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.

    • It seems from the ratings that I have seen that, like me, there were a lot of people watching the final round of golf for both the women and the men at the Rio Olympics. The ratings for the men were in fact, second only to the Masters. That is truly fantastic to hear. Going into this Olympics, at least on the men's side, you might think that we were set for a complete disaster. All but a few of the high profile names dropped out for multiple reasons. Pika, safety, or the real reason - just plain tired. I suspect all that didn't play sort of wished they did. They will come out and say that they didn't miss it, because they don't want to look stupid, but the reality is they probably have a pit in their stomach for missing the first Olympics in over 100 years. I am talking about Jason Day, Jordan Spieth, and yes I suspect even Rory McIlroy.

    • Let us know how it goes when you get them.
    • According to GAME GOLF, I have 68% GIR and 13% birdies. 13%/68% (I almost never chip in for birdie) = 19.12%.
    • Damn dude, 4.1?  Wow.  I think you and I were about even when I joined here a couple years ago, 6-something.  You're going in the right direction, I'm headed the other way.  I'm actually at 9.4 at the minute but haven't updated here cuz it's painful and I consider it temporary .  Hand pain gone, actually went to the range this week, 1st time in a year.  So, I plan to throw down a 78 or so and be back under 9 by end of day, fingers crossed.  Keep rolling. No idea what my birdie conversion rate is, I'd guess pretty respectable cuz my putting never left me.
