I just received an SGI Challenge GR in a "Terminator" chassis, which is
almost the same size as an E6000.  The E6000 might be a little wider,
but I'm sure that the Challenge is a little deeper.  It was shipped on a
pallet by truck to a freight depot, and I rented a box truck to get it
to my house.  If it weren't for the liftgate, I wouldn't have been able
to unload or load it.  Big computers are -heavy-.

Yellow freight shipped my Challenge from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to
Austin, Texas in about three days at a cost of about $250.

Where there's a will, there's a way.
