I am trying to get some engine parts (rotating assembly, block) shipped to me in Los Alamos. The difference in shipping directly to my private residence and shipping to a business (that has a forklift or some other means of unloading the pallet) is quite a bit. I was wondering if any of the guys on this board have some connections to some of the businesses in town where I could get this shipped to. If so, would you be willing to help me out so that I could save some coin?
If it is going to be delivered to a place that has a forklift, then yes, they will just show up and it will have to be unloaded. After that, if it is fairly local, I will come down and pick it up with my pickup the same day or possibly the next day. The high side estimate of weight that the machinist gave me was 650 lbs. He said that it will probably be less, but he always guesses high on his initial shipping estimates.
