Re: Cross-country shipping of large network/computer gear?

I was wondering if anyone could provide any advice or suggestions on
shipping heavy/bulky equipment (~300 pounds, about a half-rack worth of
gear) on short notice cross-country?  We're obviously looking to minimize
cost, but realistically it can't be in transit for more than two days.
Are
there any companies or methods people would recommend?  Thanks in advance
for the help.

Thanks again,
Matt

This probably is too small of a load for this but we have had good luck
moving high value industrial control panels using the special cargo division
of carriers like United Van Lines
(http://www.unitedvanlines.com/spec/highvalue.htm?gid=9).  Basically
standard household moving trucks with crews dedicated to moving high value
electronics, exhibits, art, etc. around the country.    With a 2 person crew
in the truck you can go a hell of a long ways in 2 days though the cost may
not be exactly pretty.
