Question

I found a 12 bolt posi with 3.31 gears just like I want for sale in the classifieds on here. Problem is, it's in New York and I'm in Dallas. Anybody know how about much it would cost to ship a rear end that far, and the best shipping company to use? Bob (mobiletools), I know you ship a lot of your stuff yellow freight, right? I remember you shipping somebody a roof that way. Any ideas on how much this would cost? And how does yellow freight work, do they only pick up and deliver at a business? Thanks for the help all, I've only shipped smaller stuff before, and I don't know if it's prohibitively expensive to ship larger parts.

Just to give you a rough idea. I bought a transmission from California and it was shipped to here in South Carolina for $150.00. Consolidated Freight was the carrier. If you could get the seller to strap it to a pallet that would make it a lot easier. I did have it delivered to my work, you never know when the truck will show up. You may be able to pick it up at their local terminal. The problem would be unloading without a dock. It's a good drop down from the back of the truck and those guys aint about to strain any muscles.

I bought a 12-bolt BU code 3.73 posi out of a '69 Z/28 in Texas and had it shipped to me in Oregon. It was only $135 but the seller delivered it to his local terminal strapped to a pallet and it was delivered to my work and our business does have a discount with the carrier (Consolidated Freightways).

Good Luck

No 'E'

I shipped a tow bar from MO to TX and it was roughly $100 on Roadway. A rearend is much larger and heavier than either a tow bar or tranny. I think you'd be looking at a couple hundred bucks real easy. If you give the trucking company the zip codes (to & from) and approx. weight/size I would think they could give you a ballpark estimate. Nice find on the rearend!!

Thanks for the info guys! That's about the price range I expected, but I hadn't thought about all the issues with unloading at a dock, etc. I guess I'll have to pass on this one and try to find something locally instead. In the meantime I'll just keep on creeping down the highway with my 4.10s! I actually drive faster on the highway in my Escort than I do in my Camaro, LOL!

Hmmm, just remembered that my grandpa used to drive for Roadway, I wonder if he still has some connections and could get me a deal! Ah, probably not.

I had a rear shipped from New Jersey to Georgia for $60 on Consolidated. It was strapped to a pallet and I picked it up at the terminal by myself w/no problems. The seller deliverd it to the terminal and it was a discounted rate.

Wow, that's pretty cheap! How much does a rear end weigh all together? I was trying to estimate the shipping costs from Roadway's and Consolidated's websites, but I also had to enter a freight class, and I had no idea what to use. Anybody know?

Thumbs up

If you send me your address and the senders address I can get a price from Yellow Freight.
With my Tool Business, all of the shipping is out of NY. I use UPS and Yellow. I would need the total weight (rough guess) when it is strapped to the pallet. We have an account with Yellow and I have had many items picked up and delivered to my house when I was building my 69. If you can pick up the item at a terminal it will be less.
I've shipped 2 roofs recently by Yellow.
Let me know.

The rear is mine, I am in Hyde Park NY zip code 12538..I am not sure where the closest yellow freight termial is. I can put the rear on the pallet and bring it to the terminal if it is a reasonable distance.

drptop70ss, If Ben is not going to get your rear, I am interested! What are the numbers and dates on the rear? I'm in NJ, so I would be able to pick it up or meet you halfway.

I'd like a close dated one for my SS May 69 car. I have a 1968 model one now.

Email me if you want to talk offline. Thanks, Kevin

Hey, I've got dibs Kevin! Just joking. Really, I'm still interested, I'm just looking into all the details on shipping. ssdanny69 has offered to help me pick up the rear at the shipping terminal in his pickup, so that'll save a few bucks. Bob, could you check how much it would cost to ship via Yellow from the closest terminal to Hyde Park, NY to the terminal in Dallas? If there's more than one here, then try one on the northeast side of town, near Richardson, zip code 75080. I think the rear end weighs about 200 lbs, right? I've never pulled one off before. Thanks for the help so far guys!

Guys,
I have someone somewhat local (ct) that was first caller on the rear, and he wants to send me a deposit. If that doesnt work out I will let you all know..I knew these rears were popular but not THIS popular! I should know all within a few days. I will email you individually as not to waste space here. Thanks!

Yellow gave me a rough price of 300.00 for a 400lb skid. This is a price that is picked up at a res. address and droped off at a res. address.
It sounds high to me. I'm sure a terminal pick up would be cheaper.
