You could try www.freightquote.com . I beleive that is their site. You may have to setup an account but last I knew it didn't cost anything to do so. They can give you prices that multiple shippers would charge. When I was checking on shipping a projector I had quotes all over the board.
I used BAX. The ship all over the country. I shipped my 1270 in a large anvil case that came with it. 200lbs was the listed weight. It was $200 just a little over or a little under. I think it took three days. Hope it helps.
If there is a Forward Air terminal at the destination and picking up at the terminal is not a problem then Forward Air will save you money. A 200 lb shipment from coast to coast will cost less than $100.
Thank you all for the great tips, I decided to go with Forward Air. The shipping charges came to a total of $65 with insurance. Two days ago I thought the $417 quoted by Consolidated Freightways was more or less acceptable.
The only thing that I do not know is how careful they would be with the package, which is an anvil case. I guess, insurance will take care of any damages.
