Baggage Size Limits

Traveling to the US next year and just wondered what people have brought back with them in terms of size rather than weight. Flying with Virgin and they only seem to deal with the weight rather than size of the item. Was thinking to bring a front fender back with me as they are a light but bulky item. Probably need to pack a few other things in the box to get it up to the 23kg weight limit. Years ago I had my cousin bring a 300C bumper over from the east as checked baggage for me, no problems and no extra cost, bloody big box though.

Those fender boxes are bloody huge Darren,approx 2mtsx1mtrx50cms. Id still make some calls or check online for size limits. Ive never known anyone bringing in an item that big but Id imagine there would be some oversize fee. Even so, Voz only hits you up $100 for overweight, if the same theory applies its worth the $100.

Not much bigger than a travelling surfer with three boards in a bag

Not big in cubic size, but I carried on a full Baer front brake setup (rotors, stubs, calipers, brackets etc) a couple of years ago. Also had a backpack, and the missus had bulk shopping that was too delicate to check in.

I bought 2 x 295/15x50 TA radials back in the day - don't think you would get away with it now. that was either Qantas or United Airways tho.
Only thing they complained about was that I had a little bottle of Water Wetter in there too, so they made me take that out.
