I recently built a log cabin in the Highlands of Scotland and drove my truck up in May last year from Newbury Berkshire.Icompleted the job and a day later there was 500mm of snow and -18 degrees at night for about 5 weeks. O dear, I am not driving back in those conditions, so I googled transport systems and Bingo U-Ship came up. An hour later i had put it on the auction and had 10 replies from which I chose one to do the job. When I met the driver there was still 500mm of snow but we got her loaded an off he went. We met up the next day in sunny Newbury. The risk of driving back(when the truck had been sitting during that cold spell)meant there was a chance of the truck breaking down. So along with the cost of a driver and deisel was not worth it. U ship did it for me. Mission accomplished. Thank you, really good idea.
