Need a delivery place for a motor

This my be a strange request but I need a anyone will let me have a gs 500 motor delivered to their place of business. Because of its weight UPS will only deliver it to a business. If its to a resident it has to be under 70 lbs. Is there any one on the NW side that I can use to for delivery? I'll give you $20 for you time.

If I find a place, it'll be a week for it to get here.

I know its a long shot but I thought i'd try any way.
Thanks,

Albert

They won't deliver to a house? I mean I could see them putting a restriction on apartments/condos and things liket hat but to refuse to deliver to a house seems rather strange. I say this because there are definitely people who run businesses out of their garage so how would they determine they were a business to allow that.

BTW I wasn't trying to be facetious. I was simply wondering too since I will be replacing the engine in the SV hopefully after this season... if not sooner. I am having issues when I shift from 3rd to 4th... so I guess I will fix that d*mned SV for good this time. Cheaper to replace the engine than split the case and repair it so interested in what it will take to get the new/newer engine to me.

Ask them to hold it at the doc for you to pick up. they will do that too.

It sounds liek someone cheaped out on shipping, I have a transmission and differential being delivered today from UPS, and it weighs 94 pounds according to the tracking docs.

They are taking it right to my house.

Usually i use Forward Air but this guy do not have anything close to him. This is what is causing all the problem. I'm super busy at work so Im having trouble finding time to make a couple of calls for shippers.

I just talked to UPS and they said it was not a problem shipping it.

Thanks to all the offers.

If they are going to receive it, do the courtesy of a reach around.
