Well, shipping depends on where, its about 150 and up. it also has to be packed and shipped right or they wont take it. I would get some wood from home depot and 2 buy 4. about 12 to 15 bucks, place 2 peaces between floor to hold in place from sliding, wrap ends with plastic and tape off. Mark box, to keep it facing the way you packed it when carring, also cut holds to carry by but they will use a hand truck. I would let the one who needed it pay for the shipping. Good luck!
