Shipping a large part

I would like to ship an heavy arb bumper and winch to another forum member (from New York to Florida). Does anyone have suggestions on how to do this economically? I'm seeing quotes around $400. Would like to do better if possible.

This. Much easier to do if you plan on actually attending any events in the future though, Scott.

I shipped a brush bar via the Grey Dog and it went very smooth. An ARB might be too heavy but I'd check.

i also just shipped a gearbox via YRC (formed by the merger of Yellow Frieght and Roadway) and they were awesome.

Greyhound will take it as long as its in a Box. I used them before for Large Bumpers and Complete front Car seats.

I've shipped multiple ARB bumpers via greyhound. I did not need a box. Cost was around $100. ARB is just under the weight limit of 100lbs. In other words, it won't go with a winch on it. That will have to go on its own via UPS etc.
