Talking Am I being too harsh?

I have my LQ4 shorty posted in our section as well as the open classifieds and I'm telling you guys.... what a ******* nightmare!!! Click the image to open in full size. Click the image to open in full size. Click the image to open in full size.

It's like they think it will cost $50 or something to ship the God Damn thing! So I just posted this...

Let me know if I was too harsh

I hunt and hunt to find the best price and in the end I get told that it's too much... Well those that may be interested in the block, I'm making it quite clear NOW.... It WILL cost more than $50 to ship this thing!

PLEASE use some common since before you PM me about shipping.... It's going to cost you $250+! So PLEASE don't waste my time if you can't grasp the concept of shipping a 400lb engine!

I don't mean to be a dick, but I have gotten quotes now for 8...EIGHT...VIII...OCHO... AKHT...HACHI....8 people and all I can assume is they were expecting $50 to ship or something... who knows. And for each of those 8 people I called at least 4 different shippers to find the best price; that's 24 calls with an average call time of 10 min.... that's 4 HOURS!!! So again I ask.... please think about the situations and expect an answer accordingly.

END RANT/

Is it to heavy to greyhound freight it? Just wondering. I will say 250+ seems like a lot for freight shipping. I sold a LT1 car to someone and they paid 550 to ship the entire car back to Chicago. I know it's apples to oranges but just saying...

Average cost to ship an engine is between 250 and 600. Depends on who you talk to. The last iron headed big block I shipped cost 300 and thats only because i got a deal from the shipping company for doing so much business with them.

Yeah way too heave for GH. the prices are all over the place, and distance matters of course, but if there is any real distance it starts at $250+

Cars are different... I shipped my car for less that I shipped a few motors so I'm not sure how they figure it all out.
