I would. After everyone pays me in advance first to swing down to pick them up though!
We ship longs regularly out of my company's shipping and receiving, and because of what we ship we package extreme to avoid the shenanigans of the commercial couriers. For instance, the poles would go in triple-ply cardboard tube mailers with Instapak at each end, then stapled-on inner plastic end caps, and then glued cardboard outer caps! We then run a custom-printed tape at the ends with a dashed line and "cut here" markings because you literally have to saw an end off to get the contents!
