Question Half cut shipping recommendations?

Any freight company recommendation for shipping a half-cut? What are typical costs for shipping 1/2 way across the US?

Thanks,
Rob

Hey send an e-mail to Jon at gr8wheels he has a great system for getting whole cars in the country so I would imagine he could help you out with a half-cut. I don't have his e-mail near by so just look in one of his threads in the vendor classifieds.

Thanks, but I'm just looking at shipping recommendations. I already have my eye on a clip, but need to figure out my shipping options.

Rob,
Unless you work for a business that does a lot of volume and has a great negotiated discount from a freight carrier, the importer (assuming you are not getting it from a private seller) will have the best rate/discount to ship it to you. If you can take delivery at a business address, this will save you. If you have a fork lift available, this saves you even more. If you are having it delivered to a residence and require the freight company to provide the forklift, you are pretty much screwed.

CFW used to be the cheapest freight of all the carriers, but they are gone and Fed-Ex freight (part of a merger with Viking a few years back) is likely the best rate for someone without discount.
Just for example, I have seen importers charges $50 freight on a longblock, but guys in the private sale classifieds frequently are paying $150-200 for the same thing.

Being in the Seattle area, I would shop the local importers more before you buy from across the country. You live at one of the major gateways to exporters for their products to enter the country, and you may be able to rent a trailer and just pick one up at a warehouse. Vancouver would be another good place to shop, but then you have crossing the Canadian border to contend with.

Lastly, check your local rally clubs and talk to folks like Primitive Racing and Rallitek. There are a ton of guys local to you swapping engines for racing and you just need to hook up with them to get access to clips...

I was saying they have to get the cars to AZ where they are, check and see who they use. I should have typed that differently.

I would stay away from "Overnite Shipping" trucking co., but any truck company can do it. I paid $600ish for a 1200lbs clip from California to NY.
