Living in the regional area of Bundaberg Queensland. My obsession with collecting large Video Game arcade units has really been limited to purchasing them from Brisbane and driving down to pick them up. 
Melbourne seems to be a huge honey hole source for these items and I've always dreamed of getting a rare arcade unit. Recently one came up on eBay! My heart was filled with excitement yet at the same time I was disappointed when I saw the location of the unit. Melbourne! I racked my brain for two days trying to work out how I would get this item home! I considered flying down and driving back. I called local transport companies... I tried everything. Then a TV series called Shipping Wars that airs in the USA sprung into my head. I wondered if Uship actually ran in Australia. So I did a google search and to my amazement Uship was in Australia. I thought I would give it ago and posted the eBay listing to it. Which i might add was so simple with there integration. A few days later I got a bid from a transporter! I felt like I had won the lottery! I was so pleased someone was willing to drive all that way from Melbourne to Bundaberg and deliver this item. So I bided top dollar on eBay and won. Uships website worked fantastic and allowed me to accept the transporters bid. I paid my deposit and called the shipping company and organized the location of the item. A week later and knock knock at my door the item had arrived perfectly packaged safe from all that way. I was so happy! I wanted to give the guy a hug! So my overall experience was amazing. And now I no for future where I will be going to get my items shipped across Australia.
