    I would suggest a LTL freight shipment.
    Link to YRC rating page. http://tinyurl.com/poemmag
    If there are no loading docks on pickup and delivery end you will need liftgates.
    Is the pick up point or delivery point a residence? Note that on rate request.
    Package the body like this:

    Make sure you get insurance coverage for the shipment.

    Jump in a pickup and go get it! That's not a bad drive and you can get a lot in the back of a full sized bed. This is in a 5.5' bed. Saved a ton of money over shipping costs and that included gas, 2 motel rooms and meals for 2. That was Iowa to Connecticut and back. Yours would be a nice trip.

    Rent a van or pickup, or call Fastenal, I had a '38 Ford nose shipped from Minnesota to Connecticut for under $250.00 Bob
