Large object shipping

Anyone ever shipped anything about 50" x 65" x 24" and about 125#? If so, who did you go through and what did it cost?

Brian, what do you need to ship? Is it hazardous? I've got packages that size and larger shipping everyday. Drop it by my shop and I'll send it for you. My cost is around $90 shipped anywhere in the country. It would go LTL freight. I have an account with Roadrunner Transportation, http://www.rdfs.com/

Shipped a fairly big box through fedex that was about 110 pounds years ago for a 3 dollar flat rate. Was working at fedex at the time. I think they still give those employee deals if you can find someone that works at fedex/ups.


Due to recent budget cuts and the rising cost of electricity, gas, and oil,

The box size is beyond the Fedex limits. It would have to go FedEx Freight. That was a damn good deal though.

Went through FedX to ship my transmission to ShepRacing. It was around $90 plus the supplies I bought from the Home Depot.

You wanna see my itinerary?

Try Roadway too. Trucking companies are hurting for freight these days.

brian, i can come pick it up and we can ship it outta my work which is right down the street so it wont be a pain in the ass if u need to ship it out...i can store it here too while they come to pick it up...tractor trailer docks and all...not even 10 minutes from your house.

let me know, its the least i can do for giving me a hand getting the T.V.

...plus my gf was with me saying "omg slow down, slow down" and I was thinking "Lose annoying squalk box in passenger seat, afford more mods and have less weight in the car and on the back of the bike"...so i dumped her and I'm single again as usual...HERE KITTY KITTY!!!
