Shipping Questions

Hey Guys! Off the cougar subject. Do any of you have any suggestions on the easiest way to ship a transmission? UPS, FedEx? Or is it easier to go through somebody else? Thanks in advance!!!

Use UPS freight or FedEx freight if desired for those two. Regular LTL (less than truck load) carriers like USF Holland, Yellow, etc, are probably cheaper but sometimes have limited coverage.

Ups/ fed ex freight is serious money. I sold an interior and the buyer sent ups freight, the bill was $1400 for the pallet

We ship them in 2 boxes ups ground. This assumes you have one with a removable bell housing. Make sure you use an account with a friend or something, the retail rate can be double.
