I decided for X-mas this year that I would surprise my wife by purchasing a new washing machine to match the dryer that we recently purchased, and I found a great deal for one on eBay. The only problem was that the seller was in Brooklyn, and we live in Virginia. After checking many freight shipping websites, I had come to the conclusion that it would be prohibitively costly to have it shipped down here. Just when I was about to give up, I did one final search on Google for freight shipping, and that was when I noticed Uship. After reading about how it works, I decided to give it a shot, and a few days later I received a bid from Bobby (bmttrucking) for $145. The only problem was that it wouldn't be picked up for several weeks, and would only be delivered a few days before X-mas, which I wasn't very comfortable leaving it up in New York for so long. Well, just two days after I accepted the bid and sent Bobby all the information he needed, he called to let me know that he was on his way down and would have it here first thing in the morning. It arrived in perfect condition this morning, and I couldn't be happier. Now I just have to keep it hidden in the tool shed until Dec. 25! Thanks Bobby! Great job!
