I called them,and the response was they excede their size limitations and they will not ship. But I thought maybe someone knew if they took them oversize or something,the girl didn't know how to spell Los Angeles.
Dave, I remember a post months ago that this topic came up. A lot of options were discussed, and I suggested using the 'Running Dog'. I haven't inquired with a bus line, but, years ago, my grandfather used to ship farm parts to Greenville,Tx. on the bus. Just needed someone to pick it up. Might try them. GL.
Eugene, I shiped two tubs across the country for about $500. apiece. The secret is boxing them up and calling them auto parts. when I didn't have them boxed they came under a "240" class and wanted $1300., when I boxed them, so that they could be stacked on, they were put in a "60" class, which almost a third of the price. I shipped through[ Roadway Trucking ]. Cheap and inside a covered truck. I delivered them to there dock and they took them to there closes dock. Call them and see.

look in your phone book for a carrier that has a terminal near you. Our book has them under trucking - motor freight. Call them to find a carrier that serves both points direct. Describe them as sheet metal parts unassembled for one of the lowest classifications. You will have to pack , crate or palletize them for safe handling. You will also likely have to bring them to the terminal or pay a residential pick up charge. They will help you fill out bill of lading at terminal. Be prepared a minimum charge cross country probably starts around $100 - $150. You could also check with RPS (now Fedex Ground in some areas) if they are near you. They used to take larger pkges than UPS.
Do you know anyone that works for a company that does a lot of shipping? They could help.
