If both parties have a Forward Air terminal near by, I would check with them. I've shipped V8 engines x-country for about 1/2 of what it would cost by truck freight. And a lot quicker. It's terminal to terminal not home delivery.

Greyhound is another option. It's still terminal to terminal, but there are Greyhound stops all over the place.

Fastenal is another option, if you're willing to crate the axle housing up completely.

I've shipped through both of these companies. Both have their pros and cons but their prices can't be beat for larger items.
