    Considering the purchase of a 65" Mitsu from a member here and trying to get an idea of the freight cost. Would be from Utah to NY. Also, would it be safe to use UPS? or would they likely damage it?

    I was figuring arounf $300??

    It will need to be done truck frieght. Know anybody in the sending are that uses a lot of truck frieght???

    Soliciting their help would be the ideal way to go with it.

    $300 seems close....

    Thanks for the reply but you lost me when you said this:

    "Know anybody in the sending are that uses a lot of truck frieght??? Soliciting their help would be the ideal way to go with it."

    Not sure exactly what you mean. Are you just asking if I know anyone in the freight business??

    Yes.. should have read..

    Know anybody in the sending area that uses a lot of truck frieght to send stuff?"

    Sorry about that. I just find, places that use truck frieght get way way better quotes than the average joe person that calls them for a shipping quote is all.

    That is my point. I wouldn't be surprised if somebody that used them a lot from the area where it is comming from gets a $200 quote on it.

    Is that a terminal to terminal? Or to a residential curb? Are they packing it? Are they picking it up? Liftgate options? I've never shipped to UTAH before. Most of my terminal shipments in the US and Canada(The reciever has to pick it up)are under $400. I dont ship freight all too much, maybe 2 times max a year. I shipped a 400LB(crated) 70mm film projector/parts to myself for $300. I shipped with North American Van Lines some pinball machines about 600lb for $250 from NH to CA.

    Tony, that was door to door, actually the new set I am buying is coming from Ashburn VA which is about 5 hours from me. I think my best bet will be to rent a cargo van which is $170 for 2 days and just make a road trip on a Saturday to pick it up....
