How were they packaged? Boxes? Any other major carriers who ship stuff like this?

Also try Greyhound: Greyhound PackageXpress

They're incredibly cheap for larger items like this. You have to drop off/pick up at a bus terminal, but everyone that I know that has used them has been very happy. They're very popular with the R/C airplane crowd shipping fragile large scale model airplanes.

When I got my Corbeau's in Corbeau UK shipped them to to US warehouse, which then sent to me via UPS Express, it was about $100 for that half of the shipping. Them both came in the same small box. I was so surprised that even 1 fit in it. This Greyhound shipping sounds like a great method for things like this, I'll have to keep that in mind.

2009 Lancer GTS - Sold
2008.5 Mazdaspeed3 GT - Sold
1997 Subaru 22B Replica - Sold
1993 M3 - Sold
2005 Elise - Sold
2013 Veloster Turbo - Daily

UPS ground from CA to NC - 2 seats from an 05' Elise - 40 pounds total - box was 30"x30"x50" = $50. The key here is that I shipped it from my place of employment using their company UPS account (and paid them back with a check), otherwise it would have cost more...
