I bought some gates on eBay and wondered how to get them home, someone suggested Uship which I joined and I think is a top way of getting something unusual moved and possibly even a small package moved! It was not without its problems 1st courier let me down due to family issues two days running and subsequently the gates were stolen as the seller had left them out , thankfully for me I had informed the seller to ensure they were put away! Refunds were made and I started my search again. A week later just as I was about to purchase some more gates I received a call from the first seller saying that the gates had been recovered by the site security and they were mine if I still wanted them. So I arranged a new courier via Uship who I thought let me down badly saying he would pick up Tuesday when they weren't he said he had told me Wednesday but his message clearly stated Tuesday I didn't get into an argument but should have! As the Wednesday morning he text me at 6.30 am to say he had van trouble and wouldn't be able to do the job! And so onto the next courier who eventually got them to me a few days later the were supposed to come the Friday but were missed off the wagon to Leeds but arrived the following Tuesday Quite the saga but still think its a great way to move something. I have my own van but could not have done it as cheap it would have taken me at least 4 hrs to go for them ok when you have time to spare!
