Engine in Bothell,Wa needs to get to Urbana, IL asap

Bedrockjon has a Silver Diamond straight 6 Engine/bellhousing in Bothell,WA that I could really benefit from here in Urbana, IL. The engine in my daily driver (and only truck) has given up the ghost -hence the need.

2 issues as I see it-
1) It's not palletized, nor does he want to mess with that. He will however load it on a trailer or in a truck bed.
2) The sooner I can get it, the better.

Any chances that there is someone near him that would be willing to pick the engine up/lash it to a pallet/ and say drop it at a Fastenal store or similar to get it coming my way? Naturally I would compensate you for your time/materials.

General thoughts on getting something like this done successfully would be appreciated as well. Any craters/shippers to recommend?

Hopefully someone will be able to help. I would love to, but I am around 500 miles one way to his house, and then a return trip, just to get back to Nampa. Shipping is always a killer. Good luck.

Found an engine locally, no longer need to ship this one.

Thanks,

Just in case...I was delighted to find out that YRC Freight would transport a 1300lb (5'x4'x3') machine on a pallet 2200 miles to my house for $140. It's really hard to beat prices like that.
