There is a pair of EV horns in Phoenix, shipping is going to kill me.  So if anyone is traveling from Phoenix and going through the Omaha area, I could use some help. 

 

Let me know, there will be some cash in it for you.

Do to size, shipping via ups will run about $220.00

You may be lucky enough to find someone, but realistically that's probably what you'll pay no matter what.

 

You may want to check out Greyhound Bus.

 

They also haul cargo, limited weight.    Lars

Don't know how you priced, Maybe think of a friend w a UPS or Fedex account.

 

If your price was full boat, on account it could be, not sure, maybe at least 30% less.

 

Don't quote me on that, just what I've experienced.   Lars

Which model EV horns, if you don't mind me asking? Unfortunately I'm not near there.

You may find Greyhound has ,I think, a different pricing structure than most.

 

They can haul a package as large as a couch,but limited to 100 lb.

 

IOW, I think they charge more by weight than ft cubes.

 

Not sure.  Lars

As for a box, in some other thread a forum member suggested a Uhaul Washer/ dryer box.

 

An idea.  LKars

Uhaul also sells wardrobe boxes.  I have used these to ship EV HP640s to Canada with no problems.  The Greyhound idea isn't a bad one.  I would have to see if the seller would be willing to do that.

 

Hopefully you can work something out.

 

If it doesn't, no big deal.  I do know where there are a few pairs here locally, however the seller wants more than what it would cost me for these with shipping included.

Looks like they are about $125.00 for the pair.  Not bad, not bad at all.

I wish that was on that path to help. calhockey10 is holding a pair of HUGE EV horns for me. I would do the same for other members. Hopefully this will work for you.

So, at quick study, it seems Fastenal may be least expensive, but require sturdiest packing.

 

And of course, you have to have a Fastenal store near both partys.

 

Greyhound, seems to me , less packing, maybe moew $ than fastenal.

 

And still, need Grayhound terminal by both ends.

 

Uship, most expensive but still very reasonable, residence door to door, and NO packing required.

 

If a suitable for the load Driver is found, they blanket wrap and are careful.

 

I would be afraid Fastenal may treat it as a pallet of bolts.   My thoughts,  Lars

We should start a shipping/freight thread.  This is good info for those that don't have extremely heavy objects.

 

Fastenal did state that it didn't have to have a complete crate, however it wouldn't be covered under insurance.

And UPS and FEDEX, most spendy, AND with wight limits that preclude stuff like K horns and LaScalas.    Lars
