Default Engine shipping??

Does anyone deal with a freight company that ships engines on a regular basis? I have had engines transported before for $250 or $300. Don't remember who it was through. Calling around and getting quotes of $800 each due to weight.

Anyone know who i could call?

weight and size is a factor in freight... are they bigger and heavier than the last few you have had shipped???

Default A Prediction !

With your good luck and track record,your finished engines will probably vanish on the way back to you so shipping costs will only be a small part of the equation.
