Uship was fabulous to work with (It was my first time) and the service provider was excellent as well (BKK Transport). The car I purchased on Ebay, a 1971 Torino 500 station wagon, was located 2 hours west of Portland, Oregon (Which would be the Pacific Ocean by my estimation!). I had budgeted $1000.00 for shipping. BKK Transport won the auction with a bid of $943.00. I had calculated the total cost for me to fly out and drive the car back to be about $1500.00 The seller drove the car to Portland, met with Charlie the truck driver on 9-20-2012, and Charlie delivered it to me @ 6:30 pm here in Mt. Zion, Illinois 9-25-2012, a full three days BEFORE the projected delivery date! The entire episode could not have gone better. I will certainly use Uship again and hope to get the same trucking company (Rick White Trucking of Grand River, Iowa) and the same driver (Charlie Knotts). These guys rock!
