I bought a commercial wood chipper off of eBay. I immediately listed it on uShip and received some very good bids. I had previously bought another item that also needed to be handled as freight and requested several likely candidates to rebid to include both shipments. Northern Haulers came through with a very reasonable bid. Their bid wasn't the cheapest, but the feedback left for them, also left me no doubt as to who I'd want to haul my freight. They were great about calling and giving me an estimated shipment date. I took delivery of the wood chipper this evening, less than a week since accepting their bid. I was kept informed and up to date during the day, and the chipper arrived right when they said it would. Got it unloaded, a pretty difficult job right there, but managed wonderfully by the hauler. I'm sure Northern Haulers wasn't expecting to drive into a flood zone, but they weren't fazed a bit, nor even slowed down! I can't say enough good things about my experience with this company. This being my first listing with uShip, it was a great first shipment. I would highly recommend both uShip, in general, and Northern Haulers particularly, and am pleased to have a forum to more effectively express my regards for such fantastic folks.
