Getting My Goodies from Washinton to PA.


Recommended Posts

I purchased a parts lot that were removed from a 1925 Standard coupe destined to be street-rodded. The entire engine driveline plus the seats and all.

 Along with this came a "mystery box" mostly full of 1925 Master Parts.

I sprung for this because there were the 22" wheels which sometime in the past mine were changed out to 21". The owner started to restore the car but changed his mind. He also bought 5 new 600X22 tires tubes and flaps.

 Everything had to come as a package deal. Unfortunately it was located in Bend Oregon. Enter Mark Shaw from Vancouver WA. Mark offered to bring all back to his Buick Barn and sort thru for me. He and "Oregon Desert" spent a day of unpacking, sorting and taking photos.

Mark has already sent some of the parts I did not need onto other worthy Buick Brothers.  Several were in need of some things in Cal. and Texas. The most challenging process for him was removing the wheels from the rear axle. Then to save space the 75+ rear old FISK tires were removed from the rims. I had to send him my wheel puller and it was still a trial

Much work later he has the axle knocked down and all packed in a 4" square crate. Then filling the remaining space with all the smaller parts that I wanted. Mark still has the engine/transmission, interior seats, springs, front axle and associated hangers there.

 Trying to get a good estimate as to shipping across country I needed a final crate size. He suggested that he also strap the 5 new tires to the top of the box.  Final size  4'X4'X4'. I call him the CUBEMASTER!  Now I just have to find a freight carrier to get it from the Left coast to the Right coast.

Another great example of Buick Brothers in action. 
 

I had a similar find for a 1923 drivetrain and parts a few years back.  By the time I got to it the engine had been sold but I got the rest as they say and many of the parts not needed by me found new homes too.

And ...

 

I once ‘owned’ an engine I actually never saw, that Mark Shaw found and he tore it down for me and shipped me the needed parts and parted the rest. 
 

Well done (again) Brother Shaw !

One option would be to look into Fastenal as a cheaper alternative for shipping rather than say UPS.  Fastenal uses their empty trucks returning from making deliveries to their store network to daisy chain shipments for hire.  Container has to be firmly secured to a pallet.  Weight limit is something like 1500lbs.  Pickup and delivery is at your local store on each end.  I used them to ship my engine to Harkin-Arcola in Minnesota from Maine and back. 

Good luck and stay healthy.

Fastenal is not taking shipments right now; I already checked...

Y'all may want to give YRC a try. They've been low price and no problems for me twice when shipping crates to the west coast from GA. Door to door.  You may can get a better price if you register, I did. Warning, no body is cheap.

Larry, 

    These are a couple of companies that I have considered using for shipping.  I know you have tried several of these already.

Fastenal

Fed Ex Smart Post (not a regular fed ex shipment but a slower method)

busfreighter.com (probably too big for this company)

U ship

U haul ships their 4 x 4 x 6' boxes, but I don't know if they will take your box.

Larry,

If you haven’t settled on anything yet let me know and I’ll get you a price shipped commercial to my work in Carlisle where you can pick it up. We get good rates. I’ll need a weight estimate and where Mark will be shipping it from.

Larry, Check with Steve Hammatt,

 

He will possibly be driving in to Hershey if you're not in a hurry

I love optimism!  At this point we can assume Hershey is still on, but if this crisis lingers a lot of plans can change!

 

Everybody stay safe....

Thanks , David,

 

With all we're facing,

at home,

in our community,

in the hobby,

nationally,

worldwide,

optimism may become a needed commodity -

 

Hope you and all your family are well

Thanks Marty. But Steve is no longer going to travel out east. I have the shipment at the depot ready for transport from Portland OR.Thanks to Mark Shaw and "Midman" on the forum. These forum friends are the best!

I too want to thank Mark Shaw for all the pick up, photos, organizing, packaging and delivery.  I received my box today, and it was a miniature of Larry's big box.  Just crammed full of Buick fun.   Mark went above and beyond to help his Buick buddies out and I sincerely appreciate all the extra effort.  Thanks Mark.      Hugh
