Kevin, FWIW, a couple of years ago I ordered a 20x20 party tent from a business in Buffalo, NY. It was going to cost a fortune to have it shipped to me on Long Island. So, The place asks me if I am able to pick it up at a depot 10 miles from my house.
It was MUCH MUCH cheaper to get it shipped to Roadways' truck depot 10 miles from my house and me go there to pick it up. Easy too. When I picked it up they came out with the pallet on a forklift and put it right into the back of my truck.
Have you looked at shipping to a depot? Just a thought.
If it helps, you can buy me a beer next time we're together, If not, then I'll buy you one. Either way we'll be drinking!
