This is a freight item to heavy for UPS: I can calculate Conway freight shipping cost from the terminal to a terminal in your area if t is one. I will need your city and zip. If you don't provide both I can't figure cost. It will be actual cost. However...the freight rates have risen tremendously including fuel surcharges. Todays fuel surcharge is 35.8% that the freight company adds onto the shipping cost. No such thing as cheap truck freight anymore.
