Are you asking for a transport company (the seller should figure that out) or ideas on how to install it, ie laying on the ground?

I recently installed a trans in my X5M, seller used a shipping company because it was heavy as hell. I bought a built trans for my turbo K swapped MR2 and the seller used FedEx because it's fairly light.

As for install, I tried using a creeper but sometimes it'd roll around on me when I didn't want it to, needed leverage, etc so ultimately it was easier to lay on cardboard on the concrete and then just humped the trans up on my stomach and with some help of a floorjack.
