Freight recommendation for a teletype?

Mon Aug 17 20:35:51 CDT 2015

only think that  worries me  is  some guy in the suv   takes a liking to  
it and  "opps" he  says  "  someone  took it when I was in the restaurant!"

Thanks  Cory,

I listed it with UShip, and will wait to see what  happens.

This was a great idea, I never heard of such a 'crowd-sourced'  shipping 
service before.

the paper and tape  spindles are removed and preferably, that shipping screws 
anchor down the  chassis (though I have moved them without). With UShip, 
you set an asking  price with parameters, such as blanket wrap, or covered 
shipping. Everyone  from professionals to those with room to spare in their SUV 
can then ask  questions, accept the terms, or counter-offer. They don't get 
paid until  you've received the item and are satisfied. With items like 
this, I almost  prefer a private individual rather than a professional (bulk) 
mover.  -C
