    I've heard of people shipping stuff via Greyhound for fairly inexpensive. Don't know too much about it though.
    I don't think UPS would ship my third row, so I had my cousin hold onto it until I went to visit him.

    Disassemble it or fold it. Fedex GROUND has been very good to me, unlike UPS, and they have a slightly larger maximum.

    I managed to ship a Chalet side seat, somewhat larger than your seat, in two boxes this way.

    Wasn't exorbitantly expensive, either... maybe $30 for TWO boxes from WI to CA, as I recall.

    You might try greayhound for larger things depending on where you are and where you are shipping it.

    fedex ground is the cheapest/best normal carrier for heavy stuff. I shipped my tube doors (over 50 lbs all packed up) from WA to TX for $34.xx.
