Not sure where you live.
But when I was looking at having a shell shipped from Cali, US to Canada, it was going to be around $1200.
You could use https://www.uship.com
It's like a shipping marketplace where you can get people to bid on shipping your item. With cross-border shipping, make sure that they are legally allowed to though.
I also got in touch with CPX Transport. They run across the line a lot also. Got a similar quote from them. They could either drop it at your door, or drop it at one of their depot yards for you to pick up.
Anywho, the deal fell through. The seller backed out of the sale. So I never did go through with it all and bought a different one on this side of the border. 
Not sure what you planning on doing with the shell when you get it there. Getting someone to do work an it and send it back? Selling it to someone there? Have you got all the legalities straightened out? There's a bit of hoops to jump through when selling/buying one cross-border, in case you don't already know.

US
I was quoted $1500 from MS in 2019, price is most likely higher now. It was also a 9 month wait for the shell when I got the quote. I never went through with it so I don't know how they were going to ship it.
Send MS an email they usually respond in a few days.

Does anyone know what the cost of shipping a new body shell to the USA? What's the best way to do it?
