    I need to send a Radio Flyer from CT to AZ, and the quotes from UPS, FedEx, and Roadie.com are over $300.

    Anyone have any alternatives for shipping the box cross-country? I was hoping to spend less than $150.

    The dimensions are: 54x28x18 and 60 pounds. I wonder what it costs Radio-Flyer to send these out?

    thanks.

    Greyhound? Or find someone who ships a lot and has an account with one of the major carriers (ups, fedex, Dhl, etc). they get hefty discounts especially on bulkier items.

    oh, right, I forgot about Greyhound! Thanks.

    edit: Greyhound quote: $142.

    Still open to other ideas.

    Hmmm... how heavy is that box? I’ve shipped larger items with GH before and it came at least 30% less than anyone else.

    60 pounds. There is a 25% off online discount I didn't figure into that. So probably around $110.

    Anyone know if the arachnids are better than the 22" turbines in terms of resale value. My S was crushed so i no longer have it. I'm hoping i can choose either the X wheels or the S wheels and can resell them for money?

    In my non-scientific opinion, the Arachnids seem easier to sell for around $3500. The 22" Turbines are a harder sell (fewer buyers, really). They're also much bigger/heavier to move around/store/ship. And they're also going for about $3500 to $4000.

    But also from what I've heard, you probably won't have a choice -- if you had an S, you get Arachnids, or an X you get 22" Turbines.

    I won my first set of arachnids in phase 5 that ended 10/16, which was the same month I received my present Model S. After winning a second set, I am still waiting. 10 e-mails to Tesla and they are responsive, but no delivery yet.

    I bet my rims will come after I have traded in my Model S for an AWD Model 3. Wonder what they give you if you only own a Model 3?

    I’m still missing my embroidered jacket from 2016. Is anyone still waiting on theirs?

    I have a set from the currently running program and my app says "Available at Service Center" but nobody can tell me which service center -- and they're definitely NOT at my regular service center here in CT. If they are at a SC somewhere, I think (hope) I'll eventually get a phone call to come get them.

    I have received two carry on bags and 3 set of 22" rims, but no embroidered jacket. I guess that's the only thing missing for me now except the wall charger and some of the prices "you can't buy" like "Race a Semi".
