    Does anyone have any experience or ideas with shipping a set of four carpeted car floor mats? I'm trying to figure out a way to do so that won't cost and arm and a leg. All the flat rate USPS boxes appear to be too small.

    Based on my measurements, with no folding or rolling, I would need a box that measures 26 in long x 18 in wide x 2 in high. I suppose a higher (but less long or wide) box could accommodate the mats with some light rolling of the mats. Thanks for any ideas anyone might have!

    I lightly fold in half and find a box that's roomy. USPS goes by weight, shouldn't be much to ship

    Thanks for the reply guys, so basically just use any box that is big enough to lightly roll them and then use USPS and it should be the cheapest route? We are just talking between CA and TX so not that far. Thanks!

    you’re overthinking this. It’s straightforward. Mine got shipped from the Midwest to upper east coast. No issues, just used an old amazon box.

    Not over thinking just possibly didn't share enough info for you to understand the situation. I myself will be on the receiving end of this delivery and I'm trying to figure out the easiest method possible for the older gentleman who is shipping me the mats. I'll advise him to just find any old box and ship USPS. Thanks.
