When I bought the M37 military truck on eBay, it was located about 500 miles away. Due to its age (54 years) and the fact that these trucks are not really highway rated, I wanted to ship the truck. The eBay recommended source wanted over $1700 to move the truck, but with uShip I was able to shave over 900 dollars off that price. Ken the shipper was a great guy to work with, he is knowledgeable about old cars and has the equipment to do the job right. He gave me personal attention and did a careful job of loading and unloading the truck. He also moved the snow plow that came with the truck with no problems. He mentioned that he understands that old cars often come with extra parts and can work with that. I must say that all 4 of the bids I received were less than $1000 so in any case I would have saved lots of money. It actually was sort of hard to decide who to go with, all the bidders looked good. In the end I went with price. I particularly liked the ability to link the pictures from the auction to the uShip site, saving me the trouble of having to do it myself. From now on, any time I have something big to move, uShip is my go-to source.
