    Greyhound is a lot cheaper! They ship large items. Had a Blazer rear seat shipped from KS to WA for $35. Recipient just has to pick up the item at the bus station.

    FedEx and UPS (Ground) both have the same dimension rules: 130 inches of combined length and girth. Girth the distance all the way around and length is always the largest of the three dimesions. UPS will ship something this size for about $25. FedEX Ground charges $14. These are for things that aren't too heavy, though. After that, you have to ship it as freight and the rates there start about $100.

    Probably best to find a local freight shipping company that can make you a deal at some time when they are already running, but not full.
