I have always wanted a lucas sawmill. I saw one on E Bay with no reserve. I watched the saw for days, and finaly I got enough guts to bid on this saw. The reason I say guts is not because of the price, but the location. I Live in cental PA, and the saw was located in central MN, about 960 miles away.I had 7 days to pick up the saw. The weather here was terrible, very cold, and snow storms coming in. The weather in MN was not much better flood stage water, more rain in the forcast. I half-heartedly persuaded my wife to make the trip with me to pick up the saw, we were both quite reluctant. I got on google, low and behold I found u Ship. I signed up and listed the saw, and in within 15 minutes had two offers. I finally decided on Joe Babij, he had 27 years experience and had positive feed backs. Once I accepted his bid my worries were over. Joe picked up the saw Saturday morning, and delivered it to me Monday afternoon. I would have never thought something like this could be so easy. The price was unbeatable. I figured to rent a flat U Haul trailer, hith it to my all wheel drive Hyaundi, and hope for the best. I calculated the trip out and back would be about $800.00 or more, including maybe two nights at a hotel. Joe charged me $500.00, how could I not go that route.If you bid on big items on any auction sight, you can really get it home without a lot of difficulty. U Ship is a God send for people to get items shipped quickly and at a very good price. If you need something shipped try u Ship, I don't think you will be disappointed. L Laney
