I agree, that quote is outrageous. Check around. R&L is usually pretty reasonable. If the quarters are going to be dropped at someone's residence instead of a "terminal" type place it will cost more. But not that much.

When I had full floor pans shipped from Rick's ( Ga ) to NY they were about $150 or so as I recall. You refer to'overnight'. Is that part of the pricing or their title?!

Call "Ricks" (800-359-7717) and get a quote from them.

I had "quarters" shipped to Az and it cost me less than $100 bucks.

Iíve think you can ship large items by bus fairly cheap.

Try the bus lines, I received both of the fenders for my car on the bus,a lot cheaper than truck frieght. You will have to go to the bus station to pick it up. Greg P

I drove from Nashville TN to Graham NC in a day and a half to pick mine up with my trailer, 800 miles and just the price of gas.

Living in hawaii you get to deal with your own special set of problems. Like too much sunshine, surf, bikinis and expensive everything.

I'm freezing my arse off right now. It's probably a smooth 75 degrees at your place right now. Keep complaining.
