Due to my mother and father's sudden illness, my brother and I have had to liquidate our parent's assets in their home. The task was made even harder because I live in NC and my brother/parents live in OH. We had given away or removed most valuables from their home but were in a quandary as to what to do with a brand new washer & dryer my parent's had recently purchased. My washer had stopped working, so we thought the logical solution would be to have them shipped to me. In between trying to manage our own households, care for our parents and work, we started contacting other transport companies on how much it would cost. What a nightmare! They all wanted to nickel and dime us (extra costs for everything from removing them from the basement of my parent's home to providing a lift gate to get them on/off of the truck) and asked questions that only someone in the shipping industry could answer (?freight class?). I have to admit I was skeptical when I listed my shipment and the bids I received were on average $600 lower than the other quotes I was getting. But we decided to give it a go and accepted a bid from Dirtkarter44. What a blessing! The process was effortless, the cost very reasonable and Dirtkarter44 was easy to work with. He provided updates while in transit and actually delivered our items the same day they were picked up! ‘Positive’ feedback just doesn’t seem to express how satisfied we are. How about ‘Fantastic’?! My brother (who happens to work for the world’s largest package delivery company), husband and I are now converts and will recommend the site and Dirtkarter44 to anyone who needs their services. Thank you all again for a job well done!
