RE: Good Ideas....

Hey Yuichi...motor freight cost is all pretty much the same unless you can get a shipper to add to a load coming your way. Other Ideas....Fly there and bring back as excess baggage...or...take a few days vacation and drive there, install it and drive it home :))) Good Luck!

Yuichi, try some of the freight companies like Reddaway and Yellow freight. I have a contract with Reddaway, unfortunately it does not work for third party situations or I'd have everyone shipping stuff. Meaning I can ship only to and from my warehouse.

Try a Mail Boxes ETC type place too. If you go the freight route, make sure it is protected very well. It will change truck many times and they're not careful (i don't mean careless) with stuff. Also make sure to ask them what insurance is included. I know reddaway will include up to $25 per pound.

Good Luck

Get one custom built here

You may want to look at having one custom built locally, it will probably be cheaper. You can also try moving companies and see if they may do something for you. Freight usually goes by a minimum weight and cost a heft amount. By the way, is this a used one somewhere? I am also looking for a 4 or 6 point roll bar, any leads? BTW how is Z coming along?
