IF whoever you are purchasing OR is handling the shipping of the axle can strap it down to a pallet??? ANY motor freight company will be able to handle that with NO problem. Old Dominion, R&L Carriers, Estes, UPS Motor Freight, Fed Ex Motor Freight. Should not be any issue for them at all. Its been since 2004 but Fed Ex Freight got a 32 V8 engine from So Cal to me here in No Fla in 3 days, no problems....it was bolted to a pallet!!!!




JUST Make damn sure they tape off the drive shaft end and axle ends really really good for protection AS the terminal fork lift drivers will beat the ever lovin' ends IF you don't!!!

Yes it’s already inside a crate. I’m in Australia, just need it shipped to Los Angeles and then easy to Australia.

Look for a freight forwarder in your area. he can make a connection with various freight companies (or a independent operator) to get your package to its destination.

Is trulyvintage still doing runs? He is running around the country all the time. He might be taking a load that way. Worth a try anyways. Great guy.



Call or text Jim @ 260-804-6695


Up coming schedule from his site. I'd call though, sure he can stuff an axle in if they are going that way.

Thanks everyone. It looks like this is sorted. A big thanks to a fordbarner whom I shall not name unless he’s ok if I do.
