Shipping?

Unread postby Ballistic_RT » Wed Nov 29, 2017 9:44 am

Wanting to place a bow for sale on here. Chances of a local sale are pretty slim. How does one go about shipping something so large?

Get a bow box from an archery shop and use that, just add some bubble wrap. Buyer pays shipping.

Yup exactly that. I just call up my local shop and ask him to hold me a box, he just throws them away. Then wrap the bow in bubble wrap and ship it.

Thanks guys. Plan is to sell a 2014 G5 Prime Defy. 60# @ 28". Will include a 29" cam as well. Complete and ready to hunt. Not too sure what fair price would be or what to expect on shipping cost to add.

Probably about $25-30 to ship the bow depending on how far its going. Its really pretty easy and in this day and age the post office doesnt even blink at a big box.

Take a look on archerytalk and see if there are any on there and base your price off that. Used bows are like cars tho after a year the price drops a lot
