$300 for driveshaft with yoke is fair. I suggest bubble wrap, then wrap three or four layers of cardboard - it's easy to get a big empty box from any furniture or appliance store. Fold the ends over and wrap the whole thing in dollar store shipping tape. The cost to ship will be about $25 to $30 , plus $5 to insure it for $600 at the UPS store. Obviously, I'll pay those costs.
