Planning a trip this coming Jan to Arizona and am thinking about getting some of my Pontiac parts out of storage and back to northern California. One of the parts is a 1965 WT. 389 from a GTO. We'll be in my wife's suv (she doesn't want to take the trip in a truck). So it's either rent a one way U-haul, or think about shipping. Anyone have suggestions on shipping or have done this before? Hate to pull a trailer all that way. Like the song says "I can't drive 55". Thanks Ron
Yup, all things I've thought about. Her answer....."The GMC. is too big, the Ford is too small, I don't want to smell an engine in my car." etc. etc. etc. Maybe it's my chance of talking her into letting me buy a new truck that's "just right". LOL!
I used Fastenal to ship 600 lbs. of engine parts from San Antonio, TX to Minnesota. The price was $175. A transmision core from NYC to MN was $100
The engine builder will ship the completed engine and trans to me here in SA. Expecting to pay $250. Your local Fastenal will need to have a fork lift and be able to load somehwere other than an 18-wheeler dock.
Times aren't guaranteed, it gets moved around on their trucks as loads permit. Took about a week for each of the two cases I dealt with.
