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 go..call 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 http://www.gorlc.com/


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

good luck

Brian

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

Zip.
