need help transporting a cooler

I need to transport a Tundra 160 Cooler from Bozeman, Mt to Ceiba in Flagstaff. It needs to be there by Feb. 10th. UPS is over $200 and Fedex is similar. Anyone headed that way or have ideas as to how I can get it there more economically?

$200 is crazy. Look into a LTL carrier. What kind of cooler? Might be better to just buy a new one.

Dose it make sense to rent one from Ceiba, if no luck transporting? Doesn't look like they have prices for it on there website.

Renting

It would be sensible to rent from Ceiba however they donít have one available for our trip time that would fit in my frame opening.

I think they wanted $75 to rent one for my 2017 trip. I've heard some of the other companies comp the coolers for the trip (even when you are bringing your own boat/gear) if your group is renting gear and doing a food pack with them.

I ended up getting there a few days early so they could pack it. Never quite understood why they need it so far in advance. A day seems like plenty of time to put food in a cooler. I could see if they were gonna freeze ice directly in the cooler or something, but they just pack it with block ice like normal.

Good luck with finding a ride for your cooler....definitely a pain in the ass to ship it.

For $200...its almost worth buying a new cooler from Canyon Coolers and having them drop it off.

Rental cost

We were quoted $100 rental cost for our 24 day trip. I think thatís fair but they didnít have one available that would fit in the space I have for my Yeti Tundra 160. Iím sure Iíll dind a way to get mine there. They prefer to have them at their facility 2 weeks prior to launch date.

Post the dimensions and weight. I’ll give you my ups quote. Bet it’s $30 or less.

Dimensions

With a cardboard wrapper it would be roughly 46.5 inches long, 22 inches tall and 20.5 inches wide weighing in at 58 lbs.

Thanks!

The issue you run into with ups and the same one I can’t get around is your large package designation. You can look up their definition but essentially if your total dimensions are more than 130” they take it to you. (L x 2+w x 2+h x 2). Sorry I couldn’t help you. My bulk discount does not apply to large packages or to LTL freight.
