Shipping with STI will run you about $450 shipping across country. They insure and pickup at your door which is convenient. However, if you are willing to do a little more work on your own you can save some money. I took my machine to a store called Fastenal, which is a national chain. I put the machine on a pallet and wrapped it at the store. Cost to ship from San Diego to Nebraska is $200 plus a $25 pallet fee. They don't insure unless you enclose the machine in a wooden crate. However, if you wrap it well enough this shouldn't be necessary. Just another option if you have accessibility.
