Ok, I don't contribute much to this site (mostly ask questions) but this should save some of you guys some money. I just bought a full set of plastics from 2gk4u and had them shipped from Florida to California for less than $40.

Not bad eh?

The trick is to get all the plastics into one box. (The box mine came in was roughly 42"x20"x30") Then take it to your local Greyhound bus station. That's it. As long as you and the shipper have a Greyhound station close enough it should be pretty cheap. When it gets to the local station, you get a call telling you to come pick it up. It took my package a week and a half to arrive... just slightly longer than UPS would take and waaaaay cheaper. They only offer insurance up to $300, so take that into account with whatever you're shipping... but it's more than enough for used plastic.

Here is the Link to Greyhound's shipping service.

just be prepared tracking sucks its sort of a get there when it gets there type of thing. if they don;t have room for a ginormous box on the bus they wait for the next one.

it is the only way to not get rapped on shipping though.

True, there is no tracking unless you are a business customer with a shipping account.
