From where to where? You can get rates from the USPS and UPS/FedEx websites, too.

You'll be paying for "dimensional weight", which is more the size than the weight. I bet you can send them coast to coast for $20-25. I sent an entire exhaust off a Roadliner last year from CT to WA for $48.

The package will be elongated, and the shipping cost will reflect those dimensions.

First, figure what size package; ie, length, width, height.

Second, obtain an approximate weight for the package.

Next, (as a previous poster stated) go to the USPS chart, UPS chart, FedEx, etc, or simply call for shipping rates.

All depends on from where to where as others have stated - so roughly $20 give or take $5.

try to keep shipping box simple...like stated above you'll be paying a dimensional rate more so than the weight so as thin as possible to keep it as small as possible...Cut a box down to the size you need or go to U-Haul and find a box that will better fit the bars...cheap enough. The actual cost will depend on from where to where but under $20 should be right..did sell an old set of bars a while back and remember it didn't cost all that much to ship.

I just shipped a windshield (21x16x7 box) to Ontario, Canada for $40 insured. FedEx was $60. $20 or less sounds right to me.
