Try ACME it's a company like FedX who deals in large packages.

I'm not sure about price, but when we were looking around a few months for 
somebody to move our Big old, heavy  620 from Atlanta, to Houston, IBM 
recommended FedEX.
We were surprised that they used a commercial package shipper for such a 
large package.

Can anybody recommend a good, inexpensive (i.e. cheap) method to ship an
AS/400 half-way across the country?  It's a 9404-200 so it's not huge but
still it's probably too big and heavy for UPS.  It's an old system so it's
not worth a lot but we would still like it in the same general shape when
it arrives as when it left.  There's no hurry so if it can save some money
it's OK if it takes awhile to make the trip.  It should probably go on a
pallet but I don't believe that we have one at the origin so we'll need to
find one.  Other packing suggestions are also welcome.  Thanks.
