I just hired a new cabinetmaker, and he’s got several nice pieces of equipment that are still sitting up north in storage.
The issue is whether to pay for shipping to bring it down, or just sell the items up there and buy the equipment more close to the workshop. He’s got a Timesaver sander, a Dodge dovetailing machine, and a few others that we haven’t talked about yet. He’s called a few shipping companies and the best deal so far has been UPS freight at a cost of $2800 bucks or more.
Just trying to figure out which is the most cost effective way to handle this. Don’t want to see him losing money selling good equipment in a bad market place, but I don’t want to spend a huge amount on shipping the equipment either.
