Our company uses Young Brothers Ltd. often so I had an assistant contact them. I got a quote for the random description of 500 pounds of small arms ammunition with a pallet size of 36" x 36" x 24", Oahu to Kahului. The quote was $93.00. The boxes need to have the correct Hazmat decals, available online. YB sent the form for Hazmat that will hopefully be attached to this reply.
See? Posting the question here did get the answers he needed/
Seriously, thanks for going the extra mile to help. I think there's value in posting questions in case there are tips and advice experienced forum members might offer.
In your opinion, is $93 for 500 lbs of ammo traveling that relatively short distance a good value? Or do you think it's a little steep? In the grand scheme of shipping, 500 lbs is pretty small.
Out of pure curiosity, is the pallet size more, or less, of a pricing factor compared to weight? I've seen some instances where you get a better deal if you pay for a full pallet versus a partial. Maybe that's not how inter-island works, but I've seen this when shipping on the mainland or overseas.
