on his return trip the speakers he will be picking up at my house are quite a bit larger ( 81 K-horns ) to deliver them to Larry in Tenn.

We talked briefly about the rest of his trip and his return with the Khorns. He is quite a generous man.  Great that Larry was interested in your K's too. Always nice to see your loved ones go to good homes.

Looking to see if anyone is coming from the St. Paul MN are towards the east side of Wisconsin any time soon.  I have a couple of klipsch pro speakers and a sub being help for me.  I would be willing to give some money for your time!

Has anyone here ever shipped a set of K-horns?

I posted my Speakerlab  Klipschorn clones for sale on craigslist and got a call from a guy in Ohio who wants them really bad but I'm out on the West coast in Washington state.

Is it crazy to even think of shipping these beasts out there?

I tied UPS and FedEx shipping calculators but didn't have much luck trying to get a price.

I can palletize them but I don't have a forklift to put them in my pickup so I guess I'd need to have a carrier with a liftgate and pallet jack pick them up.

I was a little surprised to get a call from someone that far away but after a chat I'm sure he is genuine and not a scammer.

I'm thinking shipping costs may well be a deal breaker but if someone has found a way and done it before I'm all ears.

You might try Old Dominion trucking.

I've had alot of big stuff shipped to me all the way up to Maine so there are people out there who will do whatever it takes to get what they want. I've had 8 MWM bass bins, complete KP600 system, 2 tuba tht subs, 402 horns, 4 pairs of Cornscala's, Jubilee's. .. all shipped to me.

 

I used Uship for alot of it and only had one bad experience shipping the KP600's, the dude thought he could load them on a box truck "dock high" by himself. 

 

Mike.

I've boxed and shipped a pair. You need to be able to build a wood crate to put them in and set it on a pallet.  Really, the only decent way you can make this happen for a reasonable cost is if you have a friend that works at a place with a doc and they can load and ship them with a forklift.  The eliminates the high cost of having a lift gate truck with a pickup at a private residence.  A local sale is much easier...

Thanks,I pretty much came to that conclusion myself so it's not likely going to happen. I just don't have time for it and I live out in the sticks 30 miles from the city.

Too bad ,had a guy that really wanted my Speakerlab Super K's but he's in Ohio and I'm in Washington (state).
