Default Shipping a Motor

I am getting ready to ship my motor to PQ for their upgrade. Not sure how to pack the motor for shipping. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I just brought mine to UPS and they packed and shipped. Cost me $14 if I remember right for packing and shipping was around $45. I live in New England.

When I received it back... it was in there purple box with tons of paper and cardboard especially made to keep the spline and electrical wire protected from being damaged.

Good idea. I have a UPS store not too far away that I could use.
Thanks!

Great Idea!
However, I am not sure I would trust the USPS to get it there safely and still in an intact box!
UPS sounds like a better idea. Cost is not my primary concern.

It does not fit in the one rate boxes I tried.

I got a HD box from Uhaul 12 x 12 x 18. I cut heavy styrofoam for ends & sides. I wrapped motor in small bubble, bubble wrap and made extra cardboard protection around lugs.

I shipped UPS. Cost $38 to ship.

Also I have heard about folks getting the motor company to ship an empty motor box. These usually had a molded blown in foam packing.

I would recommend checking with fed ex also. I have recently learned that fed ex is way cheaper than ups for shipping larger packages. Ie, I've been shipping 1/5 scale rc cars, they weigh around 35 pounds, in a box that measures 30x24x18 inches, ups was costing me around $55.00 fed ex was $22.00

That is a BIG difference! The motor weighs about 48# before packing materials, so it is in the ballpark of your experience.

Thanks for the info.
I think I will price both.
