Default Anyone know of a good cheap shipper for an engine?

Strictly Performance in Van Nuys, CA has donated a Gen III 5.3L shortblock to the PatriotDream.org Camaro project, but I need to find a cheap shipper for it. The more I send on shipping, the less it is I can spend on the rest of the car. It needs to go to HRT Performance in Durham, NC who has donated the machine work and rebuild of the engine.

Anyone know of anywhere or can point me in the right direction? I'd really like to get started on the motor so we can get some pictures for the webpage.

Also, on a good note, we got a definite return date for Shawn, June 2008! Who knows if that will happen or not, but at least we have something to look forward to!

I like Yellow Freight.

Regardless of who you choose, If you go with a major carrier such as Yellow or ABF, You can save a lot of money by having it shipped to your chosen carrier's local terminal, and going to pick it up yourself, at Will Call. The terminals are open 24x7 and I will usually go to pick up at 8PM or so, when there's not much going on.

If that is not an option, second best is to have it shipped to a place of business (as opposed to residential delivery). As soon as you opt for delivery to a residence you will pay a lot more. Hope this helps -Rob

I'll call Yellow tomorrow and see. I would be having it shipped right from the business that donated it to the machine shop that is working on it, so business to business. I'll also see about picking up at the terminal, either way would be easy. Thanks for the help!

Default First parts for the PatriotDream.org Camaro are here!

I recieved some pedal covers from Modo Innovations today and they are amazing. The quality of these things is amazing, I absolutely love them! They are gonna look killer in the car and once I get the Bandit in one piece again I am going to order some for it. They are insanely cool.

Oh man, I just realized they offer 4th gen pedals too. I'm ordering some up next month for the 6-spd swap.

Forward Air www.forwardair.com, will be half of anyone else price, but you will have to take it to the terminal, which are at most major airports.

I'll check out Forward Air. I know there is a terminal at the airport by my work, so that would be perfect. Just gotta see if the place that donated the engine will drop it off to ship it.
