Best and cheapest do not go together

How large and what it is will determine shippng method

I have used Greyhound multiple times for some oversized items with great luck. Price is reasonable and the service was good.

its a set of Convertible rear seats, that are in Illinois area, that I'm interested in.
I'm coming up with UPS prices of about $400+ just shipping to Rhode Island.

I find Fed Ex ground to be more reasonable than UPS or the USPS, but greyhound is probably the cheapest route. Watch your box size, it may be cheaper to use two boxes as the carriers tend to work on "dimensional weight"

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

I had the best luck with Uship. Google it. Excellent rate - great service. Delivered as promised.

I will definitely use them again.

Shipped a block and misc engine parts from Neb to Ok for just under $300. It was already crated but about 450 lbs!

The Cleveland long block I bought from Don of OMS
cost $310 to ship 2500 miles door to door.
Try www.freightquote.com, I was very pleased with
the level of service. You tell them what want to do and
they give you several choices of shipping companies
that can do that for you.

+1 FedEx seem to handle freight more carefully than UPS
