I had great luck shipping with Fastenal, sent a simplicity across the state for $150.00 and a hood to Texas for $25. Not all the guys at the local stores know about it, you can get info on their website.
I would give U-ship.com a Try. if they want too much I would look for a carrier that has route's from your area to the Rochester area and see if it could go onto a Semi Tractor trailer load. I hope this helps, Kurt
