How much does it does cost to ship a tandem in a cardboard bike box?
Assume west coast to east cost and insurance to cover $2000.
Also cost for a shop to pack it up.

FedEx, UPS, etc. all have on-line shipping cost estimators and could pick the box up at the shop. Shop cost will vary.
fwiw, 2 years ago I paid about $110 to ship a tandem from Wisconsin to Washington.

I just had quote to ship mine from Montréal to Vancouver: can$92 + tax.
It's freight rather than parcel and it's a commercial account -- I couldn't tell how much it affects the price...

Ended up selling it to a local buyer. My wife and myself were sad to see our faithful Santana go after so many years and memories.

Santana has all those tandem vacations to plan for, and so is a source of expertise.
Their web site has tandem travel tips (http://santanatandem.com/Events/TravelTips.html) and they sell boxes and cases (http://santanatandem.com/Techno/TravelCases.html).
Because our tandem box exceeds UPS and FedEx size limitations, Santana uses and recommends DHS/DANZAS, a worldwide freight forwarder. For hassle-free door-to-door tandem shipping, call 1-800-426-5962.
