    I don't know how reliable they are, but Greyhound ships big stuff quicker and hella cheaper than UPS and Fed Ex... But you have to drop it off yourself and the other person has to go pick it up /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    [/ QUOTE ]Call your local railroad if your shipping to someone who can pick up from a railroad yard. We've shipped engines and transmissions via U.P. , but it's been along time.

    I have heard there is such a thing as a, "Freight broker" that will find you the lowest price on shipping.

    I just shipped a 44, 14 bolt and crossover setup from St. Louis, MO to Dallas, TX for $235 with Forward Air. That was with insurance and everything.
