Shipping a gearbox interstate

Who here has had engine parts shipped overstate? Who did you send them through? Which companies can you recommend?
I need a gearbox shipped from queensland to melbourne and cant seem to find anyone to do it for a reasonable price.

Thanks guys

Thanks guys
Jack has already been PM'd.
Ill give Toll a call, that is way cheaper than any other quote I have got so far.

Anyone else?

Re: Shipping a gearbox interstate

Nice, im gonna have to get around to that one day. Did you get the internals rebuilt? Youll definitely need it when the GT35 comes on boost

Re: Shipping a gearbox interstate

Nah, I want to see how it goes on standard internals first if it dies Ill replace it. No use in fixing what aint broken. Plus this way I dont need to wait another 6 months to have a fast car.

Anyone know of any other places?
Toll quoted me $240 and I havent found any cheaper yet.

Re: Shipping a gearbox interstate

Wouldn't recommend Toll...I've dealt with them twice, I had them transport a car from Cairns to Adelaide and they didn't strap it properly inside the truck, the car got heavily damaged on the way down here, when I went back at them for re-imbursement they pretty well refused to take my calls.
