    There is an used machine I want to buy, price is great but it located in Hialeah fl, and I am in Charlotte, nc. I just want to ship the head.
    The stats for the head are:
    100 lbs
    Dimensions 19l x 8w x 18h all inches.

    Not sure it has to be crated, I have never done one like this and neither does the seller.

    Rather that just do a google for freight companies I rather first ask here to see if someone with experience with this can lead me in the right path. The few search I have found were really expensive and I continuously see sellers quoting freight under $200 for these machines with the same dimensions...

    Thanks!

    Strapped to a skid should be ok. Try FedEx Freight or FedEx Ground for a quote, or UPS Freight.

    The cheaper quotes are from yrc and fedex. With yrc is about is around $130 and I can ship 2 machines for the same price. Fedex is about 10 cheaper but can only ship one. I might end up getting 2 so that might be the deciding factor, waiting on the seller now...

    Thanks everyone, still not set so if anyone thinks of a different place let me know...
