Default Shipping a flathead

Any recommendation for a transport company, or tips on shipping a flathead, from Las Vegas to Alberta?

I recently shipped an engine I rebuilt to Iowa from Massachusetts. I went to Fastenal and discussed the shipment. They even gave me a nice pallet that I modified to secure the engine.

$174 and it got there in 5 days. The buyer picked it up at his local Fastenal.

You did not specify if it was a flathead engine or a flathead car??? Not sure about shipping over the border

I used engine shippers.com.for a motor I purchased from Walt Dupont in Maine.
It was a few years ago but it cost 250.00 from Maine to Calif.
