    Anyone have any recommendations for shipping carriers to ship a used plow if I buy one from a distance away? How much should it cost to ship an 8' plow from upstate NY to CT (about 300 miles).

    find a small vehicle and trailer and pick it up.

    cost you a lot more to ship it.

    Yeah from my experience, if it's less then 500 miles one way it's usually cheaper to drive after it.
