Previously I just took it to FedEx and they did it all. Now I see there is a significant difference between do it yourself labels vs counter prices . Sooooo how do I measure the tube? Website only shows boxes. Thanx for your help.
I've shipped mine UPS in the past and not even needed measurements. I'd give Mike @ Big Fish Transport a call; he's in the business of tackle logistics for us "out of towners". PM me and I've got his info.
I ship a rod tube all the time on Fedex, using print my own labels. For the dimensions, try going to the rod tube's manufacturer's web site. I have an SKB and a large Plano tube. If you need dimensions, let me know.
