    Engine Shipping Service

    Anyone shipped an engine here?

    I got a 787 Rotax long block that is for sale, and trying to get info on shipping cross country and overseas.

    TIA
    Mike

    I have used the UPS store to ship an engine. I crated it up myself, then brought it over to them. I think it was about $80 to ship my Ultra 150 (1200cc 3cyl) from NJ to MD.

    that engine will go ups no problem. the limit is 150 lbs. make a small crate from wood and wrap it in cardboard. make sure you insure it for full replacement cost, and not just the sale price.

    I'm thinking about getting an engine crate from a parts manager at a Seadoo dealer.

    As far as weight, should be between 90-100 pounds.
    The box should be around 24x24x30.

    It's going to Malaysia from 91709. That's if the shipping price doesn't break the deal...

    Is it cheaper to ship to residence or business?

    Business is way cheaper. No shipping out of the country will cost you a little more than inside the US.
    Get with John at Unishippers (04gtxsc); he can give you the best advice or even do it for you.

    I did, he's helping me with it...

    I just wanted to know if anyone here had actually shipped an engine and who they used.

    I started the thread while waiting for John to respond to my PM.
    Got a little anxious...

    I hear you. I used the addicted method and shipped one from Texas to the northeast coast. We had no problems. John will take care of you, good luck.

    Not sure. I have only shipped cylinders and small stuff like that out of the US and I used the USPS for that.
    I am concerned that you do not have it insured for enough money though. I would check on line for a NEW long block and use that as the insured value.
