I bought 2 large rear ag tractor tires form a farmer in Cleveland area. I drove out to Terra Haute, Indiana to visit friends; thinking I'd haul the tires back on the roof of my car. Probably could have, but the farmer talked me out of it. Instead, I took just one on the roof. Now I needed to have the other one shipped. Another trucker from CT told me about uShip.com. ; I punched in my needs and BINGO!! In short order I had some offers to haul. Ken said he could pick it up on the 19th and deliver it on the 20th by 5pm; so I agreed. He showed up at 4;15pm. Although I was in no hurry for delivery it is nice to see that Ken kept his word. In the future I'll be sure to access uShip.com again and refer it to others too! One last thing... it wasn't much more than two minutes after I accepted Ken's offer on the computer and was beginning to provide pick-up instructions when the phone rang and there was Ken to acknowledge the fact that he'd just recieved my acceptance for his bid!!! In closing, uShip.com certainly runs a 'tight ship'. Thanks, Jeff Meehl
