I've shipped many things before but am not sure how I would go about this. I live near a Staples but am not sure they have anything long enough to ship it. Don't want to pay like 5 bucks for a huge box either, any suggestions?

Pick up 4-5 Flat Rate boxes from the USPS, for free and cut open to lay flat. Flatten out bag and fold if possible and fit boxes then tape together.

Hope that made sense

if it can be folded up then suggest trying USPS and ask them which method (USPS box included) is cheaper. USPS has flat rate and by weight so the "by weight" probably is cheaper if domestic shipping.

If bag is full of equipment, same idea, just assemble boxes to fit your requirements

The bag doesn't fold it just compresses so it's still 30 in long

Just hit up a UPS Store or Fedex office. They have boxes thier or will make one that will fit it and send it on its way. Cost isnt that different.

Find the nearest racquet shop and ask them for any leftover racquet boxes.

Say that it's carry-on baggage. Some people don't charge for carry-on baggage as long as it fits in the compartment.

Laugh when it takes up the entire compartment room.

Post the people mad about your rackets taking up the entire space.

Post the lols.
