I won a new 2007 GRAVELY 260Z mower on ebay for a great price, but had not enough free time to go pick it up. All the large shipping companies offered me quotes that were way above what i thought was reasonable. they also wanted the mower crated which would cost me an extra $100. thats when i decided to put my shipment up on uship. Being a new customer to uship i was a bit reluctant to accept a bid. Who would not be concerned that a new $10,000 machine may get picked up and never arrive at its destination. I accepted a bid from tristar for less than 1/2 of the price quotes form the big guys. The driver Larry was excellent overall, very professional, great communication, very timely shipping, and he had the lowest lowest bid!! It arrived on time without a scratch as promised. He saved me the huge hassle of making the trip myself. And the mower was parked in the front lawn when I got home. The big companies quotes were only to the closest terminal. I still would have had to go pick it up!! Have no doubts if this guy offers you a bid. I would definately use Larry and uship again. best
