Seriously, that's not bad for a non-freight option, considering they will
probably have to package it well (or at least thoroughly). This sounds
like a SSA100/SSA1010/30-drive model?

I got a quote for shipping one of my Laserjet 4SI printers. 125 pounds,
about a 2 foot cube. It was going to be only $100 for freight shipping to
the midwest, but $150-200 to crate/pallet it. Those rates don't get much
better for one-off shipping.

So best I can suggest is grin and bear it, and next time get one closer to
home. :)
