    just got a quote to ship a f23 from ct to fl for $372 from ups. i think that is a crazy price to charge. what company have any of you shipped a motor with? and how much did it cost? thanks

    did not buy it i sold it. why can i ship a tranny for $50? how much do you pay for a whole swap shipped? 160? not being cheap just not getting ripped off.

    working with ups all day long I can say that it's a reasonable price. We ship big parts and that's about what you're gonna have to pay for ups. Otherwise we truck it through some carrier.

    Its more than a tranny, because they don't need a fucking lift gate to get a tranny on a truck. You can lift a tranny. I'd like to see you lift an f series motor by your self.

    Dude, there's a huge difference between a trasmission and a whole motor. More than twice the size and weight, stop being cheap.

    While that's a good price from UPS, it's not a good price in general. Anything over 75 lbs, UPS rapes you because their drivers have to move it around. On the rare occasion when I have to ship something more than 75 lbs, I'll use ABF or G.O.D.

    My 3S-GTE with the pallet weighed about 300 lbs, and only cost me $160 to have it shipped from Cali to VT using ABF.

    G.O.D., eh?

    "Dear Lord, please move this engine to its destination. I offer you this chocalate cupcake as thanks. Amen."
