I would put more insurance on it. They lost my banshee engine which I only got $200 in insurance for. Wish I would have done 5k!

That aint a bad price. UPS shipped my 80Lb banshee engine for $92 and some change

ups can ship the 150 lbs, is it 146 packaged or 146 without the packing.

If you ship ups I would definitely insure it, 150lbs is alot of weight it might get beat up a little in the system though.

i checked it once at 150lbs.

Reg shipping was 200
Freight was 250

Fedex ground is $116 with 1000$ insurance.

Dont get me wrong I love UPS but sometimes they can be really pricy for no apparent reason
