Cheap shipping for heavy stuff

Yup, I think I found the solution for most peoples heavy/bulky shipping needs. Fastenal, the nuts and bolts store runs their own fleet of trucks and also ships things quite reasonably. I shipped an 800 pound motor on a pallet from Phoenix AZ to Virginia for $289. The guy at the store told me that they ship bumpers for some guy for $40 each every week.
The only catch is that it goes from store to store so you have to drop it off and the recipient has to pick it up. Most but not all stores have fork lifts so if it's heavy, call ahead.

Thanx Dave,
Just gave this a shot as I need to ship an engine and transmission from NOVA to Toledo. Put in a 60" X 48" X 36" crate at 750# with a $2000 value and they cam back at $175. That seems cheap as chips. They do ask if you have a Fastenal account and we do an buy quite a bit of stuff from them, so I'm not sure if that affects the pricing.

Wow that is pretty awesome. We have one in our town because of the mines. I will keep that in mind when I sell my 3.9, etc.
