As a present for myself, with my wife's blessing, I bought a 1999 Emerald Mica (similar to British Racing Green) Mazda Miata. I enjoyed the car immensely but my wife found open air driving, especially in hot Sacramento not to her liking. I then spent countless hours looking for a hardtop to match. After several weeks, I lucked into finding a very nice woman in Bellingham WA with a hardtop in the exact same color! After an inspection by my father in law who lives in Vancover, I made the deal. However, I had no clue how to get it down to me. I tried UPS cargo, but they wanted $500! So I googled private shipping and found I was immediately impressed by the website and signed up. I originally found a different shipper who worried about damaging the hardtop during delivery so my first bid was rescinded. I gave that shipper a positve feedback for her honesty. The second shipper I found, David (clarksmhp) thought it would be no problem as he was also mvoing an antique Wurlitzer. When the hardtop arrived two days later, it had gotten several surface scratches. David was upfront about the problem. After three weeks, he came back and picked up the hardtop and at his expense had the paint repaired. I can't be happier with the hardtop and am very impressed that got me in contact with two shippers with honesty and integrity. Michael (simgolfer)
