International shipping of palletized rolling chassis

I'm shipping a roller (no motor or trans) from Germany to Los Angeles and am trying to find as much information as possible, or even a specialist that can handle transport. I have contacted only one source (a little alarming at close to 2600 Euro) and am looking for other's experiences. Car is on wheels but will be crated along with body and some ancillaries, meaning it will need a fork lift and it's own shipping comtainer, I imagine. Do most kits come in pallets? How does one commonly handle such a large parcel? What are common prices? Thanks members...
