    Has anyone ever shipped a full-sized, fully assembled Han in carbonite?

    I'm just wondering what kind of couriers would even take something like that and a ballpark price (say from Toronto or US East coast to the US West coast). I'm assuming you'd have to make the crate yourself as well...?

    Based on some large cross country shipments I've had, I'd bet $600 if you crate it yourself.

    I think UPS has an estimator.

    Look for a freight company.. Old Dominon, Daylight, UPS or FedEx freight.

    Make sure that your item is packed very well since this will likely be lifted and moved with a forklift. (Make sure it's inspected on delivery before letting the recipient sign off)

    You're looking at anywhere from 400 to 800 average depending on who you ship with.

    I've used all of these carriers in the past (working for a scooter importer) and always though OD provided the best service and Daylight the best cost.

    Thanks for the info guys. Messing with the rate tools for a few of those it does come out to $600-$800.
