Often times, a potential transaction (like say the aquisition of a
massive power transformers) are prohibitive simply due to the high
cost associated with freight...
I run a small business and I get a lot of our equipment through
eBay. I've found frieghtquote.com to be very helpful in arranging
frieght that doesn't cost an arm and a leg (just a half of an
arm). Now, it often goes through several hands and may take a couple
of weeks to get half-way across the USA, but you can have fast or
you can have affordable (not both). I'm not saying it's going to be
CHEAP... For example, a 1000 pound biological safety cabinet from
phoenix to columbus ohio for about $400.
By the way, one way to hold down cost is to have it delivered to a
business with a loading dock on your end. They charge a lot more
for a truck with a lift gate to a residence. Once it's on the
loading dock you can have a friend with a pickup truck help you, or
get a auto wrecker with a roll-back do it for about $50. I use the
local moving company's loading dock and they just charge me a few bucks.
I am not associated with frieghtquote.com, nor am I going to receive
any recompense or discount for this comment.
