Hi all,
I have this Zenith front projector. I bought it from a friend a few months ago and recently replaced it with a Yamaha LX-500. I want to sell the Zenith, but the thing weighs at least 60lbs, and it's just monsterous. Has anyone had any experience in shipping these sorts of things? Do FedEx/UPS handle things like this normally or is it some kind of "special" pickup? I'd like to know what I'm getting into before I put it up for sale. Thanks.

Shippers have dimensional limits, and weight plus a big box may exclude some shippers. Others just ask for more money.

If you can ship via freight, you shouldn't have a problem as long as you take the time to pack it well. If you can build a simple wooden mount for it, and fasten it to a skid and then enclose it, you are golden. Shipping cost is what kills the deals on these, methinks.

Good luck!

Maybe you'd be better off parting it out?
You call that a knife?
