Jacob, are you buying it from a person or a company?

If it's a company, they should have better "negotiated rates" with their shipper(s).

If it's an individual, you're in a tight spot. The "Retail" rates for UPS & FedEx are RE-DICK-YOU-LUS.

I k ow several car peeps that live in or near that zip, maybe they could help?

Hard part is getting it on a pallet and prepared for freight shipment. If the seller could get it palletized and drop it off at terminal and you could puck it up at terminal...I could get you a pretty good freight rate. It's the final mule stuff that gets pricey on freight shipments.

How much service did they provide? Just terminal to terminal or did they do packaging?

In this particular case, the dude is picking it up and putting it in his SUV and delivering to my door. It wasn't cheap but it was reasonable.

You are going a far way though.
