I just got a pair of gloves yesterday that came in about the same sized box. Wonder what some shipping folks are not thinking?

Let us know what you think of that product after the install.

Postage goes mainly by weight/distance. Box size only comes into play after a certain measurement. Still, ya think they could find a smaller box.

Boxes of a size range cost the same to buy so they limit the sizes they get. As for shipping, it's genrally by weight, also bracketed so the shipping cost is no more. The benefit is they can fit larger items in if need be.

...consider yourself lucky that they didn't fill the box with confetti or plastic chips.
oh i hate that stuff with a passion ,i always end up with it everywhere when fishing around for my tiny partand i spose the loosing the package makes sense.but i still think a big padded envelope would be just as good with a tracking number.anyway hope the roller bearing works well .im thinking it will make the throttle silky smooth

It could be worse. Last week I had a snowmobile windshield shipped to me folded in half and crammed into a couple helmet boxes taped together.
