    Do you have a Fedex or UPS account? If not, open one, it's a lot cheaper with the account.
    Tailgate at your own risk.

    Re: Getting a Transmission shipped?

    I did register for a UPS account the other day. just putting in a fictitious shipment to check it out the price did come down by about $20 but its still not this sub $100 price everyone throws around. Fedex doesnt offer any savings unless your a business and doing alot of shipping, I do prefer them more though.

    Re: Getting a Transmission shipped?

    Does anyone know where to physically buy the Rubbermaid Roughneck Tote 35 Gallon container as pictured and described in this thread for shipping transmissions? I am having a difficult time locating a place with out have to pay shipping from online companies, for an empty container.

    Greatly appreciate anyone who know of a store name (i.e. ACE Hardware, WalMart, Target, etc.) and SKU # that carry these.

    Re: Getting a Transmission shipped?

    Anyone ship a tranny recently? I checked prices online and shipping a 555 from PA to WI is roughly $170 for fedex and $230 for UPS. Seems pretty insane, prices me out on shipping trying to sell this 555. Looks like it's local only.

    Home Depot was the only local place I could find one here. They've been redesigned and are now 37 gallons.

    Yeah, that sounds about right.

    What service was used? UPS? Fedex? You have an account?

    Opening an account with Fedex is free and shipping cost is at least 15% less. No reason not to.

    When you get your quote at FedEx, do not use the Freight option.
    I just quoted a 125# package from DFW to Holland, MI for $99.19 using FedEx Ground.
    I don't have an account.

    Maybe they're forgetting to tell you PA is under unofficial zombie quarantine, they don't want anything to get out.
