HOLY CRAP!

This ends too soon for the regular ebay alert thread....


LOOK AT THE SHIPPING FOR THIS! My neighbor drives a truck O/O, and gets less than this for a 4 ft. high pallet, of MORE weight.

There is over 300 lb. of goods there.

$160. to pack and ship it all is a fair price.

I recently shipped two caliper cores with Fedex ground. 36 lb. cost $21.00.

I think you need to get with the program with regard to what these guys are getting for LTL shipments.

You can fit two brake calipers in a large flat rate USPS box....costs $9-10.

That auction is pretty tempting!

wow! There's some real goodies in there! I'll be watching this one. If the bid doesn't go through the roof, I may throw my hat into the ring.

It also says it will be shipped in multiple packages, and that it will cost $160 to ship it.

It also says local pickup is ok so you could probably arrange for your own shipping
