    I shipped one coast to coast a few months ago via UPS. I did put it in a box. Iirc it was $150.

    The 700 is a heavy trans. I had one shipped from Fl to Nj via Fedex Freight. Came from the shipper's dock to the nearest Fedex freight depot and I picked it up there. Was bolted to a small pallet and the cost was $150 IIRC. Good luck.

    Damn, UPS quoted me yesterday $225 to ship a dash pad for a 82-91 Blazer.
