I posted a shipment on USHIP looking for bids to have my Grandfather's 1940 Ford 9N tractor shipped from Tx to MD. This tractor had been in my family since it was purchased new. It had been sitting for a number of years behind my grandfather's house when I heard from my father that Granpa was thinking about getting rid of it. I thought on it for a couple of days. I remembered how 25ish years ago it was the first tractor I learned to drive. Before that I could remember Granpa taking me for rides on it with him. My Father spent many many an hour on it as well. Granpa had even taken my 13yr old son for his first tractor ride on it when he was but 2 or 3 yrs old. The more I thought about it; the more I knew I didn't want it ending up in someone's hands who didn't have any connection with it. Even more, I didn't want to see it end up in a junk yard. I called Granpa and told him how I felt about it and let him know that old thing meant a lot to me and I'd like to have it. He agreed to let me have it. About a year ago I had moved from Tx, up to MD so it was going to be quite a haul. Enter USHIP. I used Skytl; and TJ was great. His equipment is top notch. He's excellent with communication, and he's very accomodating. The price was good, and TJ had a great attitude. The ford wasn't in running condition. Upon delivery another tractor was used to pull it off of TJ's trailer. It was going to have to be pushed back into it's new parking spot by hand though. TJ went above and beyond in my opinion when he offered to help put some muscle behind it and help push it by hand back into the barn where I wanted it. TJ is great and I think he's a great asset to the USHIP community. Thanks again TJ. I hope to do business with you again.
