Help with Shipping Question

Unread postby myles_mitchell » Mon Mar 31, 2014 10:38 pm

I am in North Carolina and looking at buying a pole from Texas and was wondering what the cheapest way to ship it.

Anyone got any suggestions?

Thank you in advance.

I've used their on-line request 3 times so far, and I have NEVER gotten a reply back yet. That's just embarrassing for them.

FlyAwayPoles.com went out of business because too many of their customers (including major universities) never paid their bills.

You have to ship poles freight or Cargo, they are too long for USPS/FedEx/UPS. I'm not sure if DHL takes them? Some people use Southwest Cargo. It's usually not worth it for one pole. You're really best off trying to buy from someone within driving distance, or meeting up at a track meet or the Pole Vault Summit.
