SidelineSwap is a great place to buy and sell golf clubs, both new and used. If you're looking to sell your clubs, we've got a few tips to help you ship them safely.
Materials You'll Need
- Quality packing tape
- USPS Medium Tube box (38 x 6 x 5)
- Bubble wrap/newspaper
Our Seller Assist team ships golf clubs out on a regular basis, and they recommend using free USPS tube boxes.
Single putters, wedges and shorter irons usually fit in box 38” x 6” x 5” (USPS medium tube box). For Single drivers, woods or long putters, tape 2 boxes together. Be sure to cut the box down so the club will not shift around. If you sell 2 clubs to the same buyer and plan to ship together, you can typically fit a 2nd club upside down/inverted in the box.
For iron sets, we recommend taping 2 boxes together and cutting one side so the overall height is approximately 48”. Place half of the clubs in the box with the head down and the other half inverted with the shaft down. We recommend filling the ends of the box with crumpled newspaper or to ensure the clubs are not touching the end of the box.
Don’t forget to use your bubble wrap/newspaper to fill the space in the box to prevent the club from moving in the package. Items without bubble wrap/paper have a higher chance of shifting in the package and piercing the box. This can lead to your item falling out and being lost in transit.
If you cannot get your hands on a USPS medium tube box, you can always use a box you already own. Rug boxes, hockey stick boxes, and lamp boxes are good examples of the proper size and shape box that you could use to ship your clubs.
For Canadian sellers, we recommend checking out the ULINE 38-48” Long corrugated boxes.
