Default anyone shipped a bat before? best way?

I am trying to find out the best/cheapest way to ship a full sized bat? Also where would I get a box that works for it? I saw that UPS has a express tube but I assume they probably charge a arm and a leg. Does Usps offer any priority box that a bat could fit in? Thanks!

I believe you can use those express tubes to ship UPS ground. I work at UPS and I'm pretty sure I've seen those shipped through ground. Would be the best way to ship those IMO because there is plenty of room for padding and such.

Just as others have said, use a shipping tube. I believe it ended up costing me $15 shipping after the seller put DC and insurance on it

I have shipped a few through the USPS using their triangle box. Worked perfect.
