Hi Lyle, We use a freight broker, all we do is give him the length by width by height by weight and the destination and they do the rest. From memory it cost us $80 just recently to freight a rear end from Melb to Bris just to give you an idea.
Wrap it up in plastic so they don't get there hands or trucks dirty. That thick stuff they use for garden mulch is good.
Still here. I've been a bit slack... If u are interested. I can send some pics via email or txt. I would be happy for around 2k for the pair. Let me know what u think
