Looking for shipping service

I've located a set of front and rear fenders and running boards for my '40 half ton. I need to get them from Oklahoma to Southern California. Does anyone know of a shipping company that would do this that wouldn't charge thousands of dollars?

Thanks,
Joe

From experience, I urge you to NOT use a bus line service. Car parts are not covered by the insurance offered and the entire service experience is a nightmare!

If the seller will crate them up for you, an LTL trucking line would be your best bet. They know how to handle freight. I've had a front 4x4 axle shipped from PA to Alaska for about $300, although that was a long time ago. The part from PA to Washington was by YRC Freight.

I have used Fastenal Blue Lane Freight [fastenal.com] for fenders and engines.
Your very fortunate to find fenders and running boards for that old gal.

Too bad you didn't locate them back in the spring of '19. I made a big road trip then and OK to CA were on the route, and I had room in the trailer at the time.

Look into uShip.com. I'm using them to ship a complete bench seat from a 1948 3100 from Texas to California. The total cost was just under $350.

uShip connects hotshot drivers with loads from individuals. They pick up at your home and deliver to the recipient's home. They can haul so cheap because they combine loads. All you have to do is set up a possible shipment, include weight, dimensions, and photos, and then wait for haulers to bid on your load. The first bid was over $500.

The seat will be traveling in a box van, enclosed in shipping blankets, and tied down.

Thank you. They're in Bokchito, OK. Let me know if that's anywhere near where you're going.
