I sold a large piece that must ship flat. It is going to Mexico.

The box is too big for USPS. What companies have people here used?

I use FedEx for most oversized items.

At that value, I'd look to something more specialized. Excalibur, maybe?

It all depends whether you are trying to insure for full value or not.

Thanks.

Not trying to insure - import duties. Want to go the crate route.

Excalibur should be able to advise re: crating services in your area.

They can also contract a courier for you.

I've had good luck receiving large flat packs from Mexico through DHL, never sent anything there.

Was going to say. I recently contacted FL regarding a shipment that wasn't to the UK and they said flat out that they couldn't provide me any value for my money. Steve is a good guy though and I would definitely recommend if shipping to the UK.
