Get in your car, drive to a central Michigan Penske rental truck lot, rent a truck and a car dolly. Drive the machine to your place yourself (if you don't think you a capable ask your relatives or friends for guidance to an able body).

Truck lines destroy machines all the time. The people on U Ship (at least the ones on the TV show) would scare the hell out of me. Get insurance on the move if you are going forward with a common carrier.

Dont let someone move it for you, I went thru Uship and ended up with a machine spread out over 10 pallets in different states of damage and missing parts after they received it in 2 crates. Still recovering from the loss.

Been hearing horror stories like this which is why I am driving equipment I am buying myself. It is a bit more work and time, but...

Moving seems to be the hardest thing to do.

Take care of the egg, or clean up the mess...you decide.
