    Hi everyone. I'm looking to ship a big ol Ford 6.4 on a pallet from Tampa FL to Long Beach CA. It weighs around 1400lbs. Any suggestions for shipping? Looking for terminal to terminal.

    You can check Fastenal but I don't think they are currently taking third party shipments to California but it might have changed.

  5. Check,and see if R &L freight is in FL. I know they delivered a transmission to me in northern Ca. and I see their trucks in Wisconsin so they may be nation wide.

    I think R&L is nationwide. If not, they will have agreements with other companies to hand it off to to finish delivery . Most all freight companies work this way.

  9. I would secure it better than what you've done. It's a log trip.

    I'm going to crate it. Just had it like that so a local could come check it out. But it looks like it's gonna have to ship.

    Look up a site called freightquote. They will give you multiple quotes from different shippers and you pick the one that suits you. I recently went thru the process for a long heavy (400 lbs) shipment and prices were as high as $1000. I ended up shipping thru them fo $200. Whatever you do.....GET INSURANCE.
