    I just quoted a single 350lb pallet LTL and got responses from $350-$650 for the 600 mile trip. I would budget about $2k to ship this from NH to TX. I wouldn't be surprised if it was $2500. It will fit on a double size pallet, but the pallet needs to be sturdy. Preferably steel reinforced and boxed. Pallet alone could cost $500.

    Good/OK long haulers are guys who haul farm tractors. A small lathe like this would be an easy haul.

    One of the best recommendations because all issues are known..not like buying from a guy flipping a machine he has fired up for 5 minutes/or not at all.

    Just to let people know if you ship via OTR normal box semi-truck they have introduce extra fees for oversize loads. Up to a $1000 per crate. So make sure you the exact size for your quote if you use that type of carrier. I do like the lathe.

    If it is boxed and tarped, may be able to hot shot it on a flat bed. I just wish it were closer cause it would be mine already.

    For that kind of money I could fly out, rent a U-Haul and drive it back myself. Holy cow.

    Don't misunderstand, I am not saying that you're wrong... but if you're right, I would have to move it myself.

    I'm still toying with driving up over the holidays. 1260 miles each way.

    Attached is a pic of how i moved the mill i recently purchased. But it only had to travel 50 miles on a sunny afternoon.

    Maybe it will sell in the next week, and make the decision for me.

    My Clausing is off to a new home.
    The guy was in town so no problem with shipping.

    @mr cnc guy What is the approximate weight of the lathe, and do you a means to load to a low deck 10.4k equipment trailer?

    Your lucky the straps made it that far on a sharp edge!

    Another thing on the straps, you would have been better off going over the top of the ram creating an x pattern than going around the top of the column......when you use the straps that way, the ratchet side is tighter than the other side, it will cause the machine to wiggle until the force is equal!

    Straps are used as chokers at top of mill. They were to limit tip only. Base was chained and boomers were still tight at end of trip. The edge of table was chamfered, but i should have padded it. Thanks for noticing.

    ^^^ grab yourself some carpet strips. protect the machine from chains, and your straps from the machine^^^^

    If not for yourself, do it for the machine.

    Thanks, great idea. But this machine is in place in the shop, the next move will not be by me. I'll keep that in mind for next piece of equipment i purchase.

    Understood it's already home, but it's bearing the scars of being chained..... Better hope it doesn't want reparations for itself, or future generations.....
