      I second the Greyhoud recommendation.
      I recently bought some gas pump skins from a guy who cut nearly 75% off the UPS quote.I met the bus at my local terminal and was a breeze to pick up,all properly packaged by him.If they have room in the belly of a bus coming near you,they'll except it.

      They do not accept this at UPS, or will deny any sort of claim if there is any damage/loss. If you got this through UPS, you are very lucky.

      Find a Pallet, shrink wrap the trans to stop anything from leaking and protect it from the weather, Strap trans to Pallet. Poke around online for LTL shipping quotes (Less than Truck Load), or call UPS/Fedex.

      I've been quoted about $100-150 to ship a pallet with 4 wheels on it from New York to IL, so it should/would be in that neighborhood.
