Default Shipping chunks of car

Anyone know what the cheapest way to ship parts across the country or across borders (no ups). This is going to be a big box, lots of parts.

FedEX will **** you just as bad as UPS and in my experience aren't as reliable.

DHL or another trucking company is probably the best way to go.

theres a crap load of shipping comanies out there. but its a matter of cost.

fedex frieght is a bit different than fedex ground. theyll acutally come pick the **** up too if you make arrangements. same with dhl.

otherwise bust out your phone book.

off the top of my head the place I use here the most to shop trade show stuff is DBA. (distribution by air)

Exactly. I shipped all of my worldy possesions (other than my Miata) up to Boston from Orlando on several pallets, total cost was less than $800.
