Can anyone give me the package dimensions of the 30" delta unifence
(36-902). Just ordered one, I'm in the States next week but I'm a bit
worried about getting it on the plane on the way home.
Rest easy, as long as you don't try to get it on as "carry on".
No, can't give you any dimensions, but it is not heavy, not large and from
memory, will be in two (2) boxes.
Can't comment on any possible customs problems; however<G>.
Depends. The new size limits are smaller than many golf clubs. Clubs are
specifically mentioned at being OK by some airlines. The airlines would lose
a lot of business if they charged extra for them.
Items that exceed 62" total length + height+ width Accepted with a fee
Over 80" Not accepted
If you can get the package marked "wheelchair" you can bring it. Maybe you
should add a mobile base?
After 30+ years of flying, I'm never amazed at what people
are willing to "try" to bring on a airplane.
I have seen guitars,televisons,hat boxes,coolers,stuffed
animals,a "full size mannequin", live animals in a purse,
and pieces of luggage that nobody in the NFL
could possibly carry.
The passenger is always "amazed" that the attendant will not
let them bring there "stuff" on board.
Which begs the question, "How in the name of God did they get
through security or customer check-in ???".
Ask if Skis are acceptable to ship, then get a bag designed to carry skis.
That makes it luggage, rather than freight. This from taking a ceiling
fan to Hawaii from the mainland before they were readily available there.
That flimsy nylon bag, regardless of what is in it, makes a difference in
how they classify items. Of course with the new homeland insecurity act
all bets may be off.
Delta does have a "contact us" section on their web page. They should be
able to give you the dimensions. The rails are the longest part and in my
case (Bies fence) it was in a separate carton from the fence itself. Be
sure to check with your airlines size limits; they have become somewhat
I just got back from Jamaica and while down there bought a big
carving. Almost 7' tall and about 12" diamater of a parrot on a
branch. They packaged it up in newspaper and wrapped cardboard around
it and used packing tape. They even created a handle for it out of
tape and cardboard, and the handle made it almost home bfore it broke.
The airline in Jamaica didn't even bat an eye when they saw it. Came
through customs and they never even looked at it. Checked it back on
for my second leg of the flight and no problmes. This thing must have
weighed in excess of 80 pounds and there was no additional charge.
