I bought the lift on eBay and listed the shipment. Stipulated either a RGN or trailer with ramps as being best because I didn't have access to a loading dock. After a week of looking, Bo couldn't find an available trailer so I told him to find a plain step-deck and I'd build a ramp. Bo found a truck to haul it and I used most of my pile of used RR cross-ties to make a dock. When the truck arrived, we tested out my brand new dock and got the lift landed on good old terra-firma. Whew! If I have an occasion to ship something again, I'll definitely list with uShip. uShip was about $500 cheaper than the other place I got a freight quote.
