The Bandit 54 airdrive has to ship by LTL freight. Crate plus freight is typically between $400-$600 depending on your location. If you can have the airdrive shipped to a business address or freight terminal, this will reduce the shipping cost (Residential delivery with a lift gate adds cost). Also, if you are within driving distance of Katy, Texas, feel free to pick up your airdrive in person! It will easily fit in most pickup beds or small trailers.
