Best way to ship golf clubs?

22 posts in this topic

Well, I just sold my set of irons and now have to figure out how to ship these things!

You guys who have sold iron sets before, how did you ship em? Where did you get the box?

Ive got 17 bucks from buyer for shipping so I'd like to keep it under that.

Thanks!

Jim

Go to a big box store, like Dick's, and see if they have any boxes leftover from clubs they've sold. They are designed especially for golf clubs, so they're the best. Maybe add some padded packing paper into the box to keep the clubs from shifting around.

That may be perfect, how much do those boxes run if you know off the top of your head?

And fedex is cheaper than UPS right?

Thanks!

If you go to Fed ex location they should pack them or give the box relatively cheap.I use UPS because they pack the whole damn thing right there right in front of me.

Simple, go buy youself a set of Mizunos, they will come packed nicely in a Mizuno box, use that box to ship your old ones. Problem solved.

Probably any golf store or pro shop will have a closet or backroom filled with club boxes. Just go in and ask. Probably won't cost a thing.

Well, I saw a guy 2 weeks ago air-mail his 3-wood from one side of the fairway back to his cart and it ended up broken. I wouldn't ship them that way. I suppose you could say he.....went postal?

Thank you, thank you. No need to applaud. I've got a book comin' out.

No seriously, just go to any sporting goods place, even a wal-mart if for some reason Golf Galaxy or Dick's give you a problem and ask them for a box. You won't spend more than $17 with fed-ex or UPS. And always keep your boxes whenever you buy clubs.

When I bought my used clubs, they came in the "tube box" that was posted here before. The seller wrapped each club with newspapers to keep metal away from metal.

Worked pretty well. They arrived in good condition.

You should be able to find a sufficient box for free. It may take a couple of minutes...

Wrap the heads in newspaper & rubberband it on. Put 1/2 the clubs in head down, put 1/2 the clubs in grip down - to distribute the weight.

UPS, FedEx or USPS will all have comperable rates - depending on where you're shipping the clubs.

Any decision yet on your next set???

Hey guys, thanks for the advice, my wife actually went to Dicks and got me a box. So I'm gonna ship out those irons tomorrow.

Jay- thanks for all your help man, and yea, I have decided on the MP57's. Although thanks to what you have told me, if I cant get the 57's for the price I want, I will go with the J36's. They sound very similar to each other.

Appreciate it guys!

FedEx is the way to go for a set of irons. They are the cheapest, UPS is most expensive and USPS Priority is 2nd best to FE for iron sets. I always use USPS Priority for singles.

    • Bought the wrong flex wedge... should I return?
      I had finally found the last wedge in my tm r9 set (sand wedge, 55 deg) on ebay and payed a pretty decent amount for it ($53) for being a ~4-5 year old club and being used. I'm happy with the condition, but the seller put on the page part of the listing that it was a stiff flex, but on the actual description field section it said regular flex. I took a gamble since I didn't have a lot of time to contact the seller before the auction ended... and lost. I won the auction, but turns out it has the stock shaft KBS satin steel in REGULAR flex  So my question is, seeing as I have a pretty decent swing speed on my irons fitted for stiff steel shafts... should I play with this club?  I think I'm reading that because it's a shorter club that you may be okay with playing different flexes on the shorter wedges, is this true?  My options are to return the club (if they'll accept that... technically it said regular flex in the description elsewhere) and use that money towards getting fitted for one of the independent wedges (cleveland, titleist,etc) or get a new shaft on this one (kind of a waste I would think?).  Side-note I'm actually pretty timid with my sand wedge in my current game. I usually don't attack it as hard as my other clubs above it (AW+). I hit my current SW only about 75 y full shot. My AW is 95y full. But if I ever have an approach shot between 70-80y to the center of the green (which happens frequently now) I will go with my AW, grip down, and take a 3/4 swing that I'm very comfortable with. I have a moderately HIGH ball flight so they land pretty soft. So I can cover my club gap pretty well, and very comfortably. This may not be relevant but I'm shooting solid mid-eighties now and the area I'm losing a CONSIDERABLE amount of strokes every round being in 5-20y chip shots. Let's put it this way, if I could just HIT THE GREEN (anywhere on the green) consistently with these short chips... I could be breaking 80. I'm hitting  around 10/18 GIR usually now with a few nGIR. I tell you this because my SW is not part of my iron set, and has a "crescent" sole that like to dig hard. It has almost zero bounce. This new wedge will at least have some bounce which I'm hoping will help here. Albeit buying clubs doesnt fix games... fixing your swing fixes games  Your input would be greatly appreciated! Before I can even play this club I will need to have it cut down and re-gripped so that why I ask now instead of just playing with it and seeing if it goes okay.  Thanks guys and gals! 
    • Who is going to be the next big name in golf
      Last year at this time I said Ollie S, but that's not looking good right now. Not sure what's happened to him. I think Spieth, Day and Rory are gonna be the Big 3 for a while. But I do think Justin Thomas and Matthew F have some potential to get up there with them. 
    • Joost Luiten
      Joost struggling on the final day,he needs a very strong back nine,still 6 shots off the lead with 8 to play.
    • Standing on Tee Marker for Aiding a Swing
      Speaking in practical terms, would it even be possible to make a swing with your foot on the tee marker without moving it? Most tee markers I've seen aren't heavy and bolted down like a bench or a chair would be. 
    • Lowest score you've seen?
      I've played with guys who shot 67 or 68. I don't know what he shot, but I was playing in the group ahead of Ed Dougherty one day many years ago. He was knocking the flags down all day long. I can't remember how many he stacked inside 10 feet, but it was more than a handful. I remember someone commenting how poor(sarcasticly) one of his shots were that stopped 20 feet from the hole. Most impressive ball striking I've ever seen in person.
