Shipping a crate

Post by Belliott3 » Tue Mar 05, 2019 2:56 pm

I have to fairly large wooden crates I need to ship to California and need some input on who to use. I cannot use Fastenal, as they do not ship to California. If you have used someone and were happy with the outcome, please let me know.

That would be "two" wooden crates, not to!

Does Greyhound still transport goods? If so, does it cost less than UPS or Fedex?

Bill, Try U Ship on the net, people bid on shipping your boxes. You need to tell size and weight of the boxes and how soon you need it delivered. Worked for me for an aircraft engine out of Texas for 280. Hope this helps, Joe

Thanks for the offer, but I already found a reputable shipping company and they are coming Monday. I appreciate all the input, though!
