I bought a Mini Excavator down in central Florida and needed it shipped to Illinois by Tuesday for a job in Chicago. Unfortunately a blizzard raged in the upper Midwest the weekend before this deadline. UShip allowed me to arrange shipment of this unit on time and below budget. After having traveled through a blizzard, the Excavator engine compartment and control pod were packed solid with snow. I had to use a heat gun to thaw things out before the unit would run correctly, but we were on the job site Tuesday in Chicago.
