I was shipping a big DOALL bansaw (1500-2000lbs). ; I was a bit nervous about shipping it because it is very heavy but rests on a thin base which makes it top-heavy and tippy.  My shipper (themaxview) earned my business by giving me the best price and also being persistant.  He really wanted to do this job and did a good job.  He also unloaded the saw.  The machinery company I bought the saw from recommended a shipper which quoted me twice as much and wouldnt unload.  Not only that but Brian got the saw to me in less than 24 hours after I accepted his bid where as the other shipping company said they would get to it when they had space on a truck.  Overall a great experience with uship and Brian.  I hope when I need other machinery transported Brian is up from Texas or uship can find me someone else as good.
