Re: Best way to ship inflatable?

Make sure there is no compressed gas cylinder with it, and ship it as regular freight?

I've never shipped one myself, but only issue I could think of would be if it's a self inflating life raft etc.

Worst case as my answer isn't probably very helpful, it did "bump" your thread

Thank you. No... It's not an auto inflating life raft. It's a Tinker 9 ft self inflated. Just didn't know if better to ship 55# to BVI and have to pay an import tax. Or better to ship to St. Thomas Am virgin island and pu there.
