Give me crate dimensions, weights, and an address and I'll get a cost. We get huge discounts with the freight companies, and they will be easier to load at my place than yours.

Thats how we work with all the truck lines as well, forklifts always make it nice with user friendly loading docks. I use Old dominion alot but everybody uses different. Hows it goin Bubba?

Perfect.

I shipped one of my Zul's once, and the shipping company sat something on it. It was an easy fix thankfully, but the crating could have been MUCH better.

That, or call Tyson! He's taken my stuff all over the place and they get there quick and safe.

Make sure they put the "1200sci" stickers on before they send em back too!
