    I might be wrong, but when I have shipped parts in the past, FedEx was cheapest.

    I have an uncle who owns a business, maybe that will be my option.

    You dont have a friend or family member who can lend you their address temporarily?

    thanks for all the help guys but the idea was tossed out the window after about a week of research into it. fil131 ressurected the thread and i just gave him the info that i found. Sorry i didnt hit back on here that i had canked the idea.

    SPAZ,
    if i ever run into a shipping issue i will def hit you up. I appreciate the offer.

    BigRon,
    Ya i could have at the time and it would have made it cheaper but like i told fil the corps keeps me pretty busy out here, we are geting ready to head over soon so since the new year we have been out straight with training and prep for the deployment.

    Freight is cheaper if you can take it to the dock, and someone on the other end can pick it up @ a dock in their area..
    Home feight pick up will be pricey if they will even drive up your street..
    I've had engine blocks shipped through Vitran for like $120.00.. You will likely need to palletize it tho..
