Default How to ship to Canada from North Carilina

I have a request from a possible buyer to ship a plane to a postal code in Canada. I have a box to use that was just sent to me with a similar sized airplane. The box is 6'x3'x2'. How can I do this? Greyhound and UPS are not options. Too big for UPS and GPX does not go cross border into Canada.

Thanks for any suggestions.

No preference except to think that rail freight would be impractical on such a small shipment. I went to a website for a quote from a logistics provider and he told me I would also need a customs broker and they would charge about $150-$300 - just for their services! If true, that would make the whole thing impractical.

fed ex freight will ship it for $275 to Toronto. You can go to their website and figure it out.
