    There are a ton of freight companies near chicago, are you looking for door
    to door, or terminal to terminal? Terminal to terminal I have used Forward
    Air, Roadway, Old Dominion, one of those would probably be the cheapest way.
    For door to door, the only one that comes to mind is NAVL (North American
    Van Lines), just make sure you package well, make sure the game fits within
    the footprint of the pallet, or it could be damaged by passing forktrucks,
    some companies require a wooden crate surrounding the game, Forward Air for
    one, does not.

    ooops, apparently Forward Air DOES require a pallet now, sorry, been a
    while since I used them.
