What Freight Companies for Shippping Big/Heavy shit???

No not shit literally, but stuff like axles, engines, transmissions, tc's, etc... I have an axle I need to ship and I'm not sure which company to go with. Suggestions? Anyone ship an axle before? Just put it on a pallet and strap it? What about the other big/heavy things?

When I was looking at shipping a motorcycle the shipper offered a discount if there was a loadind and unloading dock. You can ask your company if you can ship it from thier freight dock.

Check with an LTL Carrier, I work for SAIA, the best way to ship an axle (if you want it in one peice, is to crate it...the better the packaging the better it'll ship without damages.. but if it's a used axle, it'll get a price value rated at a used part, which isn't much...but strapping it to a pallet will work but no guarantees of it not being damaged by the time it gets to it's destination. I see it first hand it's what I do for a living...
