Re: Best way to ship a large jet from US

Not enough information. You need to find out the size of the packed case with length, wide and height plus the actual weight , ready to ship. Next step is to check with carriers that will handle that size . Is this an arf or all built up ? The better it can be broken down the better. Some jet fuses can be taken apart to shorten them.

If this is built up ready to fly ; I would suggest to plan your vacation to pick it up as it is not impossible to ship , but costly .

Another consideration is to ship it to a freight handing business in your nearest US state and pickup from there.

See if you have a forward air drop off anywhere near you. Probably the closest one is Toronto. Forward Air is about the only economical way of shipping large jets I've found. I had one shipped that way to me and drove down to seattle to pick it up. There is no economical way of shipping anything to Canada or in Canada anymore.

Further to Jeremy's post, check out shippingtoderbyline.com to avoid cross border shipping in your area. We have a similar service near our border crossing, the charges are reasonable and you save a bundle over cross border alternatives

Re: Best way to ship a large jet from US

Have it shipped to the US border and go pick it up. It's the only way unless you want to pay a fortune. Ask the seller to ship it Greyhound and pick up at a station near the border. Make sure he includes a sales recipe and ask if he will wright it up for about $800 or less if its believable. It will save you on the taxes/duties. Be sure he tapes it in a ziplock bag to the outside of the box so the customs goons can get at it easily.

Or! do as I'm doing and have the inlaws bring it back in their van
