Default Shipping Drives

I have a pair of drives (complete upper and lowers) that I just bought in Florida that I need to get shipped to Los Angeles. Anyone have any reccomendations or referrals?? Thanks in advance.

Just ship them via common carrier and make sure and insure them for the full amount... we always ship our equipment with Yellow Freight, you can go to www.myyellow.com it's easy to register, you can get quotes do your Bill of Lading online and it will even print out the Shipping Labels... The most important thing is to crate them up properly and put them on a pallet...

Why don't you just get Mindy (dollar) to ship them for you?

Hurry up and put that thing back together. We need you for the anual Cig raft up at the sandbar in havasu during the poker run.

Mindi is getting me a firm quote tomorrow, but her initial quote seemed way high. Just wanted to check with you guys and see what other carriers are avail for something like this.
Can't wait to get this thing back on the water !!!
Thanks to the rest of you for the reccomendations - much appreciated !!

Mindi can use the shipping crate I made for my out drives. It held a Max Machine shorty with room to spare it may hold a pairof XR's.That is If she still has it.

Mindi has been fantastic to deal with. Excellent communications and everything has been done in a very timely, professional manner. I'm just going to have her ship the drives...she got back to me today with some reasonable quotes so they should be here in a week or so.
Thanks again everyone for your help and information.
I've been on these forums for years, mostly car forums....but you guys are the most helpful and friendly I have yet to encounter online.

Rock on OSO !!!!
