How would you ship a Tacoma bed?

I have been looking for a replacement bed for my truck since mine is pretty beat up. Found one on Craigslist but, it is 1000 miles away.

Anyone ever shipped one? Any suggestions?

I wouldn't even know how heavy it is without the gate? Can 2 people pick one up?

I was thinking of doing that myself!! But, with gas and everything, would cost me over $500. I have freight shipped crated motors, terminal to terminal and that was fairly reasonable. And I would certainly use your redneck approach to pick it up from a terminal.
