Shipping advice?

Hello all, I was referred here by a friend.
I looking for shipping solutions for shipping a metal working tool from another state to me.
The unit will be on a pallet and about 250lbs.
Looking for a reliable, easy to work with, resonable shipper.
Thanks ~kjpro~

Thanks, I got that link from the guy that referred me here.
I called them, and they are pretty reasonable.
Thanks, ~kjpro~

They are a broker house but get you the best rate on all types of shipping... I have shipped big machinery at very reasonable rates with them.

Forward Air is not easy to work with, but they can save you some money. Yellow Freight is very easy to deal with and reasonable. I would definitely check freightquote and maybe look for other shipping brokers as well.

You've run into one of my (and many others...) pet peeves. I know this has been brought up before, but, when you ask for advice about services, supplies, machines or whatever might be available, please tell us where you are. Many of us have had experiences with various shippers and are more than willing to help. But experience with, say, a West Coast regional shipper moving something from California to Utah doesn't have much applicability if you are in Florida...

My very strong suggestion is to call freightquote.com. They are super professional and also offer extremely reasonable rates. They are not a shipper, they arrange shipping, and so they negotiate good discounts.
I shipped two items with them, for which the recipients paid. Freightquote handled everything in a superb manner and I thought that the rates were quite sensible.

Thanks for the help everyone.
~kjpro~ BTW, not sure if this will post to both groups as the later didn't show on my list.
