What do you guys think about shipping SDA 1C's? I'm talking to a fellow Polkie about a possible purchase, although he lives in Indy, I live in Florida. The speakers are in an ad pasted on here, I trust the seller. He's upgraded them on many levels, which I would've done sometime in the future anyway. I know he did a good job on doing the xover upgrades - he's more than qualified with his job description. And they seem to be in pretty good shape. But, I'm worried about attempting to ship them across the country....and, unfortunately, it's getting out of my budget. And, he already has them at a great price (considering all the upgrades). He too is legitimately concerned about getting them packed well enough to avoid damage from the gorillas.
I found a thread recently of a recommended company for shipping large speakers (Team Worldwide). They gave me a quote of about $190 with insurance. Only about $20 more than FedEx.
What are your guys thoughts
BTW, I don't trust "Oops" or FedEx enough for items this heavy.
