Re: Cross-country shipping of large network/computer gear?

FedEx will be your best bet.  Trust me.

You COULD do a counter to counter shipment via an airline cargo desk. 
That MIGHT be cheaper but you will still have to transport it from your 
spot to their pickup and back again on the other side.

Rail is not an option because it is across country.
Ground/Highway is not an option because it is across country.

Your only choice is by air.

Use FedEx.  Life is short.
