    On a pallet... through a shipping company that handles heavy freight.

    Or build a crate for it and bolt it to the crate from the inside. Gator Freight usually gets about $80 for east coast shipping.

    paypal transfers from buyer to seller are instant. paypal transfers from paypal to bank takes 3 days. hope you guys didnt get screwed over, sucks about the fire. best way to ship a tranny is call around to different freight companys and use the one that gives you the best rates.
