I put mine on a pallet and strapped it down with some rachet straps. I backed my car trailer under the cherry picker and dropped her on there. It cost me 350 from CT to FL. Theres a highly reccomended engine builder in VA BTW.
I have shipped Several Items from TX to PA and from TX to NC, What you need to do is put it on a pallet secure it down. I use a small Pallet and then get metal strapping from Home Depot or Lowes. The shipping company Ive always found to be cheapest and offer the best service is Old Dominion. They can be 1/2 to 1/4 of the cost of other shipping companies. They will pick it up at your home or place of Business and drop ship it anywhere as well. You save serious cash if your able to drop it at their warehouse in your region. You save even more if you drop it at their warehouse and have the reciepiant pick it up at the warehouse.

Did my 01 GT twice. He has done some other guys on the boards.
Experience with SOHC, DOHC, 4.6s, 5.4s, pretty much everything.
No need to go across country. Call him or visit him. All I have to say is he knows these engines and he is a decent guy.
I won't go anywhere else for engine work.
