Hi, I have found some good deals for used equipment from several far away locations and needed some advice on a good (and hopefully inexpensive) freight shipping company. I'v checked with UPS and other major shippers like Conway but they are pretty expensive so I'm hoping that someone has experience with this and could recommend something. Thanks!

Shipping is always expensive,all the big companies are very very busy for the Xmas season,they will not offer you any discount at this time,some only ship 150# or less.
I have a video arcade game business,I use Beltmann/North American Vanline 1800-959-8880 to ship games,they charged $330-350 to ship one or 2 item the same price,as long as under 500#,door to door,they have great service,they will even pack,insure for $1500 are included in the shipping price.
I also hire local handymen with truck,trailer move machines for me ,cost about $1.5-2 a miles.
