Mike- Please try [email protected] CARRIERS...i use this trucking company. example. the last thing i shipped was a set of wheels that weighed 150lbs and i sent to Texas from S.C. and it cost me $150.00.. wrap it up in bubble wrap etc....bolt it to a pallet take it to the the shipping company and off it goes...they should have a terminal close to you...the shaepest way to their 1-800# and ell thjem what you are shipping and they will give you a code # to use when you plug in your qoute.....

try this link

they will even pick the blower up from your house and ship it to where you want it to go.....

good luck

I just purchased a short block that wasnt together guy put it on a crate in OK and shipped it to me in MI said it was only like $90.00 to do so. This was Fed-ex.

Hey Mike,
I agree with David, fed-ex freight is probably one of the best choices'. I just last week recieved my chassis for the Anglia, from A.R.T. which is 780 miles from me. i don't know what the total weight was but the pallet was 5' wide by 12' lg and it included rear housing,chassis,rack and pinion, and lots of related parts.
The cost was $480.00, i'm sure yours would be much less due to size of the crate. I think O.T.R. prices are about $1.28 per lb. Atleast that's what i was charged for a blk. from st Petersburg Fl. that's being shipped on monday and that's door to door.

just my .02
