I've worked with a company called Keyboard Carriage in the past, but their "bag" is that they do shipping "dock to dock", such as would be the case at music stores. I did get them to make an exception for me to ship out an old Hammond Organ that the Assembly of God church I belong to was getting rid of. But I had to have enough guys from my shop there so as to assure the driver the thing could be loaded.   I also wanted to mention that later on this year, I will be obtaining a trailer to tow along behind my new Ford Diesel Truck, and I often make "parts and installation runs" throughout the country. One such trip later on this year will be from home base here in central Illinois to California via Texas, Arizona, Colorado and several states in-between. If anyone has something to move that can wait a few months to make happen, just EMAIL me privately and we'll see what we can do about accommodating you.   Faithfully,   "Arp in the Corn Patch" Richard Schneider SCHNEIDER PIPE ORGANS, Inc.
