Has anyone had experience shipping large and heavy (speakers) cross country? Which haulers did you use and what was the pricing like. Did they pick up from private home and deliver to private home? Any insights would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks.

Matthew

I just shipped a set of Carver Tube amps, weighing 400lbs packed
from Ottawa to Seattle business both ends, with Fedex Freight

Cost was $1000.00 usd

Shipping time 6 days.

I've used U-Ship to ship a ~125# pound amp from Calgary to here. Total cost was .... $75.00 and the driver brought the amp right into the house.
