Finding reasonable Shipping for heavy, crated speakers to ship cross-country


Would any of you fellow Audiogoners give me advice in finding reasonable shipping rates for two crated speakers, 140 lbs each. UPS quoted $375 and FedEx online showed $310. I originally received them a dozen years ago for shipping cost of about $175 on a truck with a moving shipper with a bunch of other folks items of course.

try typing "heavy shipping" in the search box. There are many threads on this.
Plycon transportation group is what I use 😃

FedEx ground gives HUGE discount on ones who open an account with them so instead of $310 you will get away with near half quoted online.

Another way is to accept bids from insured professional companies via uship.com which is I guess somewhat similar to piggybee
Thanks to all of you. Gosh I love Audiogoners, you guys are great!  Czarivey I'm going to head to FedEx and open an account and see what happens. Thanks. Erik
