LTL is truck freight, and that is going to need really good protection. But if you have good protection, you can ship that UPS, and it will be a whole lot cheaper. So, the trick is going to be packing it. I would think that bubble wrap packed in inner box, styrofoam corners to outer box would be fine. Allow an inch of bubble wrap and 2” for styrofoam, and maybe 1/2” of cardboard. That would make the outer box 41.5×37.5×14. The UPS Girth would be 41.5 + 2×37.5 + 2×14 = 41.5 + 75 + 28 = 144.5, which is less than the UPS limit of 165”. The UPS weight limit is 150 lbs.
