He took it straight to his local FedEx office so they could see what he was shipping and get an estimate. The tuba was a Hirsbrunner HB-12 F, a pretty big, heavy tuba! He shipped it in it's case with some added padding where necessary and some padding in the bell. Needless to say, it made it here just fine. I don't know about others' experience with FedEx, but I was satisfied and would use them if I were in the same situation. By the way, if it helps, it came here to Indiana from Washington, D.C. Good luck!
