When my wife found out that I had won the bid on a small tractor 1000 miles away she said I was nuts. How in the world could it make sense for a 65 yr. old geezer to drive alone that far and back? She had a point, I must say. I did the math and the trip would cost me over $300 + food, etc! What could I do? I went online and searched "shippers" and found uShip. What a neat idea, an auction like Ebay but in reverse for transportation services. I soon had several reputable companies bidding for the opportunity to bring me my tractor. I watched in amazement as the prices went down. The bids were accompanied by descriptions of the companies and reviews from their past customers. I selected CycleTransit to do the job at a reasonable price. The pickup and delivery went just fine and cost me less than I could have done it myself! THANKS, uShip. J. Farnor, Richmond, VA
