For larger shipments and complete kits, I use a professional crating service. You pay only what they charge me and when you receive your shipment you will better appreciate the cost of professional crating, the work that went into it, and the protection it provides.
Crating for body parts runs from $60 to $295 depending upon the items ordered. Hoods and quarter panels may be shipped in reclaimed packaging in order to save you the cost of custom crating. In this case the crating or packaging charge reflects the time and expense required to obtain the packaging and properly pack your order.
