Default Shipping Transmission Company?

All,

I am trying to find reasonable prices for shipping larger components like transmission, transfer case, etc. UPS, FedEx are all pretty high in cost (normally around $200-250). Any ideas?

I've used Fastenal a couple of times. A transfer case and a pallet of drive shafts. 4 drive shafts and a stub shaft cost more to ship than the transfer case.
I think it was $75 to get the case and $100-120 for the shafts, longer/bulkier load.

It's great if both parties have a local Fastenal and one of you has an account.
