Unaccompanied. The terminals have a pickup counter just for cargo.

I know some have had issues with bus transfers where the package gets re-routed/delayed but mine showed up faster than UPS ground.

My anecdotal on greyhound is almost all bad

I have shipped 911 motors for less than $400. Now that it is boxed well you can look into other door to door shippers. It is big but not heavy.

The buyer recommends https://www.upsfreight.com/aboutus/contactus/index.aspx .

I'll call them in the morning, and thanks for the input.

I've shipped unaccompanied boxes from DC to Seattle before. The was clothing items though. This was from the Silver Spring bus depot.

A couple years ago I shipped a TLC engine, then a tranny from WVA to MD. It was probably 4 to 5 hundred, and it had to be on a pallet, drained etc.
