the price. Here's a link to the exact ones I'm talking to Mike about at ECR:

I have no idea how much that shipping will be. And I really don't want to commit to buying them if the shipping is going to be outrageous and just ridiculous....

I think thats a good style. Just see if you can ship them via a normal carrier - you might have to pay an oversize fee, but at least the parts are a good value. If you're into them a hundred for shipping, then you've still got a decent price on running boards. No matter where you get them from, they're going to require shipping.

I can't tell how long they are but I am guessing they would fit in a bike box. I hit up my local bike shop and ask for old boxes all the time to ship stuff. They work great for long items like that. I've shipped full exhaust for Audi V8's - lot of pipes in those systems and Thule racks amongst other things.

It may or may not be cheaper and easier to put each of them in there own box. Just for a figure, I have shipped bikes down to FL from NJ for about $30-40 but that was a couple years ago and I am sure rates have gone up. Like Jim said figure $100 for shipping and if it's cheaper than that you're even better off.
