I'm wondering what would be a worth while amount to ship from Texas. Would these amounts be worth shipping? I know the best way to ship this amount is going to be LTL freight. Which is not a problem I have access to forklifts and LTL carriers.
I've got approximately:
250lbs low grade boards
500lbs mid grade
300lbs peripheral
25lbs small multi socket mb
10lbs multi metal socket mb
5lbs single metal socket mb
3lbs large multi socket mb
20lbs back planes
5lbs gold finger RAM
10lbs gold finger boards
35lbs gold pin connectors
1lb ea green fiber metal top CPUs and no pin CPUs

I'm not sure how far south they go as far as base docks but try old dominion
Toll-Free: 1-800-432-6335
I've used them in the past
I didn't plug it in but I see around 500-1000.
If you don't mind waiting. Gaylord or pallet them up and an ltl bid is in order.
You may need to work your way up the command structure a few people but you can work a girth vs weight structure as long as you're nice about it .
I use ODF and Fedex both for fright; primarily for lead panel recycling
My last ltl with ODF put my lead and a near complete load of bubble bubble wrap from another customer on the same trailer; showing ways of making weight work out. If you pack it right that seems to me to be about two gayloards worth. So you just need to wait for a trailer heading in that direction to hitch a ride on.
There's some ltl guys listed in the business or site topics; one I think was from or in Texas

I work for a major oil field PVF distributer, we use old dominion as our primary LTL carrier for most of the lower 48. In fact I just talked to our odfl driver Friday about shipping he advised me to call the dispatcher in Shreveport, LA and he could fix me up.
