Shipping an engine?

Does anyone have any shipper recommendations for shipping an engine?

Thanks

Fed Ex now does overnight freight!! They have been letting us try their overnight freight shipping! We had another office ship us a 2,000lb box overnight last week. Could you imagine the shipping cost!

If it's a used engine they wont let you ship it by air. I used freight-master. Strap it down good on a pallet send it off. Good Luck
