Default 2 motors from NJ to Miami?

I have a guy who from the Caymans who is interested in buying my 502s and needs to get them from Brick NJ to Miami. Anybody going that way that who would be able to take them for some GREEN???

Any reasonable shipping companies anybody knows of??? The shipping is on him, but I am trying to save him a few bucks if possible

Thanks for any help.

look at any LTL freight company, I think on the east coast look up RL. they seem pretty large or Roadway. you will have to put them on a pallet

Put them in crates, call me with the size of the crates and I'll get you a price. May need to have a Hi-Low in Miami to get them off. How fast do they have to be there. 201-863-3560 Monday or my cell is 201-665-1033. Augie

If you really want to protect the motors ..And if they are complete drop ins ...you might check into regular merc shipping crates ...the motors bolt right up with the motor mounts and really provide protection ..And have notches for forklifts ... completely inclosed in hard plastic .... I use mine for work test/stands... Merc gets 150.00 each deposit ...

You can also call Frank @ Typhoon or Francine at ProRoc. They may have a dually going down for the Miami show.

Thanks for the info guys. Dave, I tried Franny. That is actually where my motors are. Rolfe said that they are pulling a boat to Miami so he thought they might be overloaded.
