Go to freightcenter.com they will give you a bunch of diff options of carriers and prices, it's always cheapest to personally take it to the companies dock on a skid, then have it delivered to a dock or if the person you are shipping to has a forklift it'll save money. If you have to have it picked up at a residence and delivered that requires a lift gate prepare to pay for it
Hope this helps
I have shipped two transmissions and 3 motors over the past two weeks so I know a little lol

Try freightquote.com. I've shipped a couple engines and a shifter kart using them. The last engine I shipped I went straight to the Estes dock and got quoted some outrageous price, like $500 or something. So I called Freightquote and somehow they managed to get my motor shipped through the same Estes dock for less that 1/2 the price.
The shifter kart I shipped a couple years ago was damaged in shipping (Global Express I think it was) and Freightquote came through and refunded the damages.
I've only shipped a handful of large items like this but it seems like there is almost always something that ends up damaged in shipping. Maybe it's just my bad luck but make sure you pay the few extra bucks for the insurance.
427ci stroker died at 173,000 miles...what a great engine that was, built by the late, great - Dave DiLuca...RIP...
