After having purchased a 3500 lb. tractor which was located in Chicago on Ebay the seller ( a very large equipment distributor ) could not find any of their regular shipping companies that had depots in Virginia that could handle this item. Seller asked me to contact trucking companies in my area to see what they could do.
I put the shipment on uShip and in days had numerous bids, selected a provider, and in a week had the tractor without incident at my doorstep
( over 1000 miles from Chicago and through snow and rain the entire trip)!
Will always use uShip from now on.
