R&L carriers if you have an account has rates that can be $150-$250 for the freight charge. (nearly anywhere except downtown NYC) I typically have a place put an arcade or pinball on a palette and wrap it with bubble wrap and cardboard and then strap it down for about $60 per machine. I have shipped some virtual pins which I build to California and further for under $300 including packing. R&L is worth checking out, but again.. you HAVE to setup an account with them or the rates will blow. There is no obligation or fee to have an account though.
