Smile Shipping Question

I want to have a big rack case shipped to me.
UPS wants $160+ dollars to ship it to me.
Does anyone have any suggestion on how to do this for less money?
Trucking company or???
The Post Office won't do it, it's over 75 lbs. and Fedex is no cheaper than UPS.

Re: Shipping Question

You could try getting a quote from a freight company like Yellow or ABF, but I really doubt they'd be any cheaper than UPS. You might also research to see if there are any local private couriers in the area around you and where the item is located now, that may be your best shot for a deal if they can get it on a truck with other items. Unfortunately with large or bulky items you end up paying more to ship.
