    Hey everyone we are thinking of listing a small chipper shredder on ebay. But before we do we wanted to know how we would go about shipping this item. Thanks for all help and info in advance.

    Look in your local yellow pages for the nearest freight company.
    Shipping items fall into different categories and these categories have a price associated with each one. Meaning if you call three or four different companies, the shipping quote you receive shouldn't vary widely at all.
    Personally I recommend Estes but they don't "go" everywhere.
