Old Dominion Freight Lines and R&L Carriers are both good freight companies that I deal with.

R&L support those who support racing.

Really though whoever you use it would be a good idea to make a thick plywood box as all carriers will break one from time to time.

or just go get a smaller pallet. I just shipped a c4 on a small 2x3 pallet and used some old tie down straps I had lying around, and then the yellow/roadway forklift operator let me use their plastic wrap to wrap up the whole thing after I brought it to the shipping terminal. A word of advice, you can usually save some money if you do business to business or even terminal to terminal. Sometimes there is no difference between the two, but there definitely if the trucking company has to either pick it up at a residence or has to deliver it to a residence. So be sure to ask the carrier. Also the business has to have a dock or a fork lift, not all the companies have trucks with lift gates. Just an FYI. I didn't have either at my business but luckily I lived near a terminal, so I just took it in my car and then assembled the pallet there. Pretty easy, just go prepared. Also make sure you weigh the parts. If you have a home scale you can weigh each piece and then subtract your weight out. It's not the most accurate but better than paying a huge fee because they did a re-weigh and found you to be under your estimate. Weigh the pallet as well.

It just depends on who you can get the best deal from AAA Cooper is very reasonable if you have an account with them. I use DB Schenker most of the time.
