We ship engines all across the U.S. you need to have confidence in your product to ship outside of your neighborhood. We have been shipping engines for years. We go through an online shipping broker to give everyone the best price available.
When we ship the engine it will be on a pallet, we wrap it in visqueen strap the engine to the pallet using steel strapping. So the engine will not move anywhere during transportation. Then we build a box around the engine and strap it to the pallet so in transit it will have less chance of damage.
In the box you find a poly tubing bag with your receipt, warranty, a guide to help check your parts before assembly. Stickers, business cards, free shirt (if you can remind me) and all of the gaskets and seals needed to assemble the engine.
We like to include a free tank or tee shirt white or black with every order. The sizes we normally have are M, L, XL and XXL. If there is anything that I have forgot just call us. We will walk you through whatever you need help with for shipping, it’s real easy just 2 minutes. I am not too sure if anyone else that sells engines give free tech support while assembling their engine, we do. Just give us a call.
Returning your core engine
There’s a couple of different ways.
1. Strap the engine to the original pallet it was delivered on and pay the same shipping price back to us. We have seen Bungee cords, Tie downs, wire and just sitting there with a box around it (not recommended). Reassemble the box with drywall screws, nails, staples or just get creative. It’s a good idea to drain the oil out and wrap the engine in visqueen or a trash bag so it doesn’t leak.
2. There’s a cheaper way to return your engine core, but it will require a little effort on your part. Disassemble the entire engine and ship it back in multiple cardboard boxes. I’ve heard a lot of people say it only cost about $100.00, that’s cheap compared to freight. Take extra caution when splitting the case halves, and don’t gouge the case. If you’re not sure about something, call us.
Here are the parts that need to be returned.
These are the parts that you can throw away.
IRS type transmissions
We found that this is the easiest way to ship the IRS type transmission.
These ship through FedEx and they will deliver it to your front door.
They fit very snug, so there’s no movement during shipping.
You can also use the same crate to return your core.
