Who had shipped large packages?

I'm selling a trifold cover for a shortbed...I have never shipped an item that large.

It will be approximately 72 inches long, 24" wide and 6 inches thick.

Does anyone know if the usps will handle something this large? Or will I have to use a freight company?

You can use UPS, or Greyhound (GPX). GPX is less expensive, but the catch is that t has to be dropped off at a Greyhound terminal, and picked up by the recipient at the destination terminal.

A 104 sq in area? That's only a little larger than a 10"x10" box...

I'm sure I misunderstood
