Greyhound Shipping
We currently offer Greyhound Standard shipping for the Front Race Splitter only. All shipments travel under our coaches and share the cargo space with passenger luggage. Based on capacity, room can be a commodity. Standard Service shipments can potentially be deferred so that passenger luggage and Priority Service shipments may travel unimpeded. Standard service shipments do not always go out on the next bus, do not always stay on the same schedule, and in the case of multiple pieces, do not always travel together.

Please see the below guidelines for regular transit times by mileage. All transit time days listed are business days (Monday – Friday). Shipments more than 48″ in length or greater than 5 pieces may take up to 13 additional days in transit due to capacity and size constraints.

These guidelines in no way constitutes a guarantee.
