The cost of truck shipping for larger items is a real problem now. We try to find a reasonable trucking line, but the rates vary greatly. Depends on the location, and whether the trucking company has a terminal local to where the part is being shipped, or if they have to turn it over to a local shipping company for final delivery. Also sometimes it is better to have it held at their terminal close to you, and you pick it up there.

No offense if you can find a local fabricator to avoid the big shipping cost. Fed Ex ground is still the best for smaller parts, and sometimes flat rate priority mail works best.

Freight costs bother me as much as they do you.
