Or freight in general - seems a lot trickier than ups/FedEx etc!

Just wondering what is the best choice for shipping - which carrier, etc. Talked to one company Averitt express and they want 360 to ship because it is residential to residential. Fex ex even worse than that.

All things considered shipping a sub isn't worth it. I assume you want to sell it. Only sell locally, and only to someone who tests it before taking it. Aside from the high cost of shipping the threat of being damaged is high, and if the buyer decides he doesn't want it he'll claim that it arrived broken.
Blood Simple and eljaycanuck like this.

that actually sounds like a decent price for LTL (single skid, non stackable)


FYI LTL isn't cheap... ever....

How big is the sub? If it's less 150 pounds and can fit in a box roughly 36x30x30, then you can go with FedEx ground which will be closer to $200-275 depending on how far it goes. MD to CA, 36x30x30 at 150 pounds is $260.
