I needed to move an Oliver Super 55 from my parents home in Sommershade Kentucky to Royston Georgia. My Dad gave me this tractor when he and my Mom had to leave their old Kentucky home for Texas. I was a little nervous to haul it myself so started researching experienced haulers to see what that would cost. Google brought up UShip. I explored the site and saw that it worked like eBay. Shippers can bid on your shipping needs and you can select the one you want, not necessarily the lowest cost, but also the one with the best feedback. The feedback and experience was more important than the lowest price since this tractor is very sentimental to me. Well Ropeadeal (Roy) had 35 years experience as a truck driver and now hauls I believe because he just loves to do it and make his Customers happy. He was very flexible on dates and time around the time I needed the tractor shipped. I could not get the tractor started so called Roy and he said we could pull the tractor up on thr trailer sine I had a truck available to pull it. I invited Roy to breakfast the morning of the haul and he graciously accepted. After breakfast I rode with him in his very nice Ford diesel truck to the tractor location. After several tries and a shit of starting fluid, the old Oliver fired up so no need to pull it. Roy was very patient and helpful during the whole process. He secured everything lime someone who has done this a thousand times and was on his way. He arrived before dark at my Georgia home. My wife met him at the rendevous location and led him to our home site. Roy fired up the Oliver and offloaded the scrape blade, and tractor just where I wanted it. I wish I could get this kind of service everywhere. Thank you Roy and UShip for making this a very pleasant experience!! I can highly recommend using UShip evertime I need a shipment.
