    In all honesty driving the truck to the location and flying back would be the least expensive. There are not very many shippers that would allow you to ship it for a price that was inexpensive.

    1)check around at truck stops to see if someone is heading that way with an empty flatbed and see if they want to make a couple hundred bucks for their trip.
    2)call the local train depot and see how much it costs to rent a flatcar for cross country.
