$250 for those dimension across the country is a pretty good quote via LTL,
do you know what class the quote was done against ?

As to not being able to strap down, its pretty easy. Go to you cheapie
parts house or if you have a Harbor Freight get 4 web tie downs. 4 if not
long enough for each.

If you can get it to a LTL'ers dock and you know them well enough they will
strap it down for you, might have to hand the guy doing it $10.

Or find a place that ships a lot of stuff and do the same there.

Oh .. and find a place that receives a lot of large shipments and you can
usually get for free plenty of corner and edge protectors.

I haven't had to pay for LTL size shipping supplies in 20 years.
