Well not quite. I bid and won a Plasma TV on ebay which was listed as a "pick up only" item. The tv was located in Maryland and I am in Australia ! I use an international freight forwarder based in florida so I needed to ship the brand new, fully packed set 1000 miles. The large international carriers could not help me as the tv was not on a pallet. I found a US based courier broker but they could not process my mastercard as it had a non US billing address. By chance I found Uship ! I placed an ad, the bids flowed in and in 24 hours had found Jeff who picked up the set on a weekend and drove it to florida in 2 days. The seller of the tv was so impressed, he sent me photos of Jeff picking up my tv ! The freight forwarder is palletizing the tv for final shipment to Australia. Only in America could the whole process have been so easy. Thanks Jeff for a great job and Uship for making the process so easy. Dr Sanjay Kapur
