Anyone here ever ship a motor by freight? I am getting off the wall quotes between $350- $625. I know there has got to be a way to ship this thing cheaper than that. Any help would be great.

Oh, zips are 85016 to 48433


Thanks

Todd

That's nuts! We just shipped a pallet of stuff to the UK for $250 FedEx Economy. The guy that bought my 250 shipped it from my house to New York for $600.

You'll have to create an account but it should be easy.

I think your best bet might be FedEx but call them because their site sort of sucks and is confusing. At least last I looked at it.

it looks like it would be cheaper to drive out there especially if they want that much

That's nuts! Did you ask about economy? Like I said we used FedEx a couple weeks ago to ship a pallet of products to the UK and it was $250.
