i think your only choices are fedex or ups. DHL has pulled domestic services in the US

with the amount you are paying in shipping, wouldn't it be cheaper to find something local? Not to mention convenience.

cheapest way to ship it will likely be greyhound, but he will have to drop it off.

For packaging it would just need to be blanket or paper wrapped.

For UPS of FEDEX to ship, it will not be cheap, and it will need to be packaged as well.

its a 9 footer.

seen here http://www.discountramps.com/motorcycle-hitch-ramp.htm
it mounts on to your hitch its really nice. my dads friend is willing to give it to us if we pay for the shipping and have someone pick it up from his house. he no longer has a truck so he has no use for it.

shipping will be a lot i know but its worth it since the ramp is free

wasn't there a website where you can post items, their location, and the destination, and people bid on it? i can't seem to locate it.
