    The cheapest way to ship it is through to ship it is to load it in your truck on a pallet and bring it to a freight shipping company. have the guy pick it up at a warehouse near him instead if too his house and it will be the cheapest way to ship it. As for companys your gonna have to search

    Last I looked at shipping heavy stuf, forward air was MUCH cheaper than any other freight company.

    I got a complete 3.4 shipped to me from Michigan to Colorado-cost me 100 bucks cause I have a friend w/a forklift. Shipping to a business address with the means to unload is MUCH cheaper than delivery to a residence.
