Well I Googled it. What rate class do you guys use to ship motor
freight? I'm going to ship a game and the guy I am using uses class 85.
What is the downside of using a rate class other than the one for arcade
games?

I use 100. The downside is that they could charge you more, or you could
have a problem if you need to file a claim.

The place I called today said they thought 125 but it seemed a bit high. Is
there a site that explains the different rate classes?

This is the information that I received from Robyn:

"The freight class depends on the deminsions. I will need the length x
width x height to determine that. The NMFC number is 84180. That
number identifies what the freight actually is. And yes, it must be on
all of our Bill's of Lading or BOL's. If you ever need an NMFC just
call me and I can get you that information."

She did tell me that coin-op arcade games were 100 when I talked with
her on the phone a month or so ago.

dont forget to add the width/length of the pallet the game will be on,
that is what counts, not the actual game width and length on bottom.
then the height overall while its on the pallet.
