Its heavy, big, and this is a wild as* guess. I only charge actual cost so send me the asking price and I will box it up, weigh and size it, and check both the post office and UPS. Then, you can send that amount. However, if you don't, I will wait 30 days for you to pick up before disposing.
Leaving out the base would probably reduce the larger part of shipping cost.
Ideal would be a local pick up. I am between Chicago and Milwaukee and Madison.
