kayak shipping

What is the cheapest way to ship or get a kayak that is listed by an individual on gear swap when it is 700 miles away. I am in north Arkansas and the boat which i am most interested is in Boulder Co. Other options are as far away. Any one been down this road recently? Many thanks, john

GO Greyhound!

I recently shipped a hard shell from Albuquerque NM to Portland OR, for about $100 through Greyhound Express Freight. This was super easy and reqd. no boxing etc., I took it down to the bus station and had it put directly on the bus, it showed up in Portland a couple days later. Before I went this route, I looked at all other options, i.e. FedEx UPS etc. etc. and nothing compared to the deal with Greyhound

I see that Greyhound has an 82" length limit. That rules out any kayak 7' or longer. Is there a 'specialty shipment' feature I'm missing?
